This 'Eco-friendly food cooking class' is offered once a month, totalling 9 times a year, as a part of a carbon neutralization project, 'All-ta-all-tan', which aims for the safe and healthy life of local elderly people. The event is hosted by Yangjae senior welfare center, Woomyun general social welfare center, Seocho senior happy e-eum center.
Elderly people are learning to practice carbon neutralization in daily life, splitting the ways to food, clothing, and shelter, through participating in the Alltaalltan project & the eco-friendly class this year. This is good for caring for my health, and helps to practice consumption value in the community.
20 elderly people have participated in the 'Eco-friendly food cooking class'.

A participant, Gowoomin (77, male) said, "As I have got older, I see that I have got to do what is good for me and others. I will definitely do what I've learned today."
Seonyoung Park(67, female) said, "I am interested in eco-friendly food as much as using Han-sal-lim. This makes both me and the environment healthy, so it's my consumption value. Here I want to learn further about healthy cooking."
Haeok Jo said, "Because the lecturer has easily explained about the organic food ingredients, I thought in future I would purchase organic ingredients as much as possible. Growing old, there are more medicines I take. Wouldn't it be so good to practise them if they helped us with our health?"
