The Muaebak Institute of Global Warming Studies (MIGWS) is an academic institution devoted to addressing unique challenges posed by global warming and climatic changes to humanity through research, education, and extension. The Muaebak Institute aspires to be a global institution that encompasses all fields of global warming studies, including economy, energy, natural resources, technology, oceans, environment, health, food, adaptation, policy-making, global negotiations, ethics, and global public goods.
The Muaebak Institute is named after the muaebak legend of Wonhyo, a Korean Buddhist monk in the 7th century CE and widely regarded as the preeminent scholar in the country's history, who traveled 'thousand towns and ten thousand villages' with a gourd with ‘mu-ae’ (meaning 'no hindrances') inscribed.
