 Abstract
The purpose of this study is to measure the trust and distrust perception of our society about science and technology. In addition to examining trust and distrust in science and technology, we also looked at trust and distrust in geoscience technology. In addition, by comparing the levels of trust and distrust in science and technology and geological resource technology, the implications for improving the reliability of geological resource technology are drawn. This study surveyed male and female office workers over 20 years of age working in the Seoul metropolitan area on the trust and distrust of science and technology. The results of this study show that respondents showed above-average trust in science and technology and geological resource technology. According to the gender or age of respondents, there was no difference in trust and distrust of science and technology and geological resource technology. As a result of examining the difference between trust and distrust in science and technology and geological resource technology, respondents showed higher trust scores in science and technology than geological resource technology. These results suggest that current communications activities on geological resources should be more active and diversified.
