2021 Dream Together Seoul Forum (credit: dtsf2021.org)

Korea Sports Promotion Foundation would hold the "2021 Dream Together Seoul Forum". 'Dream Together Master program,' which KSPO is organizing together with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Seoul National Univerity has marked its ninth anniversary this year.

The 'Dream Together Master program,' has nurtured 137 sports administrators in 49 developing countries, who have returned to their homes and are contributing to improving Korea's national status by achieving outstanding performance in their work based on the knowledge they learned here.

'Dream Together' literally means dreaming together. The title holds the meaning to dream bigger by sharing the achievement of the Korean sports field and Korea's experience of social development through sports, and by establishing a close network with each other.

Diverse discussions are going to take place during the '2021 Dream Together Seoul Forum' under the theme of 'Sport and SDGs for the New Globe'.

This year marks the 33rd anniversary of the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Just like the Seoul Olympics played a pivotal role in bringing an end to the Cold War and international unity, hoping '2021 Dream Together Seoul Forum' actively makes usage of both the tangible and intangible legacy of the Seoul Olympics, and serves as a starting point in coming up with practical measures for achieving sustainable development as well as world peace.

Dream Together! Let us dream together! Let us put our joint efforts in order to achieve SDGs through sports and bear fruits through this forum.

2022 IKSU Annual International Conference: 'Korean Politics and International Relations at Crossroads: Past, Present and the Future (credit: isapuclan.org.uk)

In the run-up to the 2022 presidential election, the IKSU Annual International Conference will discuss how South Korea’s politics and international relations have evolved since the founding of the First Republic in 1948. The international relations of South Korea tend to heavily depend on each presidency, especially with regard to North Korea and relations with surrounding countries. In this sense, this conference will explore the past, present, and future of South Korean politics and international relations from a number of perspectives. 

We plan to hold the first day of the conference at the main campus of the University of Central Lancashire, which is located in the city of Preston in the north of England, and the second day of the event at the Samlesbury Hall, a stunning 14th-century manor house and gardens in Lancashire.
