As the COVID-19 is becoming a worldwide threat, the world has been going through a confusion that it has never experienced before. Not to mention the discrimination and hate between nations, races, and people, the process of the world peace and cooperation based on the collective values is collapsing. What we need now is to minimize the confusion and to reconfirm the basic fact that the world is a single community.

2020 Busan Democracy Forum hopes to:

First, emphasize the importance of the cultivation of the responsible Global citizens for carrying out the SDGs in the pandemic situation of COVID-19 around the world and to seek ways to fulfil this by utilizing an integrated approach and setting mid/long-term tasks to achieve the objectives.

Second, deal with the problems of the climate change and inequality, the biggest challenges to our universal lives, in the view of the global citizenship education by linking them with various subjects such as sustainability for the preparation of the Post COVID-19 era, environment, human rights, peace/non-violence, cultural/religious diversity, and styles of living.

Third, find new alternatives and tasks to fulfil by establishing the civic independence in the preparation of the Post COVID-19 era through integrated approaches on the global citizenship education and SDGs 4.7, SDGs16+ and by discussing on the integrated ways to restore the collective values.

Deadline to register: December 1. 

Event Speakers:

Patricia Garcia, Partnership Development Manager of the Institute for Economics & Peace
