The 2nd KFGF Activity Objectives

After returning from Canada in 2012, where I had experienced the wider world as an exchange student, I set the goal of taking part in efforts to promote Korea in the world. While I was looking around, wondering what I would be able to do, I stumbled upon the Korea Foundation. I felt that using soft power to make friends with people around the world was extremely valuable. Whereas the Korea Foundation is working to connect Korea with the world through a variety of events, I think that the role of the KFGF is to connect the Korea Foundation with the Korean public. Our job is to spread the word about the Foundation’s work through public diplomacy and to spark interest so that more people can take part. Through KFGF activities we can not only share Korea with the world but also develop an attitude of learning and embracing other countries’ cultures as we take one step closer to developing the mind-set of global citizens.
