  • Action Plan Development: This session will introduce the Youth Advocacy Kit on GCED and GCED Online Campus with interactive exercises. Based on prior knowledge gained from the online course titled “Voices of Youth: Youth Advocacy for GCED,” participants will critically reflect upon the link between identified issues and challenges, and the tools to address them throughout the sessions.
  • Study Visit: Participants will make study visits to several selected places in Seoul and its vicinity to enhance their understanding of GCED-related themes as well as to have an opportunity to network with local youth groups.
  • Reflection and Synthesis: This session is designed to recap learning points of the past sessions, allowing participants to share reflections with fellow participants and facilitators, and to link across different sessions/segments. It is recommended that participants keep reflective journals during the workshop.
  • Cultural Exchanges: The cultural night is an opportunity to build a sense of community among participants while sharing cultural elements and insights with each other. During the workshop, participants will also explore Seoul, visiting some of its cultural heritage sites to examine the cultural aspects of the city and to enhance the mutual understanding through culture.
