Last week, the Ban Ki-moon Centre hosted the second GEEF Preparatory Meeting in Seoul at Yonsei University. The Centre’s partners at the Institute for Global Engagement and Empowerment (IGEE) helped in preparing the meeting and led the discussions on the upcoming Forum.
GEEF 2020 will take place on February 26-27, 2020 in Seoul, South Korea. This year’s theme for the Forum will be “Planet and Partnership.”
The meeting at Yonsei brought together members of the Ban Ki-moon Centre, including Board member Ambassador Kim Won-soo along with the team at IGEE and a representative of the Yeosijae Future Consensus Institute in South Korea. Additionally, Al-Farabi University in Almaty, Kazakhstan and Bordeaux University in France joined remotely for the discussions.
During the meeting, the attendees discussed the proposed panel sessions as well as upcoming steps in organizing the Forum.
The Ban Ki-moon Centre looks forward to contributing meaningful sessions to the Forum and to engaging youth and women for the SDGs!
