Dream Together Seoul Forum 2021

Dream Together Seoul Forum 2021

Join the Korea Sports Promotion Foundation for a conference to understand how sport can be used to achieve sustainable development and world peace.


Fri, 11/19/2021

Sports has a powerful force of connecting the world full of diverse race, culture and background to unite it. The end of the Cold War era through 1988 Seoul Olympics, the establishment of a momentum for inter-Korean reconciliation through the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, and the message of peace shared by the refugee players during the recent Tokyo Olympics are all good examples. In the face of sports, nothing would become an obstacle.

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