Sponsored by Arirang and Pyeongchang Peace Forum Steering Committee, the PGPF is held to foster further what the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics and Paralympics have established – the regeneration of the seed of peace in Korean peninsula and the world peace. I had the opportunity to speak on two sessions. First on Sustainable Development Goal 16 (SDG16) and peace, and second on peace education and research, both from the human rights perspective in reference to Timor Leste.

The PGPF also included peace concert of artists from North Korea, South Korea, Israel and Palestine, K-Pop concert (iKON, Winner, NCT127 and others) that was attended by the Prime Minister Lee Nak-yeon. The forum is also attended by Minister of Unification Myung-Kyun Cho, Minister of Women and Family Affairs Jin Sun Mi, former Polish president Lech Walesa (Nobel Peace Prize 1983), Governor of Gangwon Province Choi Moon-soon, activists and academics from all regions around the world.
