□ Seoul Youth Center for Cultural Exchange (Director Baeg Sang-hyun, hereafter MIZY Center) will hold the 'Asia Youth Workers Training Workshop' in Taipei, Taiwan from October 17 to 19 with the purpose of promoting Seoul's youth policies and empowering youth workers in Seoul's sister cities.
○ The workshop will be the first of four workshops in four cities, sponsored by the city of Seoul and organized by MIZY Center for approximately 40 Taiwanese youth workers. Professor MIN Kyung-bae of Kyunghee Cyber University and Dr. CHO Eunsuk of Myeongji I Will Center, Professor Chen Shu Hui (陳淑惠) of National Taiwan Normal University, and Dr. Wang Zhi Hong (王智弘) of Zhanghua Normal University will present the lectures.
□ The workshop will hold significance as a collaborative effort, funded by the Seoul Metropolitan Government's International Cooperation Division and organized by four youth agencies in Korea and four youth agencies in four different Asian countries. MIZY Center hosted five of the same workshops in Nepal and Cambodia last year. This year, as the workshops are being held in Seoul's sister cities, there is potential for a more sustainable cooperative relationship.
○ CYC (China Youth Corps, Taiwan), Central Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (Vietnam), GCSD (Global Citizens for Sustainable Development, India), and the Youth Desk at Indonesian National Commission for UNESCO, Indonesia) will be the participating youth agencies at the workshops held this year. MIZY Center has signed MOUs with these four agencies with the long-term goal of a sustainable Asia Youth Network.
○ The Korea National Youth Policy Institute, Gwangjin I Will Center, Myeongji I Will Center, Seoul Media Addiction Center (Ssronet) will be the participating agencies from Korea. Youth workers and experts from these agencies will be lecturing on examples of Seoul's Internet and media addiction response policies at work in the field. They will also work on network-building with local youth workers.
□ Since the participants will be practicing professionals, each group will create an "Action Plan" that can be applied to real life cases. These will be followed by substantive and interactive discussion about each Action Plan.
○ Youth workers, teachers, and government officials from relevant agencies will spend the first two days of the three-day workshop listening to lectures about both cities' policies and actual cases they are applied to. On the last day, each group will present their action plans, and listen to feedback from experts from each country.
○ Seoul, as an IT powerhouse, will share their response strategies and experience in dealing with youth Internet and media addiction with their sister cities in Asia. As each country's Internet and media are at different stages of development and their levels of severity are all different, each workshop will contain slightly different content material that relates to the situation in each country.
□ "By empowering youth workers in Seoul's sister cities in Asia, we can ultimately promote a healthy environment for youth in all of Asia," said MIZY Center's Director Baeg. "We see this as an opportunity for a long-term, mutually interactive model to promote international cooperation for youths in Asia."
