Participation in Jeju Youth Forum

Four local students attend the Jeju Youth Forum online

For over six years four local International Certificate Program students have attended the annual Jeju Youth Forum which is held on Jeju Island, South Korea.

The Jeju Youth Forum brings together more than 150 students from over 40 cities to discuss global issues and promote intercultural awareness.

Given the pandemic, OCDSB students have only been able to attend virtually for the past two years. International Education Coordinator, Sean Oussoren, and four ICP students participated in the Jeju Youth Forum over three days during the weekend of November 12th (and not getting much sleep because of the time zone differences) and found the opportunity to share and learn from other students from around the world to be empowering.

In spite of the challenges of the pandemic keeping most of the student delegates in their home countries, the Jeju Youth Forum continued to be a success in demonstrating youth leadership
