Call for Applications: WSCF-AP Regional Program on Peacebuilding & Dialogue in the Korean Peninsula

June 19th, 2018 12:51 am

The World Student Christian Federation Asia-Pacific (WSCF-AP) is organizing  a Regional Program on Peacebuilding and Dialogue, hosted by the Korea Student Christian Federation (KSCF). Thirty-three students and youth are expected to gather in Seoul, Korea between 17-24th August 2018,  for sustainable peace, as they reflect on the theme:  A Prophetic Call for Peace-Ecumenical Students & Youth for Sustainable Peace in Korean Peninsula

WSCF Europe (WSCF-E) would like to invite SCM members from our Europe region to participate in this event and represent WSCF-E in Korea.

Sunita Suna, WSCF-AP Regional Executive and Identity, Diversity and Dialogue (IDD) Program Leader, describes the event, as follows:

It’s timely to hold this regional level program together with the KSCF as we witness the historic Inter-Korean Summit for peace and reunification in Korean Peninsula. The international ecumenical student/ youth community’s presence will bring solidarity to the people of Korea as they pursue the peace process, but also our presence will help us in strengthening the network and relations with the students and youth of Korea, to work together for sustainable peace in the Korean peninsula. The presence of  international community in Seoul this year is also significant as KSCF is celebrating its 70th anniversary of their ecumenical journey among the student community in campuses, Churches, and in Korean society. They will have an opportunity to celebrate together with KSCF witnessing KSCF’s mission and ministry for the last 70 years! We are very much looking forward to having you for the said program in Seoul, Korea.”
