As critical thinkers, change-makers, innovators, communicators and leaders, the young generation is increasingly engaging with each other on a number of platforms both online and offline. Provided with the necessary knowledge and opportunities needed to reach their potential, young people can be a driving force for promoting sustainability in this new era of globalization.

CIFAL Jeju / JITC organizes a number of programs including international youth workshops, forums, and Global Citizenship Education (GCED) to invite Korean foreign students alike to understand the commonality of the global issues and to become active promoters of more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive, secure, and sustainable societies.

Jeju International Future Generation Forum
The Forum aims to foster youth global leadership by promoting actionable engagement in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals. Participating young leaders take the in-depth discussion on up-to-date issues such as youth employment, education development and health and well-being. The youth are given unique opportunities not only to build collective minds but also to vitalize city diplomacy by building a hub of social networking through cultural exchange.

Jeju International Youth Forum
CIFAL Jeju organized Jeju International Youth Forum from 2016 to 2021 with the aim to promote Jeju to the world and to connect talented teenage youth across the globe. The event was conducted with a focus on strengthening the leadership skills of the talented young people, exchanging different perspectives on critical global issues and enhancing the cultural understanding of each other.

The International Training Centre for Authorities and Leaders in Jeju (CIFAL Jeju), with the partnership of CIFAL Newcastle, held the 14th Youth Workshop on Youth Engagement for Sustainable Consumption and Production from 10 to 12 July 2019 in Jeju. The workshop gathered students from different backgrounds and nationalities: 20 students from the Universityof Newcastle in Australia, and 27 Korean and International students enrolled in various universities in the Republic of Korea.


The main goal of this workshop was to raise youth awareness and advocacy on Sustainable Development Goals, in particular on the SDG 12 “Responsible Consumption and Production”, by for instance analyzing their footprint and looking into ways in which disaster resilience fit into the SDGs.


The second day was devoted to a field trip for illustrating the current production and consumption management in Jeju with the visit of the Sustainable Environmental Education Center Landfill for studying how waste product and food waste are treated and recycled. Participants also learned more about renewable energy at the Korea Institute of Energy Research.


At the end of the workshop, the participants presented impressive action plans based on SCP and other SDGs by demonstrating many alternatives within everyone’s reach to have a more eco-friendly life. This event was an excellent opportunity for young people to broaden their knowledge and was also an essential occasion to shape them into future leaders.
