As critical thinkers, change-makers, innovators, communicators and leaders, 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 international youth workshops and forums, inviting Koreans and foreign students alike, to raise their awareness on those relevant sustainability issues and to empower them to act for change.

Jeju Youth Forum
The event is aimed to promote Jeju to the world, and to locally grow talented people and global leaders by teaching them about the cultures of other countries. Participating students will take in in-depth discussion about global issues such as gender issue, renewable energy and hunger and peacebuilding. This Forum is also designed to provide a unique opportunity for students from all over the world to contribute to vitalization of city diplomacy by building a hub of social networking for future global leaders and to enhance their 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.
