Please note this event is held in English. This event is organized in collaboration with the UN Youth of Finland and the Korea Youth Work Agency.
*Korea Youth Work Agency (https://www.kywa.or.kr/) is the key institute in Korea for youth activity and entrusted by the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family (MOGEF) of the Republic of Korea. KYWA works for youth to help nurture their capacity to grow on their own with dreams and passion through various activities. More particularly, for the activation of various and creative experience activities of youth, we will further develop our main projects and functions related to the activation of youth activities. They are sending a delegation of seven students to Finland in order to understand how gender equality works in Finland.
We hosted a delegation from South Korea. Together with the UN Youth of Finland and the South Korean Ministry of Gender Equality and Family we organized a Q&A session. We were working in small groups to ensure everyone could participate to the discussion -equal representation matters! We talked a lot about perceptions both here and in South Korea and how younger and older generations are different -and how the change takes a lot of time to actually happen. Our board members Sanni Selene Tenn and Matti Ylhäisi represented us at the event.
