Opening of the ?? Young Leadership Forum

We are very happy to be hosting the first ?? Young Leadership Forum. The Korea-China Cultural Center believes that cultural exchange and mutual cooperation between Korea and China is important for the future generation of leaders. Thus the hosting of this forum has been made the first event of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Korea and China.

Following the modern era, the world was reorganized towards Western-oriented values. The freedom and equality shepherded by industrial society brought about the dual axes of capitalism and democracy. Passing through two world wars, the 20th century came to revolve around the United States and the dollar. Now at the start of the 21st century once again we are reflecting upon the question of which values humanity should hold to in the future. In a world that has become an ever shrinking global village filled with intensified competition and increasing division, we must seek the co-existence and prosperity of humanity. We must search for the means of living happily while caring for the world together.

Hence we selected the theme ???? in the sense of ?living for each other,? which has a slightly different connotation than the oft cited ?win-win? English translation of the term. You and I, not one-on-one trade between individuals, but rather each part of the whole tied together organically, living according to the eternal values. If we were to put it in Western terms, in one word it would be ?love.?

Is there a way for the whole world to be saved? Although this has arisen as a global issue for our young people, let us begin with East Asia. Korea and China have a long history of being neighbors, but surprisingly there has been a lack of mutual understanding and cooperation between the two. For those of the next generation whose outlook on life is formed in their twenties, we hope that they will come to have a greater self-image and make a world in which the world-view is one of ?love thy neighbor as you love thyself.? These are not empty words. Through the development of information and communication technology, this reality is fast approaching.

Although this is but a humble beginning, we hope that the ?? Young Leadership Forum will have big reverberations.

The Founder of the Korea-China Cultural Center, Soh Yeong Roh
