Since 2018, Yonsei University has been hosting an international forum called Global Engagement & Empowerment Forum on Sustainable Development (GEEF). The objective of GEEF is to further strengthen the global efforts and partnerships to contribute towards implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
As the only university-hosted international forum on Sustainable Development in Korea, GEEF has become an influential platform for all stakeholders and actors to engage one another and explore effective and lasting solutions for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Association of East Asian Research Universities(AEARU) is a regional organization founded with goals of forming a forum for the presidents of leading research-oriented universities in East Asia and of carrying out mutual exchanges between major universities in the region. Yonsei has joined in 2014.
This forum will allow Presidents of leading research-oriented universities to collaborate and carry out mutual exchanges between them. It will become a chance to rediscover the role of ‘Engaged University’ in solving major social issues and achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our event will hold two sessions: 1) Futures of Education, 2) Future Cities, Future Universities.
