On November 29th and December 7th, 26 elementary students from the Sharing Culture & Arts Association participated in the Centre’s ASEAN School Tour Program. The Sharing Culture & Arts Association is a non-profit organization that conducts global citizenship education programs for youth. Students visited the ASEAN-Korea Centre in order to learn about ASEAN countries. The program opened with a welcoming speech by the Director of ASEAN Hall, followed by showcasing the video “ASEAN-Korea, We are Friends” and a lecture on ASEAN. Afterwards, ASEAN officials delivered their country presentations and had a brief discussion with the students. As for the cultural activities, students actively participated in the ASEAN Golden Bell Quiz and colored and played relay games with “Chu?n Chu?n”, a traditional Vietnamese toy.
The following are testimonials from a teacher and student:
‘[The program] was an opportunity to take an interest in international relations and international organizations.’
‘I want to learn how to cooperate and what areas to strive for and develop.’
