The current situation on the Korean peninsula has taught us how important it is to keep peace. We invite youth and foreigners to participate in our peace event on June 23rd. Our event is non-political and humanitarian. The motto for this event is: Above politics. Above borders. Above ideologies. It’s all about giving hope to people around the world. We hold this event to show our support for a peaceful solution to the problems on the Korean peninsula.
