- Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do, is the only county in Korea that is divided by the military demarcation line and covers lands from both South and North Koreas. Because of this geographical characteristic, Goseong is the place where the scars of the war and division still exist but also has a lot to offer in terms of its historic, political, and cultural values. Goseong also boasts its pristine nature especially in the DMZ that has tremendous ecological value.
This session focuses on proposing the ‘Goseong UN Peace City’ based on its unique heritage and value and establishing sustainable development plans for this city.
Experts from various fields will lay out their creative suggestions and roadmaps for building the network of Peace Cities, urban design for this area under the international laws, and potential cooperation plans between the two Koreas as well as with international organizations. We hope that this discussion sets off the journey toward building Goseong Peace City and spreading the messages of Peace and sustainable development as well as the harmony of humans and the nature.
