India-South Korea Youth Forum is a platform that seeks to empower youth ambassadors from India and South Korea by facilitating student-to-student dialogue and deliberation in order to promote mutual trust, exchange of ideas and cross-national understanding.
The forum aims at reaping the benefits of significant convergence of interests between the two countries and strengthening bilateral ties of the two nations through Track II Diplomacy. Although designed to be a non-governmental affair, the long-term agenda is to influence high-level diplomacy. The forum is focused on delving into the depths of political, economic, cultural, historic and strategic ties between the two countries.
In the past year, the forum has organised a Chat With a Diplomat session with Mr. Yoo Chang-ho, Minister-Counsellor, Political Affairs, Embassy of the Republic of Korea in India, and former Amb. Vishnu Prakash, at the Korean Cultural Centre India on the topic ""Role of India and South Korea in the Asian Economic Integration"". Mr Yoo Chang-ho also addressed the members in a virtual CWAD on ""South Korea's Response to Covid-19: Lessons for India.""
The forum employs a multi-sectoral and multi-dimensional approach while designing its activities by including entertainment, history, defence, technology, economics,
socio-economic issues, heritage and culture, and encourages development of not only academic knowledge, but also various essential skills. Thus, through food walks, mock diplomacy sessions, panel discussions, guest lectures, policy briefs and a wide range of other interesting online/offline events, members of the forum try to unravel the dynamics of the India-South Korea Relations.
