A total of 19 students and 4 staff from Multimedia University (MMU) partook in the second Global Youth Leaders Exchange Programme in South Korea from 8 February until 11 February 2020. The programme was also attended by more than 200 universities from Indonesia, Philippines, Japan, Cambodia and South Korea. GoGo (Global Leaders + Go Again to Gangwon) programme is a project by Gangwon Province for youth global leaders to experience the local and modern cultural ambience in Gangwon Province, South Korea.

The MMU outbound mobility team from VPAI Office, Faculty of Computing & Informatics (FCI), Faculty of Creative Multimedia (FCM), Faculty of Applied Communication (FAC) and Faculty of Management (FOM) had the wholesome journey which started with the Sancheoneo Ice Festival for fishing, ice skating; snow and skiing experience at PyeongChang and had good moments at their Winter Olympic legacy – Ski Jumping Centre.

The team became guests at the PyeongChang Forum 2020 (PPF) for the Special Speech & Peace Leaders’ Dialogue with speakers from United States, United Kingdom, Norway and South Korea on creating and preserving peace amongst nations as well as SDG. At Jeongganwon the team experienced the Korean Traditional Food Culture workshop for the preparation of ‘tteok’ sweet snack in a traditional way.

The team journeyed through the DMZ Peace Tour to view the Hwajinpo History & Security Museum and the Goseong Unification Observatory. They did not miss the Peak, Peonghwa Cable Car ride to drink the beauty of nature with snowfield. As a gesture of its closure, they were greeted at the EDM party – ‘thank you for coming award’ ceremony with the accompaniment of Korean artists. The good memories from this outbound mobility program bestowed them with values through cultural diversity, sports as a unifying vehicle, and networking spirit as global youth leaders.
