Open Communication forum kicks off in Gwangju

 

The Ministry of the Interior and Safety and Gwangju Civic Rights Committee hosted an Open Communication forum on Tuesday at the Asia Culture Center in Gwangju.

The forum was prepared to discuss various aspects of peoples participation in the modern age.

 

Jongmin Kim has more.

 

The Government Innovation Forum on Modern Direct Democracy favors a multidisciplinary approach, welcoming participants from academic, political and civil society perspectives.

 

The event was attended by civic groups, organizations and academics who work on topics of direct democracy and citizen participation. Along with discussing how direct democracy functions in Gwangju at central and regional levels, the forum also looked at issues like taking the next steps towards a barrier-free Gwangju and youth housing welfare, discussing matters to improve women's safety in public spaces as well as supporting village communities.

 

Jeong Jong-Je, Gwangju City Vice Mayor said, The more participation, the better, so that we can increase democracy and the market economy and the easier it will be to forge a community without discrimination. Jeong added that this network will create an infrastructure for comparing and identifying the most fruitful approaches to participation and democracy in civic life.

 

The first step was taken in Seoul and Sejong at the 2018 Forum on Social Innovation Platforms where cities and democracy advocates discussed various topics and after todays event in Gwangju, the forum will be held in three more locations nationwide.
