Organizers for the Gwangju Summer Universiade Promote Universiade at the UN Headquarters


The Organizing Committee for the 2015 Gwangju Summer Universiade held a special promotional event at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

Headed by the Secretary General of the organizing committee, Kim Yoo-seok, organizers were invited yesterday to the ‘International Sports Day for Development and Peace’ organized and hosted by the United Nations.

Celebrating the 2nd anniversary since its initial establishment, ‘International Sports Day’ was created to recognize the values of sports that contribute to social development and peace.

Organizers for the Gwangju Universiade were invited to the event by the United Nations’ “Peace and Development Project Through Sports with United Nations Office for Sports Development and Peace,” as a means to support the Universiade.
