Newsletter # 1, June 2020
At a time when global cooperation and interaction are needed more than ever.
The Delegation of the European Union (EU) to the Republic of Korea is supporting a variety of civil society cooperation and exchange activities over 2020 and 2021. As part of those efforts, we would like to open a range of communication networks, such as this newsletter, to facilitate easy-to-access information exchange.
Focusing on the comprehensive theme of human rights and discrimination,
this EU-funded CSO Network will support various events, including interview, workshops, and international conferences over the next two years. Through these events, we hope to gain a new perspective by exchanging various opinions on issues of common interest and concern, as well as serve as a stepping-stone for further continued exchanges and networking.
Wishing all members of civil societies orgnisations and their families to stay healthy and strong!
Ambassador of Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Korea
