“Isn’t it detrimental to animals in the Hangang parks if waste buried underground still remains there?”
This was one of the questions asked on July 26, by a foreign student after a city official at the World Cup Park Management Office made a presentation about how a giant landfill in Seoul has been transformed into several eco-parks.
The 60 international students who gathered that day are members of the Seoul International Student Forum, which is run by the Seoul Metropolitan Government every year in a bid to generate ideas and suggestions and further integrate them into the city’s policies. The forum members come up with policy proposals to help Seoul provide a more convenient living environment for foreigners and expats and become truly globalized.
