It is our honor and pleasure to invite you to the ‘2014 Dream Together Forum’ to be held at the Centennial Hall of College of Law (Building 84), Seoul National University in Korea on Friday, November 28th, 2014. This forum aims to provide an international platform to address the topic of ‘Sport for Global Development’. We believe that the forum topic is consistent with that of the Olympic Movement’s sport for development initiative and that the forum will be an optimum place to share and promote these values with not only the Korean sport community but also with the Asian sport community.

 

The ‘2014 Dream Together Forum, Seoul’ also intends to celebrate its second year of launching the Dream Together Master Program. The Dream Together Master Program is a full scholarship graduate program funded by the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism (MCST) and the Korea Foundation for the Next Generation Sports Talent (NEST) using the national sports promotional funds that aims to educate next generation sport administrators as a part of the national project to contribute to international sport development. It was launched with a mission to educate, support, and connect those who will lead sport in countries where sport is underdeveloped. This forum is an important part of this national project to contribute to the international sport community.

 

Experts from the eld of sport development will participate as speakers of the ‘2014 Dream Together Forum, Seoul’. They include Professor Jean-Loup Chappelet, Public Management at the Swiss Graduate School of Public Administration (IDHEAP), Professor Gertrud Ursula Pster, Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sport, University of Copenhagen, Mr. Barry Maister ONZM, IOC member, and Mr. Gerardo René Aguirre Oestmann, President of Guatemalan Olympic Committee.

 

The speakers of our last year’s Dream Together Forum were IOC member, Secretary General of the National Olympic Committee of Sri Lanka and Professor from Loughborough University. The speakers delivered speeches on various topics on ‘Sport for Change’, such as the role of dierent sport institutions and global initiatives for change. This year we would like to take this theme one step forward and discuss the topic of sport for global development.
