The May 18 Academy 2024

 

The May 18 Academy is an international educational/training program designed for civil society activists, especially for human rights and democracy activists from all around the world. The curriculum includes courses which provide all participants a special experience through lectures, activities and field trip. This not only helps to promote better understanding of democracy, human rights, and peace, but offers a valuable opportunity to communicate with other activists with their specialized fields, building a network. Furthermore, the program gives all the participants a chance to learn about South Korea democracy and its history.

 

The May 18 Foundation has invited over 360 NGO workers from over 50 countries since 2014. This year, the Foundation plans to invite around 13 participants through selection process, taking place for 4 days from August 28 ~ August 31.

 

This year, marking the May 18 Foundation’s 30th anniversary, we are planning to re-invite the ones who have experienced and participated in the Foundation’s international projects before.

 

The May 18 Academy 2024 with the theme of Homecoming Day, will focus on sharing each participant’s experience about their lives after they encountered the May 18 Foundation, taking part in its international solidarity projects.

 

The participants will be selected in a way to ensure diversity in terms of professional and academic backgrounds, religion, ethnicity, gender, and field of interests. The selected participants are expected to attend all the Academy sessions and actively participate in them. The selection will be conducted through document screening and the interview screening.
