Seoul City: Cities Against COVID19 virtual summit

Published Date: 28 May 2020

Over the last 10 years, SIX has closely followed the social innovation journey of Seoul City. When the COVID-19 hit Korea early this year, the city and its citizens have shown speed and efficiency in its response. At this critical moment, Seoul City is calling for global solidarity and cooperation. 

The City of Seoul will host the CAC (City Against COVID-19) Global Summit 2020: Together We Stand from June 1 to June 5. The summit is designed to invite experts from around the world to share their experiences in COVID-19 and discuss future responsive measures online, instead of physical offline gathering. All programmes of the Summit will be available via online channels, including Youtube, to facilitate accessibility and view for all people around the globe.

This upcoming Summit will consist of the World Cities Summit Mayors Forum, discussions of world-renowned scholars forecasting the post-COVID19 era and in-depth presentations and debates led by field experts from heterogeneous realms of the society affected by the current infectious disease, as well as education, environment and sports. In this era of the pandemic, this Summit will serve as a solid stepping stone for global networks that are focused on not only sharing wisdom from various scopes and domains but also responding to the future infectious diseases.
