Gather together for a happier life!
Making Seoul a city filled with the joy of life
Communities have become a new focus of policymaking today in Korea. Fifty five local governments together created the Council of Local Governments for Community Building, transcending the progressive-conservative ideological barrier. As the Community Policy has become in vogue across Korea today, it is becoming all the more important for policymakers to ask, constantly, whether citizens are still at the center of their policy endeavors. Placing citizens at the center of these new policy initiatives is the key to making happy communities, cities, and society. — Introduction
