ICLEI Korea signs partnership with Jeju MBC

The ICLEI Korea Office has signed an Agreement of Technical Cooperation with one of Korea’s leading national broadcasting corporations. The Agreement with the Jeju Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (Jeju MBC) was signed by both parties at an official signing ceremony on 24 January 2008, attended by the President and CEO of the Jeju MBC Mr. Woo Jong-Bum, and the Regional Director of ICLEI Korea, Mr. Chin Dae-Shik. The Agreement stipulates that both parties make concerted efforts in promoting joint works that will encourage local governments in Korea and Korea’s national government to implement and support relevant ICLEI Campaigns and projects to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Specifically, the two parties will work together on promoting Jeju MBC’s special coverage programs and co-hosting events on climate change mitigation and adaptation, and also attracting ICLEI Members on the basis of mutual cooperation and the exchange of information, technologies and experiences in a bid to provide technical assistance.
