souce: BGCF

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Busan Metropolitan City and the Busan Global City Foundation are recruiting a team of university student ambassadors, dubbed Busan National Diplomatic Supporters, or “UNs.” The recruitment period is open until July 5. 

Korean and international students from local universities and graduate schools can apply for the team. International students must be able to communicate in Korean language. 

The "UNs" program was first launched in 2020 and has been conducting promotional activities to raise awareness of the meaning and value of Busan United Nations Week and other U.N.-related events in Busan. 

Among 100 selected individuals, 80 students will serve on the operation team and support events organized related to public diplomacy and the U.N. The other 20 “UNs” will serve on the public relations team and focus on events promotion. The student ambassadors must be present at the events. Membership in the group will be revoked if an individual fails to participate in the kick-off ceremony. 

The promotion team will focus on covering the events and creating articles and social media content. Members will also carry out promotion missions, such as creating content at least twice per month. Applicants who run active blogs or social media channels will be prioritized.

All participants will be given an appointment letter, certificate, record of volunteer work hours and a supporters’ kit. 

Any student from a Busan-based university or graduate school is eligible to apply. The application form can be found at the Google link below. Visit the BGCF website for more information.
