On the last October, Incheon International City Forum was jointly hosted by Incheon Development & Tourism Corporation and the Incheon International Relations Foundation at Songdo Convensia in Incheon, South Korea, with an aim to ensure the sustainability of Incheon as an international city and to find ways to support to co-prosperity of the local community and international organisations in the city.
300 people from international organisations, academic, government and public organisations, journalists, Incheon citizens and students participated in the forum and they benefitted by getting accurate information about the international organisations.
As one of the international organisations hosted in Incheon Metropolitan City, East Asian – Australasian Flyway Partnership was invited to give a speech at the forum. Mr. Spike Millington, Chief Executive of EAAFP Secretariat, explained the participants about EAAFP and its contribution to the Incheon Metropolitan City through policy consultation, environmental events and education for students, and EAAFP Incheon- Gyeonggi Eco-region Task Force recently launched.
Also, there was a provided booth outside the conference room to introduce EAAFP to people attending the event. It was such a good chance to meet students and Incheon citizens in the right place and in the right time. EAAFP Secretariat appealed to them by explaining why EAAFP Secretariat is based in Songdo and what has been happening to migratory waterbirds and their habitats.
