NYPI Hosts the “2021 Blossom Youth Forum”
The National Youth Policy Institute hosted the 2021 Blossom Youth Forum with EBS, SK Broadband, and Yonsei University. The forum, which was recorded without a live audience to prevent the spread of COVID-19, will be uploaded on the NYPI and EBS YouTube channels and will be broadcasted by SK Broadband’s Btv cable.
The forum was a meaningful opportunity for everyone to come together for discussion and focus on “resolving school violence” from the perspective of prevention, rather than punishment. This aim was not only to identify clues for eradicating school violence but also to prevent school violence in the education field.
The main forum, which was joined by experts, started with a presentation from Attorney Park Sang-soo, who is also the Senior Vice President of the Korean Bar Association, on “Future Directions to Improve the School Violence Legal System Focusing on the Victim.” This was followed by a presentation from Professor Roh Sunghoon from the Korean National Police University Public Administration Department on “Future Directions of Systematic Improvements to Enhance the Effects of School Police Officers (SPO).” The last presentation, given by Director Sung Yunsook from the NYPI School Violence Prevention Education Center was on “The Effects of the ‘Eoulim’ School Violence Prevention Program and Its Future Directions for Development.”
