Thank you for visiting our blog.
We are a team of professionals who live and work in Devon, and who have been selected as a team to undertake an exchange program with a group of professionals from Jeollanam-Do which is the South West province in South Korea. The theme of the exchange is peace and conflict resolution. The team is made up of team leader Sally, and three team members, Ed, Lucy and Sulina. The team will be leaving for South Korea on 1 May 2013, and returning on 31 May 2013. We will spend the month travelling around the province of Jeollanam-Do, engaging in cultural and vocational visits to exchange learning about peace and conflict resolution. The intention of the exchange is to foster and encourage international relations, raise awareness of Rotary intiatives and provide development opportunities for young professionals.
The opportunity is provided to us by Rotary’s Group Study Exchange program, and you can use this blog to find out more information about the program and about Rotary generally.
The team is currently meeting every few weeks to plan our trip and undertake full research of the province which will host the team. We are also attending language classes in Exeter University, and our sincere thanks go to our patient teacher, Joohee ,who is going to great pains to develop our spoken and written Korean.
We will be updating this blog on a daily basis throughout the month of our exchange. Please follow the blog to receive our updates.
Sally, Ed, Lucy and Sulina
