Hanyang University (HYU) Social Innovation Center newly launched a project called “Global Volunteer Competition”. This project is a part of the Seventeen Hearts Festival, which is based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals that contains 17 agendas to transform our world. Thus, the HYU Social Innovation Center recruited a global volunteer team that can stir up social innovation and two teams were selected among 18 other registered teams and dispatched during the vacation. 

One of the teams is called “Programming in the Pyramids”, spearheaded by the students from Egypt majoring in the Department of Computer Software Engineering. This student conducted volunteer work including IT educational activities in Egypt, and had the opportunity to teach coding for the future generation of the Middle East.

“HYU Helping Hands Boracay” is another team directed by students from Sweden who majors in the Department of Tourism. Since imprudence tourism in Boracay has brought many negative effects, they launched a campaign about sustainable tourism with the International Committee of the Red Cross along with another local youth organization.

“There are more than 3‚000 foreign students in our school but except for the programs hosted by the Office of International Affairs, there are few programs that foreign students can independently participate in. We thought that through this project, foreign students can not only participate voluntarily, but also counter issues concerning the society around the world‚” said the director Lee Min-ku. If you are a foreign student and have an idea regarding volunteer projects that concern social issues, contact the Social Innovation Center.
