New Grant Supports Programming on South Korea's Soft Power & PD Innovation
CPD is pleased to announce a grant received from the Korea Foundation to support a series of programs in 2018 that explores South Korea’s soft power and the broader challenges and opportunities in public diplomacy innovation. Programs will include immersive storytelling and public diplomacy, sports diplomacy and the next installment of CPD's "Public Diplomacy in the Heartland" initiative.
Collectively, programming developed through the Foundation's support underscores the importance of engaging young people and exploring the next frontier of public diplomacy tools. These programs will not only create conversations about soft power practices by South Korea but also foster discussions about the future of public diplomacy.
