Mus and Pete Participate in APSCEIU Symposia

Asia-Pacific Center of Education for International Understanding (APSCEIU) is operating unde the auspices of UNESCO, was established in 2000 to promote education for international understanding toward a culture of peace in the Asia-Pacific region.

To fulfill this mandate, APCEIU-the first regional center of its kind – works in collaboration with governments, academia and civil society organizations of the 45 UNESCO Asia-Pacific member states as well as UNESCO and its regional offices and other partners.

Mus and I attended their 5th Anniversary celebration dubbed as International Symposiun on a Culture of Peace, Partnerships for Peace and Sustainability in Asia and the Pacific last 25-27 of August 2005 at Sejong Hotel, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

So here goes the gallery of pix:

Seoul – First trip

Seoul – An Album

Last July 26, 2005 just barely three weeks here in Korea, the Foundation had its summer vacation. So Agnes, Mus and I decided to go to Seoul to visit NGOs. My immediate contact was Joyce and CONET, Reverend Park and Mr. Choi. With the help of Mariko, I was re-introduced to Atty. Jeff Plantilla, I’ve met him before during my CPAR days (voulnteer work with the peasant coalition).

So here goes our pix in Seoul, this is a retrospect – well just last month though…

trip to Insadong, the dolls, the masks, with Ayoung and Joyce

a dinner courtesy of CONET and groups, ah yes they adopted us for 2 nites, thanks so much to their hospitality, the resto is cute, the wall is a big grafitti wall, Agnes made her marks

Sarangbang and Minbyun visit, thanks for their time

a visit to Suwon migrants workers center and women’s center, they hosted a dinner for us, thanks to Joyce and the group

it was an experience learning to ride the Seoul subway and maximizing its amenities and services – Itaewon ifo/tourist center with free net access and we don’t have to carry our luggage we left it at the subway’s paid lockers.
