Partnership Day – Korea Day

Date: Friday October 28, 2022

Time: 9h00 – 16h30 Korea Standard Time

Venue: GGGI Conference Room in Seoul, Republic of Korea

Theme: How to scale-up impacts and accelerate the delivery of GGGI Members’ green growth ambitions

Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) has developed strong partnerships with an array of Ministries and affiliated agencies from its Member and partner countries. The year 2022 marks GGGI’s 10th Anniversary as an Inter-Governmental Organization. Currently (as of July 2022), GGGI has 43 Members and operations in 37 countries. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, GGGI shifted the GGGWeek and its Assembly and Council joint session into virtual/hybrid format. This year’s GGGWeek2022 will be the first time, after the pandemic started in 2019, that GGGI will be hosting in-person participations of Delegates from its Member and partner countries.  

In this context, the Partnership Day provides a unique set of parallel events structured as co-organized sessions with Member & partner countries interested to showcase the cooperation with GGGI. The parallel events will feature keynote speeches, presentations on current and future major cooperation initiatives, roundtables designed around key topics, and match-making opportunity discussion tables setup during the long coffee and lunch breaks and hosted by Members (including Agencies and Embassies) to interact with Delegates of the Assembly and Council present as well as other participants. 

The Partnership Day – Korea Day Event will convene various Korean ministries and agencies to share GGGI’s cooperation with these development stakeholders and achievements on our collaboration. Furthermore, the event will serve as an opportunity to introduce GGGI and showcase our work on select themes and areas to all interested stakeholders.
