    The Seoul Metropolitan Government will hold the event of “Together! 4th Anniversary Party of Seoul Citizens Hall” to celebrate the anniversary. Since its opening, 7.3 million people have visited the Seoul Citizens Hall.

    Over the past four years, various citizen activities have been held at the Seoul Citizens Hall. It hosted 23 citizen participation programs for 5,033 occasions in total; 140 couples married at “Seoul Citizens Hall Wedding”; and public spaces were rented 3,156 times. In addition, the Seoul Citizens Hall served as a venue for communication with citizens. A total of 6,393 citizens voiced their opinions at the Seoul Speakers’ Corner. Among the suggestions made by citizens at the Seoul Speakers’ Corner, 210 suggestions related to the city administration (measures to reduce smell in elementary school toilets and ease conditions for funding young entrepreneurs, along with many others) were reflected in city policies. A total of 61 “Policy Hearing Debate Forums” were held to hear and reflect opinions of experts and citizens. A total of 1,251 citizen’s opinions proposed at the debate session were realized as city policies, such as the permanent operation of the Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market and the expansion of small weddings held at public institutions.

    The Seoul Citizens Hall has evolved with citizens over the past four years and there are plans to open a second Seoul Citizens Hall in late 2017 to respond to the positive response from citizens.
