Seoul Metropolitan Government will hold a Free Speech Corner every Saturday from 12:00 to 16:00. Using the ‘Let me talk!’ stage in Cheonggye Plaza, Seoul citizens or foreigners visiting Seoul will be able to speak publicly about events, their impressions of Seoul, or any other topic.
For the last three months, numerous citizens ranging from a 13-year-old elementary school student to an 83-year-old pensioner have participated in the Free Speech Corner and presented their personal opinions freely. The subjects of discussion varied from personal difficulties to social issues. The event was held twelve times up until April 2012, with 149 people participating. Seoul City strives to reflect the memos, suggestions and other public opinions that have been presented at the Free Speech Corner in the city government administration.
