Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon held a Jan. 24 meeting with the city’s 13 goodwill ambassadors, including Choi Bool-am, Lee Jung-jin, Kim Su-ro, You Ji-tae, Kim Mi-hwa, and Lie Sang-bong, in the City Hall.
Seoul’s goodwill ambassadors are comprised of a total of 34 individuals who represent their own fields. They participate in diverse campaigns and other promotional activities related to Seoul, helping raise public awareness of the city and its administrative processes.
In his greeting remarks, Mayor Oh thanked the ambassadors for their support and participation in TV commercials, promotional materials and meetings with citizens. He asked for their unwavering support this year in helping Seoul become one of the world’s top five cities.
As the first promotional activity this year, Mayor Oh and the ambassadors wrote “hopeful messages” in an event to promote a culture of sharing and citizen participation in the city’s welfare program. They attached the messages to the “hope-sharing” donation box.
The box will be placed in Dasan Plaza on the first floor of the City Hall building to encourage citizens to participate in the city’s hope-sharing campaign by making donations. The collected money will be spent on “Hope Plus Account” and “Child Development Account,” Seoul’s two major welfare programs aimed at providing financial support to low-income people.
