On December 9, Seoul held the Seoul Upcycling Forum under the theme, “Upcycling City Made by the Citizens” together with upcycling experts, activists, and citizens at the Seoul Upcycling Plaza.
The forum began with a keynote speech by Ralph Wiegmann, the CEO of iF International Forum Design, to explain the true meaning of the innovative value of upcycling for a sustainable society.
