I've been posting a lot about this new group called the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Korea - Young Leaders Group (YLG) and have been pretty excited about it since it is the first official attempt in South Korea to bring together like-minded young professionals under the age of 35 to talk about urban development and real estate related issues that affect the natural and built environments we live in.
I am especially excited because I have never met another group of people as passionate as the team we've assembled to help make this simple idea a reality.
One of the great things about our group is that we're from all over the globe and can speak over 3 languages: English, Korean, and German as we have natives from London, Germany, Korea, and of course the U.S.
In the upcoming fall and winter months we will be working together to program a number of fun and intellectual events to bring together the urban planning, real estate development, and design community in Seoul.
I personally invite anyone living in Seoul with a passion for meeting others and the built environment to come to our first event which will be held in the beginning of this September. We are planning a launching party somewhere in Gangnam, Itaewon, City Hall, or Yeouido, so be sure to keep up with us on Facebook since we will be releasing the event details between August 17 - 24.
We look forward to seeing everyone soon! 화이팅!~
