The United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP) will today commence with the Asian edition of the Youth Leadership Programme (YLP). Held in Gwangju, Republic of Korea, the 13 day event will focus on the education of young community sports volunteers from different countries in the Asian and Oceanic region.
As the seventh edition of this now well established programme, the Gwangju YLP will invite 33 participants from 19 different countries. Working in close cooperation with the 2015 Gwangju Universiade Organising Committee (GUOC) and the NGO Right To Play, this YLP is set to be the most diverse so far.
The Special Adviser on Sport for Development and Peace, Mr. Wilfried Lemke, is also in Gwangju to meet all the participants, and to take part in the EPICS Forum.
