  • Introduction of the Citizens’ Council
광화문시민위원회

Although there were many opinions following the opening of the Gwanghwamun Square in 2009, we were unable to come to a consensus. Therefore, the Gwanghwamun Forum was organized to refer the issue of improving the Gwanghwamun Square to public opinion.

Through over 20 meetings, Gwanghwamun Forum drew up and announced 『Direction and Principle for the Improvement of Gwanghwamun Square』,
and SMG announced the master plan based on the direction and principle set up by the forum.

Also, the Gwanghwamun Citizen Council was established on July 21, 2018 to embody the master plan based on the opinions of experts and citizens and to create a ‘civic landmark
of the Republic of Korea that maintains its historical and geographical importance.

In Gwanghwamun Citizen Council, 50 experts from citizen communication, history and tourism, culture and art, and urban space, as well as 177 citizen participation group members come together to discuss the values that Gwanghwamun Square must keep and how to address pending issues.

We will turn Gwanghwamun Square into a space where history and future coexist and where daily and non-daily lives communicate through upward and social consensus.
