D-100 2021 Seoul UN Peacekeeping Ministerial

This year 7-8 December 2021, UN Peacekeeping Ministerial will be held at Seoul, South Korea. It will be the largest ministerial-level meeting in South Korea, and the first in Asia. As the opening of this event, on 27 August it was launched the D-100 event and a Kick-off ceremony of the Youth Peacekeepers led by the Director General, Ms. Eunji Seo, the 2021 Seoul UN Peacekeeping Ministerial Preparatory Secretariat.

Due to Covid-19 pandemic, the event was held online using the metaverse 'ifland', the event organized by the Korean government in collaboration with SK Telecom. There are total of 30 participants, including 20 Youth Peacekeepers.

The D-100 event was sequenced as follows: (1) Welcoming remarks and the award ceremony of the Ministerial emblem contest; (2) Introducing the Youth Peacekeepers; (3) D-100 congratulatory video messages. The video messages are from the United Nations, the diplomatic corps based in Seoul, the Hanbit Unit deployed in South Sudan, Korean celebrities, etc. and (4) Award ceremony of the Best Vision Award.

I was also present at the D-100 event, in online platform! Honestly this is my first time using metaverse 'ifland' in an online meeting. Very surprised because it felt like being present at the event venue, seeing the presentation delivered by UN DPO. I also went up on stage for self-introduction and joined a group photo. It feels like real!
