Embassy Seoul’s Public Diplomacy Officer Joshua Lustig (left) spoke with approximately 30 high school students at the Pyeongtaek American Corner, Dec. 1, 2022, about the need for young people to engage in international affairs while playing an active role in the U.S.-Republic of Korea (ROK) alliance. Following a brief presentation, the students asked questions about the U.S.-ROK security relationship, trade issues, and how they can pursue international affairs. Students also spoke about their own internationally-focused social impact projects based on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Pyeongtaek is home to United States Army Garrison-Humphreys—the largest U.S. overseas military base in the world—and the Pyeongtaek American Corner, which was recently highlighted on the American Forces Network for its collaboration with volunteer teachers from U.S. Forces Korea.
