In line with his global reputation, nearly 300 people including faculty members and students of HUFS participated in the event.
During his lecture, Ban Ki-moon put an emphasis on gaining knowledge and wisdom and how both elements should be well-balanced with each other. He also illustrated the significant role of leaders through his own example: leaders should not wield their power abusively, but should use it for their members and have consideration for others.
Ban Ki-moon also added some words concerning the current tensions between two Koreas. He mentioned the importance of alleviating current conflicts between South Korea and North Korea, and that every citizen should make concerted efforts to better the relationship between two Koreas.
