    Global Smart City Seoul that promptly and transparently shares the current state of COVID-19 outbreaks and response situations in real time South Korea saw a sudden increase of confirmed patients in the early stages of the COVID-19 emergency as a result of mass infection by a specific religious group. In response, the Korean government promptly provided a supply of diagnostic kits based on the “Emergency Use Authorization System” that was introduced in 2017 to respond to the situation with quick diagnoses of numerous test subjects. Furthermore, the government enforced prompt testing with drive-through screening stations, quick and intense quarantine measures, tracking of confirmed patients’ paths of movement, and quickly provided transparent information. Through such a systematic and quick handling of the situation, the number of patients in quarantine continues to decrease with the current recovery rate at about 50%. The World Health Organization and foreign press consider South Korea a model case of a nation’s response to COVID-19.   A 24-hour countermeasure team was operated immediately following the outbreak of the first confirmed patient in Seoul, and in addition to discovering patients quickly, the city has made all-out efforts to prevent local spread through the self-quarantine of individuals who have come into contact with confirmed patients, the social distancing campaign, and concentrated management of high-risk groups. All related information is transparently revealed to the public and close cooperation is practiced with provincial cities experiencing grave circumstances as an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within Seoul and throughout the entire country of South Korea. Critical rules to observe for stopping the spread of COVID-19 include transparently announcing information and responding quickly. In order to abide by these rules, the Seoul Metropolitan Government opened and operates a Korean website that offers information to locals and also opened an English website on March 25 for foreigners as means of speedily providing information on the COVID-19 situation. The English website can be reached by clicking on this link: http://english.seoul.go.kr/covid/. The website offers: ① Daily Reports: Transparent information such as a dashboard on the current state and a log of confirmed patients’ paths of movement ② Screening Clinic: Information on drive-through screening stations and walk-in screening centers, as well as the diagnostic capacity of South Korea ③ Countermeasures: Operation of Clean Zones, management of risk facilities such as Shincheonji-related facilities and high-risk industrial sites, information on various support policies ④ Promotion, Campaign: Promotion materials for foreigners, information on the social distancing campaign ⑤ Information for Foreign Visitors: Special entry procedures, measures for international students, special broadcast with COVID-19 updates ⑥ International News Reports: List of main articles published by foreign media regarding COVID-19 The information above can be found easily on the English website.

  • MITI – Metropolis International Training Institute

The main mission of the Metropolis International Training Institute (MITI) is to strengthen the institutional and professional capacities of local and metropolitan authorities and their leaders for better public governance.

The Metropolis International Training Institute (MITI) is the training and learning center of Metropolis, established in 1996.Today, MITI counts on headquarters located in Seoul, and four regional centers: Cairo, Mashhad, Mexico City and Paris (Île-de-France). Formerly located in Montreal, the headquarters have been transferred to Seoul after a decision taken at the Metropolis Board of Directors’ meeting in Guangzhou, in 2012.

With its relaunch in Seoul, MITI enters a new era of knowledge dissemination, with the boosted activation of its regional centers. MITI will spare no efforts to operate training programs in line with other Metropolis activities, for all members of the Association, and also for its institutional partners and affiliated cities.

  • 공유도시(Sharing City) 서울은?

시간, 공간, 재능, 물건, 정보 등 누구나 소유하고 있는 것을 함께 나누어 활용함으로써 쓰지 않고 놀리는 자원을 효율적으로 활용하고, 지역경제를 활성화하며, 이웃과 공동체 의식도 형성하고, 환경에도 이로운 활동인 '공유'가 활성화된 도시입니다.

'공유도시 서울' 정책을 추진하게 된 이유는?

복지, 환경, 일자리 등에서 사회적 수요는 급증하고 있으나 한정된 예산과 자원으로 이를 해결하는데 많은 어려움이 있습니다. 또한 급격한 도시화로 공동체 의식이 실종되었고, 과잉소비에 따른 자원고갈과 환경오염 문제가 지속적으로 발생하고 있습니다.
이러한 해결이 어려운 도시의 경제적, 사회적, 환경적 문제들을 '공유'라는 새로운 방법을 통해 완화시켜 나가고자 합니다.
