Students from Jeongseon (South Korea)
We receive a delegation of South Korean students from Jeongseon, in the province of Gangwon-do. They are drawing up a project for the revitalisation of an abandoned mining area around Jeongseon, Taebaek, Samcheok and Yeongwol. Their aim is to attract tourism to the area by transforming the decaying image of the mines into a positive resource, creating a city brand. They have been inspired by Bilbao’s example and its successful process of urban regeneration as a draw for visitors.
