Last March The Chosun-Ilbo initiated the 'Youth Future Expedition Team 100' project to provide young Korean people in their twenties with unlimited opportunities to explore all over the world while solving their curiosity and finding answers to our futures. The project aims to dispatch 100 young people, based on their proposals and plans, to all parts of the world where they believe the future is being shaped on an ongoing basis. The project is scheduled to be completed before March 2020, the Chosun-Ilbo's 100th anniversary.
The explorers will explore any 192 countries in six continents and meet whoever of 7.5 billion people on earth. The project covers the entire world from the issue of the digital innovation led by Artificial Intelligence to African scientists studying the future of species, without any limit on regions and subjects.
For instance, as of early May 2019, the young explorers explored the launch site of Space X Falcon 9 rocket at Cape Canaveral in the U.S., the Kilimanjaro mountain in the Tanzania to witness the climate change, Silicon Valley and the Wall Street to study impact investing, or Berlin in Germany to learn about the current mega-trend of the vegan lifestyle.
The members of the expedition are given a period of one week to complete their missions. Each member is matched with a reporter from the Chosun Media Group (the Chosun Ilbo, TV Chosun, and Chosun Biz, etc.) The reporters act as mentors or guides for the missions If you have inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
