Assembly Venue

The location for our CWM Assembly 2016, is Jeju Island, Korea. Not only is it recognised internationally as one of the ‘New 7 Wonders of Nature,’ ‘A Biosphere Reserve,’ or a ‘World Natural Heritage’ it has also been designated as ‘The Island of World Peace’ by the South Korean government. The purpose of the designation was to establish stability and peace on the Korean peninsula, and ultimately contribute to world peace (according to the special law no.155/article no.1 of Jeju government).

According to government statistics, it attracted 10 million visitors in 2013 and is South Korea’s most popular holiday island. It is well known for natural wonders, including waterfalls, white sand beaches and a dormant volcano — South Korea’s highest mountain — at the center of the island.
