Ashoka Fellow
South Korea
Fellow Since 2013
This description of Myung-sook Seo's work was prepared when Myung-sook Seo was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
Myung-sook Seo is harnessing citizen participation to create cultural and economic development opportunities outside of large metropolitan areas. By mobilizing ordinary citizens to build new hiking trails that pass through villages, she enables local residents and hikers alike to discover previously unappreciated natural and community resources and to build lasting ties beyond those created through typical tourism channels.
