Hope To The Future Association (HFA) is continuing its effort to reduce plastic waste through planning the Green Light campaign led by youth in Korea, and it supports activities that aim to achieve UN SDGs. 

HFA has 7,000 students from all over the country participate each year. Interest and understanding of the UN Sustainable Development Goals have increased. In October 2020, a youth forum was held to discuss the environment and climate change and seek solutions, and more than 100 students participated in the campaign, leading to practical activities. 

Face-to-face education and campaign activities were difficult due to Covid 19, but many students are participating in non-face-to-face education and volunteer activities using online zoom.
