Daum Foundation had spent the year 2015 as a time to extend the social impact of Youthvoice, ITcanus, and Ollybolly projects in order to create a next generation which the valued individuals could live together through utilizing media and communications.

In 2015, through ‘Youthvoice Conference’, Youthvoice prepared a moment to share the one-year process with approximately 1000 educators and the public for the first time. Moreover, through stable progress of discovering and training media educator, meeting sound educators and various media were enabled, as well as providing opportunities to carry out more on-site programs for the educators by opening a website that introduced trained educators. Youthvoice Lab carried out various programs that the teenagers themselves had organized and participated, and supported them to freely express their idea through Pre-production support.

ITcanus started two new projects in order to actively support the non-profit organizations’ usage of IT/media. With ChangeON Dot, 18 experts and non-profit organizations were able to have a meaningful time, and through ITcanus fund, we supported IT/media to be of a practical help to non-profit activities. Furthermore, the 8th ChangeON conference was held in Daejeon, and ChangeON @ in Jeju, Busan, Gwangju, Chungju, and Jinju which enabled continuous support following last year to non-profit organizations located outside Seoul.

Ollybolly’s 2015 was a year to seek various ways to utilize picture books. The ranges of the contents were extended by introducing Korean picture book for the first time with Jeju myth as the motif, and additional producing of Indonesian story book. A curriculum for cultural diversity educator was developed for enabling Ollybolly story books to be the content for educating cultural diversity. Based on this, Ollybolly education centers that trains professional trainers for teaching cultural diversity were operated, and trained 27 trainers in total. By carrying out cultural diversity supporting program that enables Ollybolly story books to be utilized in various fields as well as educational part, 11 institutions all over the country conducted cultural diversity programs with the story books.
