Korean War Legacy Project

2023 World Congress of Teachers of the Korean War


The Korean War Legacy Foundation was pleased to partner with the Ministry of Veterans and Patriots Affairs and the Social Studies Educators Network of Canada for our annual World Congress of Teachers, 2023.  This event served to recognize the sacrifice of our Korean War veterans and the importance of teaching about the War’s legacy in our schools.

Participants in the World Congress actively engaged in the activities and instructional materials that have been developed to teach about the Korean War and attended historic events marking the anniversary of the armistice of the Korean War. This year’s event celebrated the publication of a new curriculum book on Canada’s participation in the Korean War. Dignitaries from Canada and Korea joined teachers from Canada, the United States, and several other international UN Korean War participating countries to share ideas on how the Korean War can be taught in the classroom.
