After a series of relaxing and fun activities, Secretary General Huang Chin-ying made the following announcement, "Climate change has constantly caused disasters around the world. Given the situation, Achilife members are reminded to be clear about their central idea, refrain from repeating what others say and give constructive suggestions for the country and society. After three years of silence, the third stage-2 Pioneer Special Team meeting was held on October 26th, 2019 and the Pioneer Special Team will move towards the "2.0" version, establish life-related "Pioneer indicators", and predict future trends, which will be conducive to the establishment of a code of conduct. In addition, the re-engraved version of "Justice and Mercy" published 17 years ago will be released. The 26 persons interviewed also include President Tsai Ing-wen and myself. In the future, all of you present today may become somebody in the society. Therefore, we should be cautious with our manners and grasp the principle of doing things."
Next on the schedule was the keynote speech. First, Mr. Chou Po-cheng gave a presentation on "International Sustainability and Health Indicators and Other Policy Benchmarking". First, the speaker explained the profound influence of Staatliches Bauhaus on modern architecture. The presenter went on about Japan’s NEXT21 experimental housing that provides a lifestyle in harmony with nature, uses plants to change the microclimate and temperature of the base in response to the urban heat island effect. Targeting the 17 SDGs proposed by the United Nations, we also attempted to benchmark ongoing businesses. The presenter said the promotion of the design criteria of the "Kaohsiung Housing Plan" corresponded to the UN’s SDGs, effectively planning and establishing sustainable living environment transformation in Kaohsiung. The presenter also cited cases of landscape balconies that effectively reduce the home indoor temperature and have the advantages of beautifying the living environment and improving the quality of life.
Next, Mr. Tai Yung-ti, spoke on "Indigenous Community in Universities". First, the speaker said that the role of the university has changed. Faced with a new civilization in the future, universities should foster talents capable of coping with complex changes. The presenter believes that the indigenous culture is key to the new civilization. He went on about the Chung Yuan Christian University’s commencement of Bachelor Program in Design for Indigenous Students. The courses include indigenous culture and social design, media art and contextual space and symbiotic environment. Tribal teaching was also conducted. By developing habits and practicing repeatedly, the body naturally memorized. The courses adopted co-teaching support and mixed-level teaching. The presenter also led the students into the tribe, hoping that the students could have the opportunity to return to the tribe upon graduation. Indigenous students are relatively economically disadvantaged. Hence, in addition to imparting knowledge, the school has also formulated guidelines to take care of students in daily life, giving emphasis to recruiting students with the "willingness to learn," "consideration for others" and "teamwork spirit".
Next, Ms. Yeh Jiuan-reng, spoke on "Insights into Folk Music and Culture Leading to National Prosperity". First, the speaker said "culture leading to national prosperity" should be directed towards the positive force that enriches the value and connotation of people’s daily lives, building a circular society, economy and environment. In the forward-looking infrastructure plan, Taiwan’s music yearbook editing plan is an important research basis, because the yearbook is an annual and systematic collection of continuously published informational and literature books, with relatively complete information and authoritative and time-based contents. The plan survey records year-round music events in Taiwan. The observation aspects include exhibition events, ceremonial events, promotion education, traditional customary events, international and cross-strait exchanges, research and publication and cultural policies. The presenter also played live relevant exhibition music that with the melodious or majestic music, the participants felt as if they were personally on the scene.
After the speech, Secretary General Huang Chin-ying presented a gift to the speakers on behalf of the foundation, and played a brainstorm game. Then, attendees expressed and exchanged their opinions and views during the piggy hour. The January Archilife Public Policy Communion ended smoothly.
