The July Archilife Public Policy Communion of 2015 was held on July 28, 2015. After a series of relaxing and fun activities, Secretary General Huang Chin-ying made the following announcement, "At this moment, many uncertain crises exists in our living environment. Targeting this situation, Tai Hsueh System developed by Archlife expects all its members to gain sufficient intelligence to solve related problems and teach the next generation what you have learned. In addition, climate changes brought about humanitarian and societal changes, and even caused mental discomforts. Therefore, the NT Special Team will continue to conduct researches on related issues and expect to excavate problem-solving solutions from the research reports and promote the idea of Archlife internationally. We encourage everyone to develop their foreign language abilities, converge themselves in order to simplify the connection web with the outer world, and concentrate their strength on facing future challenges."
Next on the schedule was the keynote speech. First, Mr. Chiang Yi-chang gave a presentation on "2015 Mid-Year Environmental Control Special Team Meeting Implementation Report". The speaker first explained that besides conducting discussions on the 2014 Adaptation Strategy to Climate Change policy and further implementation progresses, the special team also compared it with the implementation situations of Action Plan for Sustainable Development of 2013 and 2014. After deliberation, team members believe that indigenous climate change adaptation technology should be established as soon as possible, and a real trans-department integrated persistent practice should exist. When facing compounded problems such as harsh international competition and climate change in the future, the government should innovate its institutional operations. Finally, the speaker reminded that everyone's hard works are needed when facing the reduction and adjustment of sustainable development and climate change.
Next, Miss Su Mei-ju, a member of the Public Policy Committee, spoke on "The Flavor of Hometown in the Corner—Tradition Bamboo on Yilan Plain". The speaker used many pictures to introduce the traditional bamboo surroundings. Many places names are also related with bamboo surroundings. Besides the natural ability of covering strong wind and rain, bamboo surroundings can also serve as self-defense mechanisms for separated farmhouses, as borderlines of real rights and as status symbols. Then the speaker introduced the composing elements and the forms of bamboo surroundings, and further talked about the disappearing of traditional bamboo surroundings and farmhouses under the shrinking of agricultural economy and the boom of real estate businesses, in which a new plain view has appeared. Under the implementation of the census project, she hopes that legal regulations in the future can register, protect and transform the features of bamboo surrounding landscapes.
After the speech, Secretary General Huang Chin-ying presented a gift to the speakers on behalf of the foundation. Then, attendees expressed and exchanged their opinions and views during the piggy hour. The July Archilife Public Policy Communion ended smoothly.
