The video conference on November 4, 2020 was hosted by Secretary General Huang Chin-ying. The participants included: Mr. Wang Wen-an, Mr. Li Yen-yi, Ms. Chang Kuei-feng, Ms. Lin Yi-hsuan, Mr. Gao Chuan-chi, Ms. Lin Ju-yu, Mr. Hsiao Jui-lin, Mr. Tung Ssu-wei, and Mr. Lee Chuang-yuan who jointly attended the conference.
The main contents discussed at the conference on the day included: upgrading green buildings to practical cases in line with energy and environment design leadership certification standards, urban metabolism and the formulation of urban planning for sustainable consumption and production, as well as the design of a generational city and the analysis of sustainable community construction strategies and urban renewal polices and results in South Korea and China.
As the video conference on the day came to an end, Secretary General Huang Chin-ying said that symbiotic civilization covers symbiosis and digitalization. Symbiosis is the ARF’ strong suit, while digitalization remains relatively weaker. However, throughout the international conference held for three consecutive days, whether contacts before the conference, venue arrangement, video connection, screen cutting, etc, indicate the ARF’s considerable degree of digitalization capabilities. It is hoped that everyone will provide participation feedback on their conference participation, which shall serve as a reference for ARF’s subsequent improvement. The participants later proposed their personal opinions and conference participation feedback in terms of overall conference process arrangement, video system planning, enhancement of international universal language proficiency, research directions to be strengthened, links to the UN’s sustainable development goals, etc.
Before the conference ended, Secretary General Huang Chin-ying specially reminded the participants to note their overall fluency during speeches, especially useless auxiliary words that should be avoided, putting illustrations to good use, and reducing complex text narratives in order to guide the audience to grasp the topic. Additionally, the most important part of participating in international conferences is considerable language proficiency in order to clearly express research arguments and engage in more in-depth exchanges with international experts and scholars. Finally, Secretary General Huang Chin-ying thanked the participants for their involvement and invited them to take group photographs for remembrance. The BEYOND 2020 Conference came to a perfect close.
In the face of drastic changes in external environment, we have more profoundly come to realize the essentiality of symbiotic civilization construction. At such a crucial time, the ARF hopes its members will continue to improve their self-competency to contribute to society, actively take part in international conferences to promote the concept of symbiotic civilization, thereby laying the cornerstone of sustainable development for Taiwan and the human race.
