About this event

We want to encourage students to do something to improve the society no matter kind of area they are belonged. We invite three NTNU alumni to share their project and what kind of change they've brought. These series talks are expected to inspire those ordinary students to understand that even you just a student that you might not do something big, but a small thing still can bring a change.

Confirmed Speakers

  • will kao
    He is a cross-nation entrepreneur. last summer vacation he had a opportunity to cooperate with a Cambodia monk to build a local school to promote change thinking. As the ex AISEC vice president, he had enough tools and knowledge of knowing problem solving. then He tried to use what he knew to lead Cambodia children to think how to change their own community. However, In order to find a stable finance source to support his program he started up a company to recycle local abandoned cement bag, and redesign it, and finally sold to Taiwan. The all process were handmade by local jobless women. He's convinced that this is a structure change of production line of a product. In this process the local community is not only promoted job opportunity but his school can still be running.
  • Yi Lin
    She was a student studying in biology in National Taiwan Normal University. While she was teaching ecology in a teacher internship program, She found what she taught was not convincing since she didn't do anything about environment protection written in the textbook. therefore, she started up a program for cleaning beach.She wanted to do implement what she believe is right and good to the environment. from last year to this year at least 2000 people had participated in. till now they'd visited over 10 beaches. during this incredible journey. She figured out that you must use your action to convince other what they don't believe or doubt.
