About this event

【About the theme】

The spirit of child, a kind of humanistic spirit with eternal value, which represents the new force of thinking, exploration and creation ,should become a lasting life style in one’s life rather than be in only a period time of life.

The spirit of child, which we see as a new starting point,encourages us to reflect what we have accepted and have taken for granted.

What we hope ,is that people can understand how important the critical thinking is.

What we know ,is that it takes time for people to change.

What we can do, is that inspire people to ask questions again and keep critical thinking .

We believe that , finding critical thinking again and enhancing our cognitive capacities can bring more possibility and diversity to our life.
