Theme: Renewal

"Renewal" as the theme for the first TED×FDIS event, is inspired by the famous saying from The Great Learning: “If you can one day renew yourself, do so from day to day. Let there be daily renewal.” This quote emphasizes the importance of continuous learning and self-renewal. In today's context, this idea threads through the fabric of our students' journey, intertwining their moments, dreams, and triumphs.
The theme of "Renewal" is also deeply connected with the name and motto of Fudan University, which originates from ancient Chinese literature the Book of Documents (《尚书》): " Itinerant as the twilight, the sun glows and the moon luminesce (日月光华,旦复旦兮)". Therefore, “Fudan” refers to the brilliance of the sun and the moon, symbolizing brightness and splendor. FDIS upholds the spirit of Fudan, hence the choice of this theme not only carries forward historical and cultural legacies but also reflects the aspiration towards the bright future and hope of our students.
"Renewal" encourages students to embrace change and continuously learn and explore new knowledge and skills. This mindset not only enables them to adapt to rapidly changing societal environments but also fosters innovative thinking and problem-solving abilities.
