NCKU Students Collaborate with International Sustainability Organizations to Host " Zero Carbon Event"

Synergy Correlation

Students of NCKU have taken an innovative approach to net zero by organizing the "NCKU Sustainable and Tranquil Life Festival". They have calculated all carbon emissions from electricity consumption and generator fuel during the event, and by signing up for the personal action of "Vegan Dining for Carbon Reduction" and the circular economy model of canvas reuse, they have achieved an exemplary experiment of "net zero" in this event! In addition, they have collaborated with international sustainability organizations 350 Taiwan, SDSN Taiwan, and the Museum of World Religion to declare their support for the G7 Global Citizenship Initiative, in the hope that more sustainable actions will be implemented and spread in society!

The NCKU Sustainable Innovation Club hopes to break the traditional concept of "sustainability = environmental protection" by organizing the "NCKU Sustainable and Tranquil Life Festival" on May 20. Through a second-hand market, an independent bookstore, a "Tranquil Competition" and short speeches on sustainability, they hope to bring the public to a better understanding of how sustainability is practiced in their lives through a variety of activities and insights, and to connect the rich resources inside and outside of NCKU to invite the public to participate in experiencing a better future of sustainable living.

Assistant Vice President Ping-Sheng Wu, who attended the opening ceremony on behalf of President Meng-Ru Shen, said, "If I were to portray my own sustainability and relaxation, it would be to give myself and each other a proper space, and you and I would work together for our future."
 The event was organized by the students. In view of the fact that many disposable wastes were generated in the past events and a lot of carbon emissions were produced in the process, They launched an Initiative (今碳耗倡議) with two major demands: First, " Achieve Net Zero for the whole event". They will calculate the electricity consumption of the day and call on all participants to reduce carbon emissions by eating vegetables. The second is " Recycle all the event resources”, which is to recycle the large printed canvas into universal bags, so that the original one can be reborn.

Seven distinguished speakers were invited to the event, focusing on sustainable issues such as "local creativity, circular economy, and innovation education". The speakers include: Liang-Yi Chang, a visiting expert from the Office of Strategic Planning of NCKU and co-founder of SDSN Taiwan; Po Yuan Fong, an alumnus of NCKU and founder of Pocebo; Chong-Li Yeh, CEO of the Tainan Enterprises ; Yong-Qi Shen, PR and Marketing Director of SSICON; Chia-Chi Tsai, CEO of the Talent Field; Hsiang-Chin Chung, Academic Dean of Sustainable Talent Incubator(STi); and Li-Ping Yu, producer of "Our Island" on PTS Taiwan. Through sharing their own experiences, they brought more inspiration to the public on sustainability issues.

NCKU is the first university in Taiwan to incorporate the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into its campus development plan. This student-organized net-zero event, "NCKU Sustainable and Tranquil Life Festival," was held in the Future Venue of NCKU.

NCKU Sustainable and Tranquil Life Festival has achieved as many as six SDGs, and has also achieved education on sustainable development and global citizenship, promoting a deeper understanding of sustainable lifestyles among the public. What's more, NTU, NTNU, TMU, NTPU, and NCU students have provided slogans and posters in response, demonstrating that NCKU has created a new culture of sustainability on campus with students as the mainstay and teachers and students working together.
