October: International Forum on Taichungology Register Starts Online July 11

October 6 & 7 at Tunghai University, the International Forum on Taichungology by Taichung City Government invites Taiwanese and international experts, scholars, local civic organizations to not only focus on Taichung’s features, this year “Identify Taichung”, creative “Line” stickers by senior & junior high school students and artwork by 1-6 graders are all engraving the features of Taichung. Forum opens for numbered registration since 7/11.

Themed “Discovery” last year, the Forum explored, through Anthroposophical point of view, and defined the development of Taichungology, directing the conversation between the City and the world. This year, the Forum is established over three aspects: “Fusion”, “Connection”, and “Co-Prosperity”, with “Identify” being the centerpiece. The discussion pans out on 6 topics, looking for further local uniqueness. The 6 topics are: “the Look of Taichung - the mountains, sea and hills: Ecology of Nature”, “the Look of the City - Flowing Space: Urban planning and the look of the city”, “the continuation of past and future - extension and changes: industry innovation & renovation”, “Tour in Taichung - Taste of Life: Dining culture development and local specialties”, “Gong Hao - Co-prosperity: Living-friendly, fusion, co-prosperity”, “Culture Exploration - Public Living Culture: Literature, history and belief”.

To encourage public participation, says RDEC, this year the painting contest and “Line” App sticker package contest invite 1-12 graders to join the Forum and show the world the beauty of Taichung. The contest starts today until 9/5, with the result announced on official website.
