6. [You are a person from the earth, not an outsider – poverty never ends] (Lyw Liu Yaowei Youth International Volunteer Foundation)

Event URL: reurl.cc/vWnDQk

Time: July 26 (Tuesday) 19:30-21:00​
Theme: The theme of this lecture will revolve around the status quo of sustainable development in “Africa”. According to a United Nations report, in 2021 Africa will have 490 million poor people, accounting for 36% of Africa’s overall population. While African countries are facing the “poverty” dilemma, they also need to consider the challenges of environmental and social development! However, the challenges faced by African countries today are different from those in the past. Affected by the lack of information flow, many young people in our country’s imagination of Africa is still limited by stereotypes. Therefore, innovative volunteer actions are difficult to break through.
Interlocutor:

After joining the “Future Internet Alliance” this year, how will these international agendas affect the global Internet development and my country’s Internet governance? This forum will invite expert representatives from different stakeholders to discuss the new geopolitical situation of network governance.

Event URL: fb.me/e/2EzTMeQVv

Time: July 30 (Sat) 20:00-22:00​
Theme: We have all heard of the Second World War, we all know the two figures of Hitler and Stalin, and we have heard of the atrocities of the Nazis and the Soviet Union to some extent. However, for those of us who grew up in Taiwan, we used to look at this history from the perspective of Western European countries such as Britain, France and Germany, or pay more attention to the eight-year war of resistance against Japan and the Pacific War that were relatively close. In this lecture, I hope that through the book “Blood Land”, I can understand the perspective of Eastern Europe, which is relatively unfamiliar to the local area.
Speaker: Hung Shihan likes to read war history, especially how war and society interacted. After graduating from the Department of History at National Taiwan University, he went to the University of Edinburgh to study World War II in Europe. Currently working at Acropolis Publishing, his editorial masterpieces include “Scarlet Land”, “China’s Westward Expedition” and “The Dictator’s Chef”.

Event URL: fb.me/e/3AQvfRG6W

Time: July 29 (Fri) 19:00-21:00​
Topic: What do you think of when you think of social movements? Saying your voice directly on the street, practicing freedom of speech with physical actions, is often the most simple civil society image, no matter how the times evolve, new methods and new opportunities are introduced, the existence of grassroots space is a sound democratic social development and reform foundation, but do you know what these participants are thinking? Curious about the rights written in the eight hundred serious laws and conventions for the protesters, what meaning does it have in the real life of the protesters? This lecture invites three generations of representatives who have experienced many battles in different social movement fields, to torture their inner universe with struggle problems​
