BOE of Kaohsiung City Bureau



Speech from Chairman of NDYS 2006 Conference

   The main goal that Bureau Of Education of Kaohsiung, to launch education of creativity, initiates the project “Though miles apart, we are the world“, is through the global interaction to characterize Kaohsiung harbor culture, in hopes of realizing the final aim “Globalization of Taiwan”, instilling in teachers and students the broad concept of internalization. and fulfilling the ideal state that creativity teaching has no boundary.    

    It is our great honor that Kaohsiung City can host the PBL activity of iEARN, Natural Disaster Youth Summit (NDYS) 2006. We sincerely extend 

 our warm hands to welcome teachers and students from many counties of Taiwan, and from 
such foreign countries as Japan, Malaysia, Iran, and Trinidad to participate in this collaborative 

     Unavoidable are natural disasters, like the earthquake 1997 in Japan, 1999 in Taiwan, 2003
 in Bam, Iran, the tsunami 2004 in South Asia and the hurricane 2005 in the Caribbean Sea, in 
all of which the tortured residents have severely suffered the deplorable situation of “deprivation 
of home and household”. However, it is through worldwide cooperation and mutual concern,
and under the noble humane spirit of “sharing bliss and adversity together” that the victims can 
rebuild their homes.

     I am convinced that, under the devoted instructions of teachers, students will find it 
quite a valuable experience to understand the property of natural disasters, to survey the 
potentially dangerous areas of the community, to do some researches on preventive measures, 
and to work out  the practicable ways of relieving victims of disasters.

     We advocate in the conference the theme “global vision, future hope”, hoping that we can 
unite the youth around the globe to create a unique future for the world. Prior to the conference, 
I think, you have made some online discussion over the topic through the Internet, and I hope 
that you all can genuinely reach the realm that creativity teaching has no boundary. Also, it is 
my sincere expectation that the collaborative learning among international students can 
be continuously proceeding.

     With great sincerity I welcome all of you to Kaohsiung, a city that is full of beauty, warmth 
and vitality.

I wish the NDYS Conference to be a great success.
