Theme Ideas

  • Energy saving and carbon reduction start from me

Do you know what is climate change? Climate change refers to changes in the natural environment, such as severe temperature differences, melting glaciers, melting of permafrost, death of coral reefs, rising sea levels, changes in ecosystems, and increased frequency of floods and droughts.  These dramatic changes usually result from human behavior. In our daily life, energy is consumed through numerous mediums , such as electricity, transportation, etc.  Carbon emission is increased while we are using energy, which is detrimental to climate change! We can contribute to protecting the planet through reducing energy usage, low-carbon life, and protecting the environment. Think about what we can do together to achieve an energy-saving and low carbon emission living!

  • I want a better future

Most of our current energy consumption came from burning coals and fossil fuels, and we must know that significant pollution arises throughout the process from mining to emission of carbon! In addition to worsening of air quality, our health is affected and the impact of climate change exacerbates. Nevertheless, are you aware that cleaner energy such as solar energy, wind energy, hydropower are developing. If these energy sources are popularized in the future, it will significantly reduce carbon emissions and bring us a better environment!

About climate change

What is UN Sustainable Development Goals ?

This year's theme this year's event is in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 17: "Climate Action", with the theme "Let’s GO! Energy Detective", guiding students to conceptualize the abstract climate change concept, but what is " United Nations Sustainable Development Goals"?

In September 2015, countries around the world adopted the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda at the UN meeting, which covered 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which came into effect on January 1, 2016. These new goals apply to all countries, so over the next 15 years, countries will work to eliminate all forms of poverty, achieve equality and address climate change, while ensuring that no problems are missed.

The Sustainable Development Goals are built on the results of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and aim to eliminate all forms of poverty. And based on the original sustainable development criteria "to meet contemporary needs, while not compromising the development of future generations to meet their needs" to complete the task. The new goal also calls for concerted action by all countries, including poor, rich and middle-income countries, to promote prosperity and protect the planet.

The Sustainable Development Goals towards the 2030 Agenda integrates the five major frameworks of social, economic and environmental, and proposes five new elements, emphasizing the interrelationship of goal integration, hoping to fight poverty while implementing economic growth, education, health, and Social needs such as social protection and employment opportunities, and correspond to the face of climate action and environmental protection.
