GASE x CommonWealth Magazine【U20 International Youth Forum】Plastic and Waste Reduction Workshop

【U20 International Youth Forum-Training Workshop】
The workshop focuses on the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is planned into these three topics: Climate Change, Plastic and Waste Reduction, and Sustainable Energy. Through MOST GASE’s corporate visits and close interactions with the corporate instructors and mentors, we hope the participants can exchange ideas and sharpen their insights. Furthermore, through the Youth Forum, we hope to create a platform for intergenerational exchange and spark new solutions for the future of sustainability.

To align with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), MOST GASE cordially invited Ms. Linda Wang, Sustainability Manager, IKEA North Asia (Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau) at IKEA Group to lead the workshop and corporate visit at IKEA Taoyuan Qingpu store. IKEA Qingpu store has successfully implemented various initiatives on green actions and sustainable development; therefore, the visit provided a unique opportunity for both participants and instructors to exchange ideas on plastic and waste reduction issues. At the same time, we were honored to invite Ms. Shalom Chen, Director of Corporate Communications, Sustainability & Public Affairs of L'Oreal, to share the concept of sustainability and how corporations around the world can help solve the global challenge.
During the afternoon session, MOST GASE invited Mr. Justin Chou, Creative Director of JUST IN XX, and Mr. Jason Huang, the co-founder of RE-THINK, to share their academic and professional experiences with the participants. The goal of the workshop seeks to motivate future generation to raise their awareness of the global environmental issues; hence, through the first-hand interactions with experienced instructors, the participants could gain knowledge and inspirations to take concrete steps on future sustainable developments.
