2015 Youth Am­bas­sadors from Re­pub­lic of China (Tai­wan) for NCC Show

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The 2015 Youth Am­bas­sadors del­e­ga­tion from the Re­pub­lic of China (Tai­wan) is sched­uled to visit Saint Lu­cia from 5th to 9th Septem­ber, 2015. The twen­tymem­ber del­e­ga­tion in­cludes 16 col­lege stu­dents from mu­sic, danc­ing, per­form­ing arts, and other fields plus one pro­fes­sor from per­form­ing arts, and is led by Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Mr. Chen Bor-Show of Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs of the Re­pub­lic of China (Tai­wan).

The 16 col­lege stu­dents were se­lected fol­low­ing a com­pre­hen­sive process and have un­der­gone rig­or­ous train­ing. Each mem­ber is hon­oured to serve as a Youth Am­bas­sador and con­fi­dent that he or she will make mean­ing­ful con­tri­bu­tions to in­ter­na­tional youth cul­tural ex­changes.

The stu­dents will con­duct a stage per­for­mance that com­bines dance, mu­sic, and Man­darin lan­guage themes, in or­der to in­tro­duce Tai­wan to St. Lu­cian peo­ple. The per­for­mance, en­ti­tled En­er­getic New Tai­wan, is di­vided into 12 acts and fo­cuses on six main as­pects: nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment, LO­HAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sus­tain­abil­ity), cul­tural her­itage, cui­sine, cul­tural cre­ativ­ity, and warmth. It is sched­uled to take place at the Na­tional Cul­tural Cen­tre from 7 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. on 7th Septem­ber, 2015. The per­for­mance is open to public.

Dur­ing the visit, the del­e­ga­tion will also meet with gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials and stu­dents of Sir Arthur Lewis Com­mu­nity Col­lege in the theme of cul­tural ex­change of two coun­tries.

The Re­pub­lic of China (Tai­wan) has con­ducted the In­ter­na­tional Youth Am­bas­sadors Ex­change Pro­gramme since 2009. Based on the ex­pe­ri­ences and re­sults of the over­seas trips made by Youth Am­bas­sadors over the past six years, the pro­gramme this year has been de­signed to en­sure con­tin­ued in­no­va­tion, while also re­tain­ing suc­cess­ful el­e­ments of pre­vi­ous years. This pro­gramme, which al­lows tal­ented Tai­wanese youth to par­tic­i­pate in in­ter­na­tional af­fairs and broaden their hori­zons, has in­creased un­der­stand­ing of Tai­wan's de­vel­op­ment among var­i­ous sec­tors of the host coun­tries. In ad­di­tion, through a wide ar­ray of ex­changes and in­ter­ac­tions, the Youth Am­bas­sadors have demon­strated Tai­wan's im­por­tant role on the in­ter­na­tional stage as a provider of hu­man­i­tar­ian aid, pro­moter of cul­tural ex­changes, and stan­dard bearer of Chi­nese cul­ture.

To fur­ther en­hance the out­come of the pro­gramme, the theme for the 2015 del­e­ga­tion is “Youth from Tai­wan, Com­pas­sion for All.” The goal is to not only high­light the vi­tal­ity and kind­ness of Tai­wanese youth, but also re­it­er­ate their com­mit­ment to is­sues of global con­cern such as hu­man­i­tar­ian aid and sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment.
