Project Introduction COoL Conference
is the abbreviation of Creativity Oops Leadership Conference. Originally, AIESEC NTU carried out this educational project in order to develop the leadership of students in Taiwan. However,
the whole project nowadays isn’t only the conference but also has to do with teaching children in primary school. The whole project can be separated into two parts:
(1) Daily Education Trainees will work with English teacher in elementary schools. With the aim of increasing children’s English level and broadening their horizons, you can design creative English-learning activities, games or workshops based on school’s direction. Further more, you can be a storyteller to share your own growing story, experience and culture to lovely children. To be mentioned, this part can last for 5 or 6 weeks depending on your arrival and terminate at the end of the semester. As a saying goes, “Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.” With your love, enthusiasm and patience, we believe we can provide students a door to the unknown, create pictures of the world, and allow adventure never dared. This little fire then will grow and one day bring back more positive influence and energy to the world!
(2) COoL Conference Trainees will cooperate with team members to hold the COoL Conference for high school students. You will have some pre-meetings beforehand, designing and delivering related sessions during conference. The topic of the conference can be global issues happening recently. We would like to provoke students to think about these issues and their creativity. For example, the topics that were used previously were “Dream x
Change”, “Creativity” and “Step Out & Dream Loud”.
By interacting with people from different backgrounds, students will get proficiency in foreign languages, and get in touch with the globe. They should hopefully learn teamwork, think independently and care about our society actively. This year, we are going to arrange the 8th COoL Conference. We expect and welcome every
passionate youth to join us!!!

Sharing from Keith Yuji Hi, my name is Keith Yuji, I am from Brazil but my grandparents came from Japan. I am studying international relations at Sao Paulo. I had the chance to know AIESEC when I was in the 2nd semester of the university and I tried to get in. Then after one year and 5 months working at AIESEC I choose to start the process to go to the AIESEC volunteer exchange program. When I was at Brazil I doesn’t have any idea what to expect from Taiwan, but then I talked with some trainees that made the exchange here they only told me good things about here. And when I arrived I could realize that they are telling only the truth. The first thing that I could realize is that everyone here is very friendly.
Every time that I needed help even if the person couldn’t speak in English they tried to help or even find someone that can. In the first day here, I get lost in the road at the mountains at 5AM with only the address of the school, then one guy that was walking stopped and I showed the address then instead of only give me the directions he took me to the school with his car. Here at school everyone is very friendly and always helping us (me and Chris, the Australian exchange participant) to have a good experience here. Actually I don’t have one host family because I am living in the school dorm but I feel like I have many host family fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters.
I am loving my experience here in Taiwan, I didn’t have any kind of problem that I or the people from AIESEC NTU couldn’t help me to solve. But you know? In that kind of experience it have some types of moment that made it worth, one of them are the moments that you have problems and you have to try to solve them by yourself. Another one is when you see the results of six weeks of effort
Taiwan Introduction The history of Taiwan can be traced back to 400 years ago. Before this era, aboriginal people lived on this Island. In the 17th century, people started moving from China to Taiwan and groups of emigrants come to here continuously since then. Also, it is
ruled by Japan for 50 years due to the WWI.These historical events made Taiwan a multicultural society. Though people often mistake Taiwanese culture as Chinese culture, they are totally different. Ranging from Mountain
Ali’s splendid sunrise, Taroko
National Park’s magnificent marble terrain, Kenting’s charming coast, to the beautiful view seen from Taipei 101, Taiwan fascinates tourists worldwide every year through nature and civilization.

Upcoming festival u
The Dragon Boat Festival, also called Double Fifth Festival, is celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth moon of the lunar calendar.
Chu Yuan, a good and respected man, sorrowfully threw himself into the Mi Lo River because of the misdeeds of jealousy that let to the emperor’s mistrust. However, due to their admiration for Chu Yuan, the local people living adjacent to the Mi Lo River rushed into their boats to search for him while throwing rice into the waters to appease the river dragons. Although they were unable to find Chu Yuan, their efforts are still commemorated today during the Dragon Boat Festival. This turned out to be the costume of eating rice dumplings and holding dragon boat races. The celebration is also a time for protection from evil and disease for the rest of the year.
It is done so by different practices such as hanging healthy herbs on the front door, drinking nutritious concoctions, and displaying portraits of evil's nemesis. Moreover, if one manages to stand an egg on it's end at exactly 12:00 noon, the following year will be a lucky one. Please look forward to one of the most important festivals in Taiwan when you visit us in May! ă€€ă€€
