Description

Taiwan Alumni Association of Toronto, launched at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at the University of Toronto in 2017, is the largest student association dedicated to the studies of Taiwan and global Asia in Canada. We bring together alumni, students, researchers, and public interested in a wide range of issues related to Taiwan. This year, we hope to bring the focus of our end of the year annual event with a panel discussion on the topic of climate change. We invite four experts from diverse backgrounds to share their thoughts and views on climate change, and its challenges and opportunities for Taiwan and Canada.
