Statement of intent

It’s truly been a privilege for me to work with WDO and the Secretariat on the Board for the past two years.

I’m dedicated to improving the value of Taiwan as well as connect with the world through the power of design.

Here are 3 reasons I would like your support to rejoin the board members:

First, contribute my past experiences and achieve WDO’s vision and goals.

TDRI is one of the few organizations in the world that had hosted the IDA Congress and World Design Capital. Thus, we have unique experiences and resources to implement activities.

Second, improve communication between the members via WDC and other international events.

TDRI has signed MOUs with 52 design-related organizations all over the world, always looking to develop collaborative opportunities.

Lastly, set a great example for non-profit design organizations.

We strive to develop circular design and share our achievement in response to the United Nation’s SDGs.

With WDO, I have completed lots of great work during the term. Now, I am looking forward to creating more amazing friendships through design.

Thank you for your support, I am grateful to have this chance to serve WDO and our design community all over the world.
