2018 Be The Change Celebration in Taiwan

About BTC

Be The Change Celebration serves as the annual global conference of Design for Change (DFC), the global movement designed to give children an opportunity to express their own ideas for a be world and put them into action.

With its inspirational roots at The Riverside School, Ahmedabad, India, has gone viral and inspired hundreds of thousands of children, their teachers and parents from over 65 countries, to celebrate the fact that children are not helpless, that change is possible and that they can drive it.

To take this spirit of I CAN forward and spotlight these young “Superheroes” under one roof, DFC Taiwan will host the seventh annual global ‘Be The Change Celebration’ in 2018, after Spain, China, Mexico and India.

DFC participants from all across the globe will come together and share their inspiring stories of change. Compelling speeches and performances will retell the stories of childhood and courage. The sessions of children’s heroism will culminate into workshops conducted by the best design minds & educators in the world, emphasizing ideas of empathy leading to significant action.

It is our pleasure to invite you to be part of the Celebration! We are certain that you will find great inspiration in all the Superheroes talks and workshops. In addition, the event organizers, hosts and volunteers are all children from Taiwan. We look forward to meeting you at the celebration and sharing with you the I CAN spirit. See you on December 1st and 2nd, 2018 at the HePing Experimental Elementary School, Taipei, Taiwan!
