Collaboration in Local Governance
The city government, district offices, and the university are working together to converge local consensus through consultative meetings and workshops, helping students to access community stations for a better understanding of the local development, and thereby turning out solutions based on local needs. In conjunction with the placemaking project, the University assists townships in Kaohsiung and Pingtung in consolidating local characteristics and advantages and helps revitalize the places. The University has initiated the Cooperative Empowerment and Extension Service (CEES) program, pooling together CSR and USR resources to foster a sustainable social responsibility development.
As the National Development Council officially launches the “placemaking” policy, NSYSU has coordinated with all departments and institutes, as well as professional teams of the University, with Vice President I-Yu Huang acting as the convener, to plan and push for placemaking proposals in connection with various administrative districts of Kaohsiung and Pingtung.
