?What is the “Resilient Cities Forum in Taoyuan”?​​The coronavirus pandemic has ground cities to a halt since 2020. How can cities strengthen cooperation in promoting sustainable development?  What are the steps that our civil society can take to keep up its efforts in promoting and protecting human rights?

The Taoyuan City Government and the Taiwan-Asia Exchange Foundation will co-organize "Resilient Cities Forum in Taoyuan" to strengthen the practices of "Sustainable Development Goals" established by the United Nations. This forum will serve as a dialogue platform,  highlighting how different cities implemented sustainable goals in the post-pandemic era, and strengthen collaboration between Taiwan and like-minded countries in developing resilient cities.
