The 2024 TEDxNCHU Annual Conference took place at National Chung Hsing University on May 4th. Themed “Being Humans: What is Humanity?” the event explored this question from three distinct perspectives: land, emotion, and technology. Drawing a total of 115 participants from both within and outside the campus, the event inspired attendees to contemplate the essence and values of humanity.

The concept of “Being Humans” stems from curiosity about the various generations of humanity. Yu-Pang Chang, the curator and a student enrolled in the Bachelor Program in Taiwan Humanities and Creativity, emphasized that humanity is constantly reshaping the world. Nevertheless, individuals often find themselves existing within the human realm without a comprehensive understanding of what it truly means to be human. The annual conference aims to provide a platform for the collective exploration of the question: What defines humanity?

The event featured six speakers who delivered brief presentations on campus. Among them were Jen-Tung Chiang, the founder of Touch Farmer; Meng-Jou Chi, a veterinarian at the WildOne Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center; Winnie, the author of Days of Depression with You: A Basic Guide to Depression for Patients and Caregivers, and an Instagram writer for Bits of Psychology; Yu-Ting Chiang, a YouTuber known as “I am Teacher Chiang;” Johnson Hsieh, the Founder & CEO of Chimes AI; and Chien-Yu Chen, the Director of InfoFrontier Law Firm. Each speaker shared their unique perspectives and insights.

The student response to this annual conference was overwhelmingly positive. Fuh-Jyh Jan, President of National Chung Hsing University, expressed his optimism that “Chung Hsing people” would discover their intrinsic value within the continuum of humanity and celebrate the diversity inherent in themselves and the world. This, he believed, would pave the way for a future rich with possibilities. Chin-Ying Yang, Dean of Student Affairs, urged students to approach self-exploration with openness, gain a better self-understanding, and embark confidently on their professional journeys.
