Warm Greetings!

Director General, Mr. Tony W.T Lin from the Ministry of Education has offered support for the 4th University Scholars Leadership Symposium

2013 as the most worthy project which will help to further the education of young Taiwanese. Attached is the letter from Mr. Lin.

Humanitarian Affairs United Kingdom would like to invite Outstanding Youth Leaders from your university to participate in the 4th

University Scholars Leadership Symposium in Manila, Philippines from August 1 to 7, 2013. The Symposium is endorsed by the United

Nations Department of Social Affairs and United Nations Youth Unit in New York.

This annual program for leadership in social change is specially designed to provide the next generation leaders an understanding of key

sustainable development challenges, and to motivate them to realize their potential as agents of change through challenging training with diverse

international peers and inspiring interactions with experienced humanitarian leaders.

UNESCO and Humanitarian Affairs are giving out prize money of USD 2,000 to winning outreach projects either to individual or team under

our new segment, Voice for Social Change. All the projects are to focus on the United Nations’ eight Millennium Development Goals.

Humanitarian Affairs believes in the holistic development of global minded citizens, and this symposium would certainly be a great learning

opportunity for your students not only in terms of personal development, but more importantly, in reaching out to communities in need.

For more information on the event, please view the Official Symposium's website at www.universityscholars.org.uk

第四屆世界大學生領導者研討會,邀請全世界大學青年領袖參加。
此次研討會榮獲聯合國總部及教育部的鼎力支持,與會的青年領袖有機會獲得我方合作單位--聯合國教科
文組織2000美元之夢想啟動金,為的是提供那些期許將夢想藍圖轉化成實際行動的青年一筆資金,用自己獨特
的方式回饋社會。
為響應聯合國從2000年來啟動的千年發展目標,透過大家的同心協力,於2015年以前削減貧困、飢餓和疾

世界大學生領導者研討會舉辦三屆以來,皆以此前瞻之計畫為宗旨,提供大學生一個經驗交流,孕育未來
新一代青年領袖的平台,在此殿堂中不僅期望學生們發揮「人飢己飢、人溺己溺」之人道精神,體現對社會中
不同文化背景下的人種尊重、仁愛及平等的理念外,也能在幫助他人的同時,習得如何成為一位具有影響力的
領袖、創立社會企業等且將此信念發揚至世界的每個角落。
菲律賓在很多人心目中是一旅遊勝地,此地卻只是富人的天堂,更多的是大家看不到生活在貧困中的底層
人群。世界大學生領導者研討會將帶領與會者深入了解公共事務領域的問題,帶領你看到不一樣的菲律賓,用
真誠的視野去感受且思考這個世界、思考人生的價值。
