Introduction:
In May 2021,during the preparations for the summit, Taiwan’s COVID-19 situation intensified, affecting various aspects of society and this prompted us to reevaluate the focus of the summit. Over the past year, many countries have paid a heavy price during the pandemic. Each time they attempt to lift restrictions, new variants of the virus introduce uncertainties.With insufficient vaccine production and significantly lagging vaccination rates, countries in the Asia-Pacific region face serious challenges. People started to realize that rather than hoping to return to the pre-pandemic normalcy, we should actively seek to coexist with the virus in the foreseeable future, even for the next several years or decades, and rebuild a "healthy" and "robust" "new normal." Therefore, the theme of the 2022 summit is officially "Normal Asia."

Building a new normal in the face of the pandemic's impact naturally implies a focus on improving existing social systems with a core emphasis on "people." However, the "environment" is equally crucial for human survival. Reassessing the relationship between "environment" and "people" and contributing to the sustainable development of all humanity while creating a healthy and sustainable environment to address the risks of a changing climate have become even more important. Consequently, under the theme of "Normal Asia," two major aspects have been developed to focus and implement the topics:

1. The practice of Net-Zero Carbon Emissions and Sustainable Environment through Social Innovation:
To keep global warming below the critical threshold of 1.5°C, thus avoiding irreversible climate change leading to natural disasters, there is a global consensus to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Conserving forests and oceans to maintain environmental sustainability is essential for enhancing disaster resilience in human living environments. We attempt to think about this from a social innovation perspective, reflecting on existing business models and production methods to achieve harmony between people and the environment, and reduce the impact and harm caused by natural disasters. In addition to discussing relevant topics, this year's summit will also integrate the concept of "net-zero carbon emissions" into the overall design of the event, opening a green forum in a more environmentally friendly manner that innovates and deviates from the previous models, with the hope of setting a good example and creating an event model. 

2. Response to the Impact of the Pandemic through Social Innovation:
With the global spread of the pandemic, not only have preexisting social problems been exacerbated, but new social issues have also emerged.In response to the pandemic's impact, we hope to introduce the mindset of social innovation to explore solutions to various problems. While addressing the impact of the pandemic, we also hope to help each member of society become more responsible producers in terms of the environment and labor, ultimately achieving harmony between individuals.

As described under the theme of "Normal Asia," the summit's structure is detailed as follows. Within the two major aspects mentioned above, we will establish specialized discussions and develop several actionable plans that are aligned with SDGs objectives and are feasible, locally relevant, and forward-looking. We hope that attendees will take these new experiences and ways of thinking back to their cities or areas of influence to further transform and implement them.

  3. 簡介:

2021年5⽉,正值峰會籌備之際,台灣疫情升溫,廣泛衝擊社會各個層⾯,使我們對峰會主軸產⽣了新的思考。⼀年多以來,許多國家在疫情中付出慘烈代價,每逢解封᯿啟之際,變種病毒卻⼜投下變數,在疫苗產能不⾜、接種率⼤幅落後的情況之下,亞太地區國家無不⾯臨嚴峻考驗。⽽⼈們也開始意識到,與其盼望回到病毒尚未來襲之前的正常⽣活,我們要積極尋求的,應該是如何在可⾒的未來數年、甚⾄是數⼗年間與其和平共存,重建⼀種「健康」且「健全」的「新常態」。緣此,2022年峰會主軸正式定為——「重健」亞洲。在疫情衝擊下᯿建新常態當然意味著需要以「⼈」為核⼼,來改善既存社會體系的問題,然⽽「環境」更是⼈類⽣存所仰賴,重新審視「環境」與「⼈」之間的關係,如何為全⼈類的永續發展付出⼼⼒,並打造健康且永續的環境,以因應氣候變遷下的風險社會,便更顯重要。是以,「᯿健亞洲」主軸之下開展出以下兩⼤⾯向,使議題能夠聚焦並獲得實踐。

一、淨零碳排與永續環境於社會創新下的實踐

為守住地球氣溫升溫臨界值1.5℃,以避免無可挽回的氣候變遷致使天災四起,全球已有2050年達成淨零碳排的共識,⽽保育⼭林、海洋以維繫環境永續,亦是為⼈類⽣活場域增強防災韌性所必需。我們嘗試以社會創新的視⾓,審思現有的商業模式與⽣產⽅式,企圖達成⼈與環境之間的和諧,降低⾃然災害對社會造成的衝擊與傷害。繼⽽在相關議題的探討外,本屆峰會亦將由⾃⾝做起,把「淨零碳排」概念融入活動整體的設計規劃當中,以不同於以往的創新模式開啟⼀場友善環境的綠⾊論壇,希望發揮良好帶頭作⽤,形塑活動典範。

二、疫情衝擊於社會創新下的應對

全球疫情蔓延下,除了既存社會問題遭到放⼤,新的社會問題也隨之發⽣。⾯對疫情衝擊,我們希望導入社會創新的思維,共同探尋諸多問題的解⽅,在應對疫情衝擊的同時,亦期許幫助每⼀個社會成員成為對環境與勞動⼒更負責的⽣產者,達到⼈與⼈之間的和諧。

以下,以「重健亞洲」為主軸,具體描述峰會架構。我們在上述兩⼤⾯向的思考中,建立專題討論,並擬定符合SDGs⽬標且具可⾏性、在地性與未來發展性的數個⾏動⽅案。期許與會者們能將新的經驗與思考⽅式帶回⾃⼰的城市或所致⼒的場域,進⼀步改造或實踐。
