Share Event

Strait Talk is a non-partisan dialogue workshop that empowers young people from both sides of the Taiwan Strait to collaborate in transforming the Taiwan Strait conflict. It is the world’s first initiative that enables direct political dialogue between youth from both sides of the Taiwan Strait with the goal of moving toward peace and understanding.

In collaboration with Taiwan Studies at the University of Alberta, the CIUA is bringing Strait Talk to Canada! The symposium will be held in the Telus Center at the University of Alberta over the course of the last weekend in May (26-28). Along with the symposium, participants will get experience keynote talks with experts on tensions over Taiwan and be given opportunities to network informally with other participants and facilitators during lunches. Following the symposium, participants will be inducted into the alumni networks where they will join over 1000 former participants, many of whom are in prominent positions in countless lines of work. 

There will be three delegations consisting of 5 participants. Participants who self-identify with one of the following identities (Canadian, Taiwanese, and Chinese) should apply.

Applications remain open until spots are filled.
