“Now I realize that participating in politics is not just about shouting and yelling. It can also be done in such a delicate and gentle manner,” the student said.

In a concerted effort to further expand the documentary tour, a number of Taiwan-based foundations — including Laiho Cultural Foundation and Civil and Law-Related Education Foundation — launched a selection campaign on Wednesday last week that invited Taiwanese educators to brainstorm on ways to incorporate the documentary into school curricula.

The campaign, which will run through Dec. 29, is scheduled to select 100 proposals on Feb. 28 next year and award the winners a public presentation edition of the documentary.
