Abstract: There are a total of 12 districts in Taipei City, Taiwan. Senior Active Learning Centers are established for the respective districts, and 6 of which are organized by Taipei Public Library. Among these establishments, the Senior Active Learning Demonstration Center of Daan has been promoting the Active Ageing Learning Market with reference to the spirit of the SDGs since 2022. With the civic participation via i-Voting and the philosophy of self-directed learning combined, it put the participants back in the driving seat for learning. The program was inspired by the idea of crowdfunding platform. First, the active senior readers propose their thoughts and wishes for courses. After discussions and voting, the courses that pass the threshold of second will then have resources matched by the Center for course opening. Also, participants are empowered as lecturers or teaching assistants to further give back to the society. The program not just promotes older workforce reutilization, drawing retired individuals to serve as lecturers or teaching assistants, but also keeps tabs on the post-curriculum development of participants and invites them to be the brand ambassadors to the Center following the concept of brand management, so as to attract more people to the community of lifelong learning.
