Due to cultural differences between East and West, many Westerners refused to wear masks during COVID-19. The purpose of this project is to study how might apply technical, creative, and social innovation so that wearing masks becomes more acceptable across cultures.

At the same time, application technology and creative innovation will use social media accounts as a starting point, invent handles and tags, and publish public welfare posters through social media. Ensure that there are sufficient sources of supply for disposable medical masks, and design masks that have both functionality and stylish, make masks become a fashionable single product, so that more people will accept mask culture.

The aim of this project is to separate the opinions of Westerners and Western racist behavior. Through corporate responsibility and social innovation, wearing masks is more easily accepted in the culture.
