How do you describe “climate change,” “sustainable development,” “renewable energy,” and “alternative energy development” in the plans/ courses? Is there any conflict on how to explain questions? From which views do you introduce these questions, local, area, or global view?

The Environmental Education Act depicts several ways to conduct the courses/ plans, such as environmental protection-related courses, lectures, discussions, Internet learning, experiences, experiment (learning), outdoor learning, visitations, film appreciation, hands-on work and other related activity.

We not only convey the idea of eco-education by conducting courses but also by film appreciation, visitations, seminars or any other various methods to conduct the eco-education education. The definition of “environment” is broad and wide, including climate change, sustainable development, and even development or use of renewable energy you mentioned before; in addition, it also includes issues of humanities, history, and heritages. Those subjects who are obligated to report (such as government agencies, state-run enterprises and institutions, school districts) may select the issues they are interested in to conduct their plans/ courses. We hope environmental ethics and social justice may be brought to every employee and student by these lively and multidimensional courses/ plans/ methods.

As for how to introduce the eco-issues and how to conduct the activities to students, there is no clear and directive regulation in order to emphasize the multidimensional courses. But both the Ministry of Education and we encourage conducting eco-education by outdoor learning and visitations, which may impress learners through experiences, information that receptionist conveyed, and relevant teaching materials by the way of getting close to nature and human sceneries/ locations, and may strengthen learners’ emotion and care to our land and environment, which is a good way in learning environment. We also suggest planners select locations with educational value when planning the outdoor learning and visitation activities.
