Hardware facilities with the concept of energy saving and carbon reduction
The Jiantanshan Environmental Education Center located at Jiantan Village, Zhongshan District, Taipei City, was once an abandoned kindergarten. In 2014, This structure was converted into a community activity center; combined with the concept of green building with recycling and reusing equipment, green walls and roofs, wind power, solar power generation systems, and rainwater storage systems were established.
Deepening the action with activities
The Jiantanshan Environmental Education Center has a long-term partnership with our team. Our team invited lecturers and prepared teaching materials to conduct environmental education activities at this venue. In 2017 and 2018, our team assisted in the design of the teaching and learning curriculum, trial teaching, effectiveness evaluation, certificate application planning, etc., then collected relevant information for certification.
In November 2017, our team invited lecturers to hold a “Jiantan Carbonventure”, and the lecturers prepared solar stoves that uses solar energy to cook food as a teaching material. This project promoted the understanding of renewable energy, energy saving, and solar power application to the public. In order to encourage the use of solar energy, this activity demonstrated the operation and principles of solar energy stoves, and a total of 39 people participated in the event.
In January 2018, our team designed and organized related courses on the theme of climate change, including “Hop on to Jiantan village”, “Global Warming Topsy-Turvy”, “Understanding Green Energy and Solar Furnaces”. In these events, games were designed to enhance the participant’s ability to use renewable energy through experiencing the survival dilemma of polar bears, setting up simple solar oven, and recognizing environmental labels.
In 2018, the Jiantanshan Environmental Education Center passed the environmental education facility certification and became the first community-based environmental education venue in Taipei. Our team also continued to work with the Jiantanshan Environmental Education Center to bring the environmental philosophy of sustainable development to the community.
