Community Environmental Education

Community Environmental Education 


Communities are inseparable from everyday life. As the essential unit of public life, they are also the unit on which public policies are promoted. By gathering the strengths of residents, community consensus, and a sense of identity, local environmental issues can be addressed. Through the participation and co-operation of community residents, a better quality of life and well-being of the residents can be achieved, and the concept of environmental protection and sustainable development can be realized.

The promotion of environmental education in the community can strengthen the autonomy of residents and public participation, and even stimulate the development of local industries and promote the local economy. Environmental education can also be an effective strategy for local resource protection and environmental management, and has a positive impact on the preservation of traditional culture and cohesiveness.

By learning and participating in environmental education, residents of the community can even become promoters. In addition to being the frontline of environmental protection, local communities can also become the site of environmental education with unique natural environment or local cultural characteristics. Communities are able to express the richness of life and gradually implement environmental education in society.
