Environmental Protection Administration National Environmental Education Conference announced that Hsinchu City is the first city in Taiwan that completed the environmental education declaration this year (completed on Jan. 23). The director of Hsinchu City Environmental Protection Bureau Jiang Shengren stated that environmental education is an important factor to develop the public's environmental protection concept. The Environmental Protection Bureau has been actively helping a total of 115 local schools and state-run enterprises to implement environmental education.

The Environmental Education Act (EEA) was executed on June 5 in 2011. Part one of the article 19 in EEA stated that Government agencies, state-run enterprises and institutions, school districts up to the junior high school level and nonprofit organizations receiving the government's subsidy fund exceeding fifty percent shall draft and finalize an environmental education plan on/before January 31 of each year, to promote environmental education, where all employees, faculty and study body shall participate over four hours of environmental education prior to December 31 each year, and are required to declare the current year's environmental education implementation results with the competent central government authorities via the internet declaration means (https://elearn.epa.gov.tw/Default.aspx) on/before January 31 of the following year.

Following by EEA, the expected number of the agencies and its corresponding attendance are 115 and 80,557 respectively. All agencies have to complete the declaration of environmental education between Nov. 1 and Jan. 31 of next year via the internet declaration. 115 of the agencies in Hsinchu City completed the declaration on Jan. 23 this year which is the first city in Taiwan who completed the declaration.

The Environmental Protection Bureau stated that some articles in EEA had gone through the third reading and were approved by Legislative Yuan. In order to avoid the situation of employees using environmental education as an excuse for travelling, the articles that were relevant to visiting purpose had been removed from EEA. Other purposes such as lessoning, speech, discussion, internet education, experience activity, experiment, field teaching, film viewing, etc. were kept in EEA. The agencies that are to complete the process within a prescribed deadline but fail to comply by the deadline are punishable by a penalty fine of over five thousand New Taiwan dollars and up to fifteen thousand New Taiwan dollars, and the authorized person or the individual in charge of environmental protection may also be ordered to receive an environmental seminar of over one hour and up to eight hours.
