The implementation duration of this project is from Oct 19, 2018, to Dec 31, 2019. The outcomes are summarized as follows:
To integrate relevant information on climate change and timely demonstrate implementation results, this project collects the necessary knowledge, scientific data, updates of greenhouse gases, and climate change information in Taiwan and other countries to provide essential details of climate change. This project presents essential information and the business and implementation results of different agencies as well as historical databases to provide a rich, lively, comprehensive, and accurate information platform. This platform is connected to other domestic and international information platforms. The Climate Change Information System and Cooler—Energy Saving and Carbon Reduction Platform are incorporated into the information management system to effectively compiles updated information, so that the collected knowledge and obtained results can be preserved and applied to different aspects, fulfilling the purpose of education and advocacy.
To effectively convey the knowledge and information on climate change, this project continues to follow conferences and activities in Taiwan and promote the visualization of knowledge. The objective of this project includes acquiring comprehensive knowledge of climate change as well as visualizing the adaptation measures taken by Taiwan. Climate change experts and scholars are invited to verify the information collected. In addition, the cartoon mascots, black and white bears, are incorporated in the platform to stimulate users’ interest and ameliorate information readability.
This project has established a system for conducting long-term education promotion and research on climate change to promote environmental education on climate change, nurture talents in response to climate change, enhance the public’s awareness of environmental protection, and improve people’s capacity for low-carbon life. A survey, namely The Awareness and Literacy on Climate Change, was deployed. A total of 1,201 valid samples were collected through telephone interviews by a polling company. The collected data underwent comprehensive analyses including cross-analysis, factor analysis, and cluster analysis. This project continues to provide different groups with specific knowledge as well as to introduce and promote the accurate knowledge of climate change to improve the public’s literacy of climate change.
