Based on the previous report, the project continued to maintain and improve the existing activities. Through the seminar on how to put the theory into practice, residents in the community were given hands-on instruction to assist in the inspection of the control of vector-borne diseases. In order to raise the public’s awareness on the self-monitoring clean environment, the residents were also encouraged to take part in the events. Moreover, the concept that it was everyone’s duty to maintain a clean environment could be spread and influence others’ awareness. People will work together to create a clean environment.
In terms of the achievements, first, seminars were held to develop the knowledge and ability to eliminate mosquito breeding sources for the Environmental Protection Bureau and the cleaning squad with a total of 148 people’s participation. Second, with a view to strengthening the function of reporting the empty houses on EcoLife and the ability to eliminate mosquito breeding sources, seminars on the prevention and control of Dengue fever and on how to use the EcoLife were held for the Central Bureau with a total of 595 people’s participation. Third, hands-on training sessions and the inspection of Dengue fever were provided for residents of villages and communities with a total of 276 people’s participation. Fourth, the activities of Student Captain fighting with the Dengue Fever were held at school. The participants were up to 183 students. Through these measures, we hope that environmental education is taught from a young age and encourages family members to join Dengue fever prevention together, facilitating the implementation of Dengue fever prevention in villages and communities.
To increase the quality of environmental hygiene, the project of this year analyzed the hotspot of messy cigarette butts and judged the place type and clustering reasons. In addition, we collected the improvement measure abroad and came up with suggestions for our country. In response to Clean Up the World Weekend, Environmental Protection Bureau in 22 cities and counties launched a campaign where the public picked up the cigarette butts on the street. It is hoped that we can reduce the amount of existing cigarette butts.
