This project has been implemented since July 17, 2020. The objective of this project was to establish the Green Life Information Platform (Green Platform) to assist the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) in promoting the concept of Green Life. This project contains two primary goals: establishing and maintaining the Green Platform to promote the Green Life Movement as well as planning and designing a website in line with the theme of Green Life to attract public participation and achieve project implementation. Cooperating with the EPA, the project team improved the project execution quality and efficiency. The project team conducted 27 interviews to understand the requirement of the EPA.
Regarding the presentation of Green Life information, the Activity section provides a map query function. The Green Platform collects events and compiles the activity information announced by local environmental protection departments by data connection, allowing the public to quickly search for events through the map function. During project implementation, the project team assisted the EPA in uploading the information of 26 events. According to the contract, the project team actively collected and submitted 27 events on a two-week basis after launching the platform. The Green Knowledge section is designed to promote the knowledge and policies of the EPA. This section presents the EPA policies, Green Points, environmental education information, Green Life promotion materials, and other related materials. A web push notification function was integrated into the Hot Topic section to show popular articles at the top of the webpage to assist web browsing. A total of 188 articles have been collected and demonstrated in this section during the project implementation period.
Regarding project task accomplishment, the project team established a reporting system on the administration end and provided visualized results and system instructions. The Green Office Response and Green Restaurant Response functions were established, and the promotion results of counties and municipalities were visually presented in the Green Office section. The system sent users notifications of the entire response procedure by e-mail, including application submission, correction, and approval. The Green Life customer service hotline was set up for inquiries on system information and operation. A feedback function was integrated into the member section for users to post their experiences, photos, or suggestions as blog articles on the Green Platform. This function enabled users to browse and reference one another’s articles; this information also served as references for activity organizers to evaluate activity effectiveness and make future improvements.
Four thematic sections, namely Green Restaurant, Green Travel, Green Office, and Green Point, were established according to the themes of Green Life. The project team enriched the platform content to attract public participation and encourage interaction.
