1. Promote Low Conbon Education Hall at Environmental Park and climate change education
In view of the fact that the construction of low-carbon island has become the focus of the development of Kinmen County, in order to inspire residents to pay attention to the Kinmen Low-Carbon Island and energy conservation and carbon reduction, Kinmen County had set up the first low-carbon theme site, namely “Low-Carbon Education Hall at Environmental Park”, to convey various low-carbon concepts in a lively and interactive way. In order to expand the promotion of the Low-Carbon Education Hall and convey the low-carbon concept of Kinmen County at the same time, this project has already implemented the "Climate Change Campaign!" for a total of 2 events. The theme of the events was climate change mitigation and adaptation. Through diversified courses, children’s awareness and attention to climate change will be enhanced, so as to achieve comprehensively rooted low-carbon environmental education.
In addition, to promote the Low-Carbon Education Hall, 768 promotional items-key ring puzzles were produced. The design adopts the uniqueness of the Low-Carbon Education Hall and combines the local characteristics of Kinmen County and the concept of environmental protection. A total of two styles of key rings were designed and distributed to the public in conjunction with the activities of the Low-Carbon Education Hall.
2. Maintenance and improvement of the display facilities of the Low-Carbon Eeducation Hall and the operation of volunteer organization
Since March 2020, this project has regularly maintained the green roof of the Low-Carbon Education Hall every month, including plant pruning and weeding operations (10 times completed), pesticide application and pest prevention operations (4 times completed), and fertilization operations ( 4 times completed) and wood guard paint painting operations (1 time completed). In addition, arrange volunteer commentary services in the Low-Carbon Education Hall to maintain the energy of the interpretation service.
3. Greenhouse gas inventory work
Based on the latest version of the county and city level greenhouse gas inventory calculation guideline, this project cconducted the 2018 greenhouse gas inventory for the administrative district of Kinmen County, and reviewed the past data and made corrections. The results of the survey of greenhouse gas emissions in Kinmen County in 2018 were 387,601 metric tons of CO2e/year, and the proportions of each sector were: energy-residential and commercial, agriculture, forestry, fishery and animal husbandry sectors accounted for 32.9%, energy-industrial sectors accounted for 30.5%, energy-transportation sectors accounted for 25.7%, the waste sector accounted for 7.5%, and the agricultural sector accounted for 3.5%. From the analysis of emission trends from 2012 to 2018, there was no obvious change from 2012 to 2013, but it increased in 2014 and stabilized again in 2015. After a slight increase in 2016, there was no significant change until 2018. As far as per capita emissions are concerned, there was a trend of declining year by year, showing that the actions to save energy and reduce carbon were actually implemented and effective. Regarding international carbon disclosure, the results of the 2018 greenhouse gas inventory of Kinmen County were registered in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) on November 10, 2020.
