The Environmental Protection Department of the Executive Yuan determined to educate people through children’s theater. It adapted four children illustration storybooks of, “a letter from the Arctic”, “building a house for collared scops owls”, and “The treefrog’s journey” to make a new environment educational play. The new play is called “Protecting OUR environment”. The content includes climate change, environmental protection, energy policy and expectations for the Future.
After the first performance at Taipei Children’s Amusement Park on July 23rd, 2020, the show was free of charge to audience continued in Taipei City, Kaohsiung City, Pintung County, Tainan City, Taoyuan City, Chiayi County, New Taipei City, Yunlin County, Taichung City, and Taitung County. The total number of audience reached 3,411 people. During the performance, the audience learned how to live a simple life and coexist with the nature.
Environmental issues are actually closely related to everyone. From the country’s policies to everyone’s lifestyle and attitude towards nature, the environmental issue should be the most important topic for any country. It’s the best that we can cultivate the correct attitude towards the environment from an early age. We can teach environmental education to our children through stage performances, and picture books to strengthen their concept of environmental protection and sow the seeds of environmental care in their hearts.
In this way, everyone cares about the land where they grew up. Only the quality of life can be improved, the body can be healthy, and find a coexistence way to live with the nature.
