We sincerely invite everyone to participate the opening ceremony and forum of Taiwan Sustainability Hub (TSH) and CIRES at National Dong Hwa University.

Taiwan is currently facing the critical transition period in the energy, economy, land use and environmental conservation sector. The main aim of TSH establishment is to promote academic networking in the national scale, to improve collaborations, to integrate knowledge, policy and action, and to seek a systematic sustainable transformative path for Taiwan. So far there are Forest Sustainability & Green Service Office at National Chung Hsing University and Office of Sustainability Knowledge and Practice at National Cheng Kung University echoing the spirit of TSH and establishing academic networks between TSH.

The aim of CIRES establishment is to promote research on the resilience of social-ecological systems, to promote the integrated governance of society and ecosystems and to solve environmental, social and economic issues under the influence of global changes. With the similar visions and aims, CIRES actively participates in events conducted by TSH. Being part of the hub, we CIRES connects with other academic networks in Taiwan to share knowledge and experience.

During the event, Deputy Minister Minn-Tsong Lin from MOST delivered a keynote speech regarding the direction of science and technology with sustainability as the core value. Professor Teng-Chiu Lin from National Taiwan Normal University shared about the socio-ecological observatory establishment project by MOST. Also, we organized a two-day forum event to address the four main social-ecological issues involved in the development of ground-mounted solar panels in the Eastern Taiwan. Four key issues include forest carbon sequestration, conservation of crucial species, socio-economic impacts and the exercise of Indigenous peoples’ right of consult and consent. In-depth academic and practical conversation with academia, government and private sector, civil society and relevant stakeholders were conducted during the event. We sincerely welcome you to join us!
