This year the the International Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots Eco-Center of Chang Jung Christian University was formally certified as the environmental education facility by the Environmental Protection Administration of Executive Yuan. According to President of CJCU, Dr. Lee Yung-Lung, CJCU provides characteristic environmental education. The establishment of the Center aimed to provide a platform for students from the International Program for Sustainable Development to promote international Roots & Shoots actions including each year’s Earth Day events, biking to Wushantou Reservoir, animal parade, and Asian Pacific Roots and Shoots Youth Summit, on-site environmental education and field studies for elementary and junior high schools, and operations of the Nature Center in Tainan's Barclay Memorial Park. In the future, multilateral partnership building with the government, academic, the industry as well as environmental advocates in Erren Creek area and local communities was expected to become the focus. CJCU’s high school and international sister university network helped to better facilitate environmental education.
