About the Talk
Friendly Seed are the sowers who plant environmentally friendly seeds in the hearts of people. "Everyone has a seed of caring for the environment. We believe that everyone can make changes, put them into action, and become environmental education activists.
Have you noticed that...the blue sky is getting smoky?
Have you noticed that...green water slowly adds to the paint?
Do you find that...people are treating nature in a wayward way?
Our harm to the environment often comes from indifference and insensitivity. Therefore, in the face of today's environmental problems, we must ultimately return to communication with "people" to find the best solutions.
We believe that education is a gentle and deep-rooted force that touches hearts, communicates, transforms values and encourages the practice of environmental action.
Environmental education allows more people to see the beauty and sadness of the environment, feel more empathy for the environmental crisis, and are more willing to jointly make commitments to the land and change the current situation.
We look forward to creating happiness for people and a beautiful environment with environmental education." Friendly Seed regularly hosts activities in Kaohsiung for people (including children) to increase their environmental knowledge.
They also work in partnership with GEEP APRC to host annual Environmental Education 2-day workshops (in English) for Taiwanese and international university students. Stay tuned for 2023's workshop via the GEEP APRC website.
