Abstract

In June 2010, Taiwan launched the national Environmental Education Act after two decades of debates and general discussion. As the Act is the 5th national environmental education law in the world, Taiwan’s society celebrated the potential environmental effects of the Act along with a series of educational reforms (Lin 2013; Yeh 2017). In November of 2017, however, a revision of the law was initiated to adjust to the rapidly changing society and environment of Taiwan.
