“Green Life, Deceleration with plastics reduction” Let’s Do It – Workshop: Design for Earth
Faced-pace and efficiency-focused lifestyle deprived of pondering time and unconsciously generated disposable plastic products. These plastics were not treated properly after usage and accumulated as plastics wastes and pollution in our daily life. Thus, plastics reduction is an issue to which we should pay attention now.
上週Let’s do it Taiwan來此淨國際志工團，與交通大學設計思考社、清交聯合團契9月7日聯合舉辦「為地球設計思考工作坊」，邀請年輕人一同探討如何在生活中、校園和職場進行減塑，工作坊的時間長達8小時，透過腦力激盪而產生減塑方法。
On 7 September, Let’s do it! Taiwan, National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) Design & Thinking Club, and National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) & NCTU Joint Fellowship held “Design for Earth” Workshop and invited the youth to discuss how to reduce plastics in campuses, offices, and our daily life. The participants brainstormed for methods of plastic reduction in the eight-hour workshop.
The Chairman of “Let’s do it Taiwan”, Juanita Ho, delivered a speech as an opening of the workshop and told about “Green Life” from the perspective of Taiwanese surrounding by seas. The speech inspired participants to ponder the environmental issues we were facing, and officers of NCTU Design & Thinking Club led the discussion with the design thinking course of Stanford University to progress the workshop.
Many students told us that they personally learned a lot in the workshop since their original life patterns were revised and slowed down through divergent and convergent thinking of design thinking based on thoughts from different teammates. The revised life pattern enable participants to have profound plans for the Earth and changed their habits in daily life, embedding the concept of “Green Life” in their every selection.
自2008年起國際環保組織Let’s do it總部於愛沙尼亞成立，起初由一群民間青年自主號召打掃環境，逐漸擴大到全國政府單位支持，更成為聯合國永續發展目標的合作夥伴;為喚起更多民眾對環境保護的意識，每年將九月第三個週六訂為「世界環境清潔日」，每年平均有超過158個國家，全球超過3,000萬名民眾響應此活動。
The headquarter of “Let’s do it”, an international organization for the environment, was founded in Estonia in 2008 and started from a clean-up evoked by a group of youth spontaneously. The spontaneous clean-up gradually earned support from the Estonia government, and “Let’s do it” was accredited by United Nations for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In order to trigger the environmental awareness of more global citizens, the third Saturday of September was recognized as World Cleanup Day, and more than 30 million volunteers from 158 countries participated in World Cleanup Day on average.
2019年的世界環境清潔日(World Cleanup Day) 感謝全聯慶祥基金會給予經費贊助，以及環保局、教育機構和民間團體響應，從9月1日至21日，LDI Taiwan來此淨國際志工團將陸續在台灣各處舉辦環保活動和為地球設計思考的系列活動，更多活動訊息歡迎追蹤Let’s do it Taiwan來此淨國際志工團官網和粉絲專頁。
