With the core belief that all people’s livelihoods and well-being are directly dependant on the quality of the environment, EQPF has long focused its work on education, tree planting, climate change and international involvement. We believe that the most effective way to improve the quality of the environment is through public supervision, education and participation. Over the past three decades, EQPF has been continuously present in the environmental movements and environmental quality improvements in Taiwan and it will maintain this role in the future.
EQPF has launched education programs in schools, organized international forums, developed online courses, initiated public-awareness campaigns and organized adaptation-based tree-planting projects among other projects. We have addressed issues such as climate change, carbon emissions reduction, energy justice, environmental hormones and water conservation.
EQPF is a member of the observer delegations and participates annually in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) Conferences of Parties.
EQPF is headquartered in Taipei and the current chairperson is Dr. Ying-Shih Hsieh.
