Royal Palm Elementary STEM Museum Magnet School to Host Taiwan Educator Delegation

Wednesday, September 30, 2015
 
As part of the U.S.-Taiwan Eco-Campus Partnership Program, Royal Palm Elementary STEM Museum Magnet School will host a delegation of educators, school administrators and Taiwan Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) officials on Thursday, October 1, 2015, from 9 – 11 a.m., at Royal Palm Elementary STEM Museum Magnet School, 1951 NW 56th Avenue, Lauderhill, FL 33313.

The U.S.-Taiwan Eco-Campus Partnership Program is coordinated through the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) with its Eco-Schools USA program. It unites schools in the United States and sister schools in Taiwan to implement sustainability within their school practices and curriculum, while sharing experiences with one another throughout the process. In Florida, NWF’s partner on this project is Naturescape Broward, a program of Broward County’s Natural Resource Planning and Management Division.

The U.S.-Taiwan Eco-Campus Partnership Program is one of the major projects of the International Environmental Partnership launched by Taiwan EPA under the Administrator Kao-Yen Wei and U.S. EPA administrator Gina McCarthy. The partnership will focus on environmental and sustainability themes within partnering schools. This three-year program aims to match 85 pairs of schools between U.S. and Taiwan, which brings the education communities in both countries together.
