Hushan Elementary School



In response to climate change, pooling resources, cooperating with other schools, and building a resilient campus are critical. With a special focus on education about water resources and disaster prevention, Hushan Elementary School bases its sustainable campus reform on three elements: water, green, and nature and wishes to become a micro water museum and a base for green learning. Although not supplied with tap water, our school enjoys a large volume of underground water. It not only receives the greatest amount of rainfall in Yilan, but it is also surrounded by rivers and waterways. Water trucks drawing water from the school ponds is a common scene. Water is a valuable resource; however, water can also cause disasters. In 2013, we launched an energy conservation and management system, where energy usage is monitored and diesel-powered generators in case of disasters are prepared. By doing so, the school is able to capitalize on its strength, drafting a tangible energy conservation plan, and thus meeting its short-term carbon reduction goal. As for disaster prevention at school, Hushan elementary school has become a shelter in the neighborhood for its ability to generate electricity and supply water. Faced with natural disasters, it is important to examine the current situation and needs so that problems can be identified and solved. More importantly, engineering and school curriculum should be integrated so that students will become more forward-looking. Hushan actively takes action in building a sustainable campus by setting a clear goal and developing a blue print. Hushan sees a new direction for schools to progress.
