Commitments

The community volunteers created Community Assistance in 1998 to provide Total Solutions. Community assistance proceeds along a specific path: family-school-community. Volunteers are encouraged to get involved and "spread love in the community" by assisting school teachers in reaching out to high risk children who need extra attention and their families and helping children develop self confidence in a healthy environment.

Highlights of 2020

  • Community learning course: "healthy diet, healthy EQ, and environmental sustainability"

    Every bite we take comes from the land. The bounty that we enjoy is the fruit of harmony between man and nature. It is also an extension of sustainable agriculture. Studies have shown that diet can affect a person's emotion, intuition, and brain health. It can have an impact on personal relationship, quality of life, and happiness index. According to scientists, 91% of plastic waste generated by humans' production or consumption activities is not recycled. 8 million tonnes of plastic waste enter the ocean every year. Scientists estimate that waste in the ocean may outweigh fish by 2050. Moreover, most plastic does not decompose, and is therefore a huge hazard for earth and human health. The project combined expressive art crafts, multi-stage games, and everyday exercises to guide community members and their families to enjoy healthy diet, healthy EQ, and a sustainable lifestyle.

  • Working with businesses to become family friendly - Family education in the workplace

    "Family" is the first and most important unit to which a person is exposed. In support of the UN International Day of Families on May 15, the Ministry of Education launched the campaign, "Working with businesses to become family friendly - Family education in the workplace", in 2020. The campaign was aimed to draw public attention to the importance of family. The New Taipei City Family Education Center co-hosted with LITEON the Family Camp at the National Taiwan Science Education Center on July 25. The Family Education Center under the Education Bureau of Kaohsiung City Government co-hosted with LITEON the "Family Education in the Workplace Summer Camp for Grandparents and Grandchildren" on August 22. By working with a corporation to strengthen the bonds between different generations, the centers wished to teach children to honor and respect the elderly and to value intergenerational relationships. With the use of board games and hands-on learning activities, the events brought out awareness of food education, emotion, and environmental conservation among different generations. The event also helped participants become more tolerant and have more love and respect when dealing with other family members. A report was presented to the Ministry of Education at the public lifelong learning platform in October 2020.

  • Marine ecosystem and conservation initiatives

    The company sponsored copies of "Oceans at 23.97", which contained seven chapters. The book was written from the ocean's perspective, and reflected on journeys from the mountains to the oceans and from fishing for food and marine mammals to human consumption of environmental resources and the campaign to "slow down, achieve sustainability, and go green". The idea behind the book was deeply rooted in culture as well as in self-control and conservation. The book was proof of the extensive reach of ecological civilization. An essay program based on experience with the ocean was conducted to echo the core values of the twelve-year basic education. Educational campaigns were conducted in schools to raise awareness of plastic reduction at the sources (SDG 14) and climate change issues (SDG 13) through hands-on activities. It was hoped that the campaigns would unite different parties to start teaching children early about plastic reduction at the source and marine waste issues. The ultimate goal is to create a sustainable city (SDG 11) and join the global partnership (SDG 17).

Future strategies and goals

The coronavirus caused a global panic in 2020. It changed the world's spending habits as well as the healthcare and other industries. People were quick to realize that new industries, commercial design systems or spending patterns must not go against nature. Healthy habits and spending behaviors were a way of respecting diversity and sustainability. It was hoped lifelong learning and parenting would promote food education, EQ, and environmental sustainability. The concept of environmental protection on a personal, household, regional, and social level could be activated or created through slow down, sustainable development, green management and other environmentally conscious ideas. The ideas could then be expanded into actions that would encompass regional ecosystems. The system, meanwhile, echoed the elements of health and wellbeing (SDG 3), education quality (SDG 4), and marine ecosystem (SDG 14) in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It demonstrated a combination of global perspective and local action. The momentum was fueled by extensive knowledge and personal experience that encouraged sharing of corporate social responsibility and community learning.
