Abstract

The reality of global warming, climate change and energy shortages has put all circles to the task of actively promoting education in energy conservation and carbon reduction. From 2004, the Ministry of Education has been promoting the Sustainable Campus Project, partially subsidizing hundreds of schools to implement hardware improvements and carry out related environmental education. This study exploreswhether the teachers and administrators of these schools are aware of Sustainable Campus Project facilities in their schools, whether they used the items, and whether they understand how these facilities work to conserve energy and reduce carbon emissions. The authors' study concludes with suggestions on how to use existing Sustainable Campus Project facilities to carry out energy conservation and carbon reduction education effectively.
