Ministry of Education implemented “Sustainable Campus”

hardware facilities in the campus. Afterwards, there are
enterprises which needs to carry out corporate social
resoponsibility (CSR), giving funds to develop Sustain Schools
through the counseling from universities.
This project is funded by Innolux Education Foundation, aims at
saving energy and reducing carbon, helping five elementary
schools in Miaoli County to establish energy plus classrooms,
managing seed schools in sustainable development. The goals
