This year we have 24 projects from international delegations and 14 projects from local delegats! Visit the CEI Alumni Blog to see the projects!


Mother Earth supports life and helps people to develop diverse cultures. As environmental degradation is causing many challenges nowadays, we need innovative thoughts and practical methods to secure a sustainable future with respect for nature and culture.  

Taiwan, “Ilha Formosa” (called beautiful island by Portuguese sailors in the16th century) is full of bio-diversity and cultural diversity. Throughout the CEI conference in Yilan, participants will discover the abundance of Taiwan’s natural and cultural heritages as well as learn from friends from different cultures and expand our vision of environmental education and sustainability.
