This book bridges the gap between two critical issues—environmental literacy and social norms – and explores various topics and case studies from Sinophone and Taiwanese perspectives. Each chapter includes extensive information on pro-environmental behaviors, and on people with working experiences, home experiences, and actual philosophies in their daily lives. In keeping with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), this book highlights our potential to contribute to social inclusion and environmental protection, and offers a comprehensive guide for scholars, students, practitioners, and entrepreneurs in environmental education and related disciplines.
