Climate change and energy transition have been issues under heated debates. Delta Electronics Foundation that has been devoting itself to the issues for years also communicates the knowledge on climate and energy efficiency. The Foundation organizes "Delta Media Salon", inviting media and journalists concerning themselves with climate issues to brainstorm on how to present quality stories on climate and energy.
Media Salons over the Years:
In 2009, together with The Foundation for Excellent Journalism Award, Delta Electronics Foundation organizes "On to Copenhagen: Media Salon & Workshop", compiling information of conferences pertaining to climate change for media and bloggers to equip themselves with more background knowledge when covering or observing the Copenhagen climate talks (COP15) at the end of the year.
In 2010, the book Carbon Reduction is published with the joint efforts from the members that attended the workshop in 2009 and the writers for Delta Electronics Foundation's "Low Carbon Life Blog".
In 2013-14, the Foundation co-organizes "Delta Workshop on the UN IPCC 5th Assessment Report" with Environmental Protection Society of Taiwan, helping the media in Taiwan to gain access to the latest research result by "Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change" (IPCC) and offering interpretations and analyses on AR5.
In 2017, two Media Salons were organized. The first Salon was the exchanges on the experiences of producing online issue "Air-raid Alarm" and "NTU's Campus Energy Conservation" series reports, while the second one the sharing on the topic of "Germany's Nuclear Phaseout" and the news "The Direction for the Vehicles of Green Energy amidst the Air Pollution".
In 2018, three Media Salons are to be held. The first Salon is themed with the popular topic of electric vehicles, while the second one is to witness the live stream of the press conference for IPCC's special report, Global Warming of 1.5°C, as well as the discussion and analysis on the Summary for Policymakers (SPM). The third salon shared the COP24 Polish Climate Conference tracking report and the ACEEE US urban energy efficiency policy study.
The climate salon 2019 shared the clip of live stream of the IPCC "Special Report on the Ocean and the Cryosphere"(SROCC) held in Monaco, as well as the discussion and analysis on the Summary for Policymakers (SPM).
The 45-minute production is the world's 1st 8K environmental feature documentary.
Since 2007, Delta Electronics Foundation has been participating in the COPs every year. We bring back the latest climate discussion and in-depth analysis of all kinds in the context of climate change to raise public awareness here in Taiwan.
The Award is to encourage the domestic media to pay attention to stories of environmental issues and exploit its function for "public service".
