Flowers of Happiness on Earth
Earth Day is a day of worldwide environmental protection which is celebrated on March Equinox, the date on which night and day are of equal duration. The origin of Earth Day lies in the environmental protection movement that began in the United States in the 1970s; by 1990, it had become a festival of environmental protection and awareness around the world.
On this day of global environmental awareness and action for the protection of our planet, Taipei City Government held “Flowers of Happiness” in the Mingfu neighborhood of Songshan District, where it promoted eco awareness through parent-kids DIY workshops. Although it was only a modest pot plant creation comprising of little flowers, a piece of sphagnum moss, and a piece of shoelace, this hands-on DIY planter workshop brought residents much warmth and happiness.
为响应世界环保日，台北市政府在松山区民福里举办"花献绿地小确幸"活动，一方面宣导环保，也邀约附近居民一起来做「亲子植栽的DIY」。虽是一小小的 一丁点的成就，一朵小花、一块水苔、一条鞋带亲手做成的小盆栽，大家以轻鬆活泼之方式 DIY 动手做的结果，却为居民们带来有温度的小确幸。
