[Announcement] Fulbright Tree Planting Initiative

2018/10/31

April 21, 2016 a tree was planted on Capitol Hill in DC Honoring Senator Fulbright. Fulbright Taiwan would like to extend the idea to planting on as many campuses and school grounds as possible. Arrange to plant a tree in the Senator's honor on your campus or at your alma mater during 2018-2019. A plaque will be donated by Fulbright Taiwan, and a record is kept.


Honor the Fulbright Program and Senator Fulbright and Help the Environment

Join your colleagues around the U.S. and Taiwan. Donate and plant a tree at your university, school, business location, public park, government office, etc.

Instruction

Anytime in 2018-2019! We recommend spring or fall as the best planting seasons. Plant a decent size tree 1-4 inches. Choose a variety native to and emblematic of your location! Talk to the landscape planner/grounds keeper for hints. Care for it!

Use the tree planting to reach out to all Fulbright alumni, both on campus and graduates. Or, simply arrange a planting to add a little beauty and capture a little carbon! To go along, arrange a brown bag, small reception, panel, lecture, movie, etc. to talk about the Taiwan or the Fulbright vision. Perhaps an International Education Office, Development Offices, or East Asian Program would like participate.

Fulbright Taiwan will provide a commemorative plaque (bronze in the U.S., stainless in Taiwan). You can see the wording and picture here: http://60years.fulbright.org.tw/#instructions

Keep us informed. Check below to see the record of tree plantings in the U.S., Taiwan, and perhaps around the world!!http://60years.fulbright.org.tw/#tree_record
