Education ministry opens website for students to share dreams

Taipei, Sept. 10 (CNA) The Ministry of Education launched a website Friday to allow students to share dreams that they would like to realize in their lives.
Students are invited to e-mail their dreams, by individual or by class, to http://enews.kh.edu.tw/love99.
The project is part of a "Love99" drive the Ministry of Education started this year to highlight the importance of "life education" to students, Deputy Education Minister Wu Tsai-shun said.
Other activities of Love99 activities include students working as volunteers for a day, sponsoring children from less-privileged families, and practising "green" consumption.
Besides learning to love themselves and others, the drive aims to teach youths to learn how to lead environmentally friendly lives and become "green" consumers who nurture habits such as turning off lights when they leave rooms and eating vegetarian for a day, Wu said at a function marking the launch of the website.
The deputy education minister also conferred prizes to 40 students who won a mobile phone text writing competition on "A Green Moon Festival." Many of the winners criticized Taiwanese practises when observing the Moon Festival -- also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival -- such as barbecuing or buying and giving over-packaged products as gifts.
