The Chi Po-Lin Foundation
Discovering Taiwan, Safeguarding Our Home: Everybody can be like Chi Po-lin.
Safeguarding the environment was Chi Po-Lin’s vocation. He dedicated his passion and life to documenting Taiwan’s beauty and sorrow, an endeavor that has awakened the public to take action and be persistent in environmental protection. Establishing the Chi Po-Lin Foundation marks the rebirth of Chi’s spirit and ideal. The Foundation shoulders Chi’s vocation of documenting Taiwan by promoting ecological education while supporting and nurturing a younger generation of environmental documentary image creators to carry Chi’s vision and perspective into the next generation, continue the seeding of environmental sustainability, and strive for environmental betterment.
Since its establishment five years ago, the Foundation has raced against time to realize the projects of “Digital Archive,” “Environmental Education,” “Chi Po-Lin Museum,” and “Finding the Next Chi Po-Lin.” Successively, these visionary projects have been realized. Moreover, upon the 10th anniversary of the release of Beyond Beauty – TAIWAN FROM ABOVE, the production of Beyond Beauty – TAIWAN FROM ABOVE III has been launched, along with a series of other events such as a touring photography exhibition and marathon events, hoping to re-awake people’s enthusiasm and their feeling of being moved.
“Seeing Taiwan. Safeguarding Our Home” is an unceasing effort that needs people’s recognition and support. The Chi Po-Lin Foundation sincerely hopes more friends can join us, sponsor our projects, and help Chi Po-Lin’s lifelong dream continue to expand and soar.
Let us safeguard Taiwan and use images to create the power of change!
