SERVICE
My service has two foci: (1) brining cultural diversity into professional, academic, and communal fields, and (2) protecting environment stewardship through community efforts. I worked on both focuses in international, national, regional and local levels. The highlights of my service from the first category (cultural diversity) include: (1) In 1996, I was one of the four co-founders of the Pacific Rim Human Exchanges of Local Planning (HELP) network. Since 1998, HELP has transformed into Pacific Rim Community Design Network, and today it has around one hundred participants who are community planners, designers, landscape architects, and architects from Japan, Taiwan, China, Singapore, Hong Kong, and United States. I am in charged of coordinating the 2006 conference in China. (http://faculty.washington.edu/jhou/pacrim.htm) (2) In 2004, I was one of the three co-founders of the cross-cultural research and education collaborative network, Voices Integrating East and West (VIEW). I coordinated the first VIEW symposia in 2004 [64 participants from China, Japan and the United States]. There are 6 landscape programs in Japan, Taiwan and the USA that have joined VIEW’s effort to bring Asian cultural and exchange in their curricula, including: National Taiwan University (Taiwan), Tankiang University (Taiwan), Chiba University (Japan), Meijigakuin University (Japan), University of Washington (USA), and University of Maryland (USA). (http://view.megacitysite.com/)
The highlights of my service from the second category (environmental stewardship) include: (1) From 1997 to 2000, I was a founding member and organizer for Spoonbill Action Voluntary Echo (SAVE International – an Earth Island project). It is a voluntary organization dedicated to an international plan to rescue the potential extinction of the black-faced spoonbill and earned UC Berkeley’s 2000 Chancellor’s award, University-Community Partnership Project. (http://www.earthisland.org/project/viewProject.cfm?subSiteID=25) (2) From 1998 to present, I have been a founding member and advisor of the Taiwan Environmental Action Network (TEAN). TEAN is a US-based group seeking to broaden Taiwan’s involvement in international efforts on diverse environmental issues. I co-lead the campaign to stop high-tech expansions.
