The eight founding sponsors of TBS went to the 9th World Bamboo Congress (WBC) in Belgium in 2012. On this global interactive platform, they met scholars, experts, business owners, government departments, and non-profit organizations from all over the world. Participants shared and exchanged the latest developments in bamboo-related basic research, application, management, charity, education, and carbon rights, and other environmental solutions. See how to achieve social and environmental justice through bamboo, a green resource.
Taiwan’s climatic conditions have bred a wealth of bamboo species, as well as the bamboo culture and craftsmanship accumulated by the ancestors. However, Taiwan’s bamboo industry is gradually declining, so this group of partners decided to contribute to the development of Taiwan’s bamboo. Under the call of Professor Wu Shunzhao of the Department of Forestry, a national non-profit organization “Taiwan Bamboo Society” was established on August 18, 2013.
Taiwan Bamboo Society (TBS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting bamboo in Taiwan. Bamboo forests grow fast and are renewable. It has got more attention as a sustainable resource in these decades. We pay attention to the development of the world’s bamboo industry and assist in sharing Taiwan’s bamboo technology and bamboo-related research and development with the world. TBS promotes diversified, cross-border, and cross-field cooperation and development. We plan, integrate, and promote various innovative development projects in the bamboo industry.
