On 5th June, 2014, Ambassador Minute Alapati Taupo presented a speech at the World Environment Day celebration held by the Environmental Protection Administration at Huashan Park. This event also marked the premiere of “One Earth, One Chance,” a short documentary film featuring an interview with Ambassador Taupo. Following this landmark occasion, the Ambassador traveled to Taoyuan’s Lao-Jie River Hsin-shih Park on 8th June, 2014, where he spoke again on environmental protection and climate change and planted trees alongside Taiwan’s Minister of Agriculture Chen Bao-ji.

2014年6月5日,陶敏德大使出席環保署於華山藝文特區舉辦之2014年世界環境日活動,並受邀講解氣候變遷對吐瓦魯所造成的負面影響。此活動亦是世界環境日主題紀錄片「一個地球、一個機會」之發表會。陶敏德大使曾經於吐瓦魯國駐華大使館接受環保署員工訪問,且環保署已將該訪問之錄影納入該紀錄片當中,成為其重要組成部分。在該發表會結束後,陶敏德大使於6月8日赴桃園縣老街溪畔新勢公園出席環保署之「小島嶼與氣候變遷」活動。參加該活動時,陶敏德大使再次受邀討論環保與氣候變遷議題,並於老街溪畔新勢公園內與農委會主委陳保基一同種樹。
