Backstories 緣起

Over years of work, activists have generated huge amounts of data about the Taiwanese conglomerate. However, this data is often stored in activists’ homes, inaccessible to others working on related issues. 

As a transnational civic data infrastructure, the Formosa Plastics Archive seeks to connect affected communities from Taiwan, Texas, Louisiana, Vietnam and beyond.

台塑集團工業區對環境、健康與社會之長期影響,北美、東亞、東南亞行動者皆蒐集豐富資料。然在缺乏完善資訊整合平台下,資料與經驗難以流通廣傳。本檔案館之目的,在於建置公共資訊平台、彙整累積相關資訊,促進跨國比較研究、公眾教育與行動串連。
