The Global Environmental Education Partnership (GEEP) is a subproject supported by the Taiwan-US bilateral environmental cooperation agreement between Environmental Protection Administration, Taiwan and the U.S. EPA. This article is mainly to state the positioning, mission, goals and strategic plans of the GEEP, as well as the history of its development since 2014. In October 2017, the 8th GEEP meeting in Washington, DC, coincided with the "Tbilisi+40," was gathered about 30 environmental education experts and scholars from 15 countries, with the theme of "Imagining a World" to launch a call for action. This advocacy is asking the international environmental education community to take stock of where we are as a field and think ahead to the future through 10 actions.
