To Collect youth's voices for shaping New Taipei City's sustainable policies, the City Government invited seven students at New Taipei's Our Lady Of Providence Girl's High School(崇光高級中學) to share their thoughts about their vision for 2030, when they are turning 26, and their top priority goal among the 17 UN SDGs.
1. Yin, Zi-Quan(尹姿荃) hopes to dedicate herself to volunteer works in 2030. She also proposes reducing water and energy consumption, making impacts little by little through everyday life.
2. Wang. Yu-Wen(王昱文) looks forward to a more inclusive and friendly society of Taiwan in 2030, especially for minorities such as LGBTQ and migrant worker communities. She also urged the public to cherish Taiwan's natural resources.
3. Li, Yi-Ting(李翊榳) says her priority among the 17 SDGs is Goal 4 - Quality Education. She foresees an education transformation in 2030 that enables students to choose their favorite courses online and receive their education through digital devises.

5. Xie, Han-Yi(謝涵亦) regards Goal 2 - Zero Hunger is the most crucial SDG as it meets human being's basic need. People needs sufficient food prior to handling more difficult issues.
