Junior Chamber International Taiwan Visits Taichung City Government; Appreciation of Youth Power from Mayor Lu
The Junior Chamber International (JCI) Taiwan today (the 23rd) visited the Mayor of Taichung City, Lu Hsiow-Yen and exchanged opinions towards industrial economy and social welfare. For the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs) including net zero emission by 2050, local regeneration and the beauty hero event promoted by the JCI Taiwan, Mayor Lu pointed out that next year's JCI Taiwan's goals will match with Taichung City Government's priority policies. The Taichung City Government placed great emphasis on the issue of youth political participation and in the future, horizontal collaboration with the Taichung City Government Low-carbon City Promotion Committee, Research, Development and Evaluation Commission and the Bureau of Economic Development will be conducted.
"Taichung is on its correct path to a low-carbon city," said the Mayor Lu. Recently, she spoke at the "Action for Climate Emergency Forum" about active promotion measures adopted by the Taichung City Government to improve energy efficiency and resolve the issue of the Taichung Power Plant. This year's UN Conference of the Parties (COP) for the first time proposed to reduce the use of coal-fired power and this indicated Taichung was headed in the right direction. The Taichung City Government will continue its efforts. She restated that COP's proposal to reduce the use of coal-fired power and the UK's determination to replace coal-fired power demonstrate JCI Taiwan's action for environmental protection. The Taichung City Government is willing to work with JCI Taiwan to implement conclusive decisions of COP.
The new President appointed for 2022 JCI Taiwan, Huang Hsin-Hou, pointed out that starting from next year, the JCI Taiwan will promote realization of UN's 2050 net zero goal. Additionally, JCI Taiwan will put efforts to promote marine ecology education, regional regeneration and Taiwan's only women empowerment event. According to the JCI Taiwan, this event will include daily necessities, small stands and picnics to showcase the strengths of women, a chance for JCI's self- reflection. President Huang hoped that next year, more female members will join the JCI Taiwan. Since Mayor Lu is the only female leader among the six special municipalities and, therefore, the JCI Taiwan has selected Taichung as the venue of next year's women empowerment event.
Mayor Lu said Taichung is the second largest city in Taiwan and the JCI Taiwan's next year's goals matched with the priority polices of the Taichung City Government and the collaboration with the Taichung City Government Low-carbon City Promotion Committee, Research, Development and Evaluation Commission and Bureau of Economic Development will be conducted. She suggested to invite participation of professional organizations and volunteers for better results.
The Social Affairs Bureau pointed out that it appreciates very much the important partnership with the JCI Taiwan, which provides the youth a platform to develop leadership skills, social responsibility and friendship with learning and training opportunities in four aspects, "individual, community, international community and business." Through learning and training in different duties and valuable experience sharing within the organization, the youth is able to develop their talent and leadership skills, promote friendship with other members, grasp business development opportunities and be guided to participate in social services and caring.
Led by the new President for the 2022 JCI Taiwan, Huang Hsin-Hou, the delegation was greeted by Mayor Lu, Taichung City Government Executive Officer, Lai Sen-Lin, Director General of the Social Affairs Bureau, Peng Hui-Chan, Executive Director of the Taichung City Government Low-carbon City Promotion Committee, Huang Hsiao-Ching, Commissioner of Research, Development and Evaluation Commission, Wu Huang-Sheng and Councilman Lo Ting-Wei.
