I believe we Taiwanese must be ashamed about the way to
conserve water--we don't make it thorough in our lives.I am of the
opinion that we can apply funnel to our water tower on top of our

costs but the nature are going to take advantage of this descent idea!

Mission 8: Indigenous Knowledge - Imagine

In the year of 2094, I will be a hundred years old, the oldest elder in my country. There will be nothing left but sea, trees and stones. Because people have already run of out all the resources on earth, I mean like oil, pure water, electricity…… and so on. And, of course, car won’t work without oil, all the electronic devices won’t work without electricity. People’s life goes back to the Stone Age. They don’t even know how to make food without stoves.

And then everyone enter individual information into the watch or cell phone.

Mission 2: Food Security - Imagine

In 2020, due to the sea levels have risen,

we had less vegetables and fruits in our meals. We had dinner at our

apartment in 2012-floors. Nowadays, we run out of our food, so we have

no choice but to cook our lovely dog. Besides, we find a can of corn

which is out of the date for ten years! We are forced to eat dead

bodies! So the dishes we have today are called "fried dog", "stinky

corn", "delicious body". And all of…

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
