When one mentions a science park, what images come to mind? Science parks used to embody the glamour to which people aspired: a beacon of technology and innovation, or a symbol of massive profits. According to Taiwan’s Business Weekly, the turnover in the first half of 2010 for Taiwan’s three major science parks, - Hsinchu Science Park, Central Science Park (CSP) and Southern Taiwan Science Park, topped 1.05 trillion New Taiwan dollars (NT$1,052,100,000,000 or over 30 billion USD). The parks employ more than two hundred thousand people.

I hope the day comes in Taiwan when equality and sustainability prevail, when we no longer need pro-bono lawyers, or give out pro-bono awards. I don’t know whether such a day will ever come to any society, but as activists, we consciously and constantly take actions towards the direction of our dream. (Pictured: packaging area for lilies and other flowers in Houli Township where the Central Taiwan Science Park Phase 3 is based and prime farmland for flowers and other agricultural products.
