The Green Long March Celebrates Earth Day

April 22, 2010 - Green Long March student volunteers visited three Project Hope schools in Beijing's Haidian District yesterday to conduct a series of environmental awareness activities with elementary students. Schools visited included Liu Lang Zhuang Elementary, Tongzhou Zifen Elementary, and Changping District's Dongfanghong Elementary.

Volunteers engaged students in recycling games, environmental awareness puzzles and a drawing competition. There was also time for volunteers to teach students how to calculate their family's daily carbon dioxide emissions. Through these activities, children were able to get a more thorough understanding of how they, as individuals, can get involved in protecting our planet.
