If our planet is faced with a brick wall of problems, then adults are like roots, and youths are like “shoots,” full of energy. These roots and shoots can join hands and break through the brick walls, changing the world.
We are committed to providing environmental protection education for youths, which can bring them a deeper understanding of the environment and an awareness of wildlife conservation and environmental protection. We hope to foster feelings of respect and sympathy for all living things, enhance understandings of different cultures and faiths, and to empower and motivate individuals to actively make efforts to make the world a better place.
