We are from Shanghai Foreign Language School, Shanghai China~ SFLSers have been concerning our planet for long and we are now part of the Roots and Shoots, the Jane Goodall Institute Shanghai.
The team was established in 2004 and now we have more than 80 students who know quite a lot about the enviroment and keep on learning and taking action. Under guidance from R&S JGI we have been learning about enviromental sciences in an extra-curriculum course. We organise visits to organic farms near the city and go bird watching at coastal wetlands. On campus we do a variety of recycle work, batteries, paper, plastic bottles and tetra bricks. From month to month we invite local activists and environmentalists to give speeches to all the students. Interacting with other R&S groups we perform short plays and orations that encourage people to take factual actions to save the planet where we live. This year we are going to grow organic vegetables on campus through which our student members will learn a cultivating way that show respect and love for our earth.
Students can never determine what happens now, but they determine what happens next. We don't blame those who act wrongly if they don't know what is right. We believe in education. We believe in advocation. We believe in action.
