On October 22, the fourth theme activity of the Chinese Bridge “One-Minute Journey in China” series, entitled “One-Minute ‘Interesting’ Environmental Protection Story”, was organized in Beijing Ditan Park. The ceremony was held, through adopting ancient trees in Beijing Ditan Park, to take actions to protect the environment and safeguard our “green homeland”.
During the adoption ceremony, the representatives of the Chinese Bridge competitors in China jointly labeled and watered the first-class ancient tree they adopted, and admired the 450-year-old Chinese arbor-vitae. The ancient tree is located in front of Fangze Altar, with a thick trunk, deep roots and flourishing branches, and stands proud there throughout the four seasons, symbolizing the deep friendship between China and the rest of the world for generations.
Soon after the invitation to adopt an ancient tree was sent out, Chinese Bridge competitors from Europe, America, Asia, and Africa, enthusiastically signed up for the “One-Minute ‘Interesting’ Environmental Protection Story”.
Reznik Anastasiia, a sweet Ukrainian blogger who won the third prize in the Chinese Bridge “One-Minute ‘Interesting’ Environmental Protection Story” event, has always paid close attention to the competitions and activities of Chinese Bridge. Participating in this activity of adopting ancient trees, she was very happy to say, “To protect our environment by adopting an ancient tree, makes our homeland a better and happier place.”
The Turkmen boy Atajan Chopanov, who was also the third prize winner of the event, thought that “the activity of adopting ancient trees organized by Chinese Bridge is very meaningful, and I was especially excited when I put the wooden plaque on the ancient tree, and my sense of responsibility to protect the environment became stronger.”
