As the largest and most industrialised provincial capital in southern China, GUANGZHOU is facing an increasing number of serious challenges related to emissions, river and soil pollution as well as excess energy use, all of which are contributing to the problem of climate change. Not only is it located in the delta of China’s 3rd longest river, the Pearl River, but it is also home to China’s biggest urban park.
Pilot schools in Guangzhou have invited local and national Climate Change experts to give lectures to students which encourage active participation, students have also been getting more hands-on by designing exhibitions on-campus to raise awareness of climate change issues among the other students and teachers. Activities have been organised for students to go into the local community to share the knowledge that they have learned at school.
