The activity was abundant in its contents and forms as evidenced by an array of interesting games including knowledge questionnaire, garbage classification, plant identification. Among them, the activity of step donation, adopting an innovative method characterized by “green+sport”, was aimed to enhance the students’ knowledge on environmental protection and call on students to practice green mobility by donating Wechat steps voluntarily. In addition, students creatively made a number of exquisite gifts by means of their markers in the DIY activity called “Waste Renewal”.
During the activity, all volunteers, always imbued with enthusiasm for public welfare in spite of the constant rains, devoted themselves to working under the tents and in the drizzle. After the activity, a student who won the first prize said to the volunteers with a flowerpot and a handful of seeds, “ I am looking forward to the healthy growth of the seeds and I believe that the awareness of environmental protection will take root in our hearts and blossom with flowers just like the seeds eventually! ”
