Background

The 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China put the construction of ecological civilization in a prominent position in the overall situation of modernization, put forward the goal of construction of resource - saving and environment - friendly society and building beautiful China. President Xi also stressed repeatedly the importance of protection of environment. 10 years ago, when he worked in Zhejiang province, he pointed out that environment is our treasure. The Fifth Plenary Session of the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) took environment as one of the five development concepts, and required that we should insist on the national strategy that is saving resources and protecting the environment during the 13th Five-Year Plan period. We should insist on the road of manufacturing and developing, rich lives, good environment and civilization. Collaborative push forward and enrich our people, strengthen our nation, beautify our China and form a new pattern of modern construction of man and nature in harmonious development.

 

Everyone is responsible for protecting the environment and everyone can do this. College students are the future and hope of our society. Their environmental awareness and ecological civilization is related to the society’s future. We hope that through holding the national college original animation environmental creative contest, we can wake the awareness of protecting environment of the new generation. We want to build the platform where they can express their ideas of protecting the environment and then let them drive families and then the whole society. Contribute their positive strength for the realization of “blue sky, clear water, green mountains, clean earth”.
