The climate crisis is rarely out of the news these days, making this year's World Environment Day on June 5 all the more important.


This year's theme is "Ecosystem Restoration" and is aimed to kick off a decade of initiatives to restore natural habitats covering billions of hectares.

今年世界环境日的主题为 “生态系统恢复”,旨在启动“2021-2030年生态系统恢复十年”倡议,以恢复数十亿公顷的自然栖息地

Representatives from the UN, the Chinese government, businesses and NGOs gathered in Beijing on June 2, to discuss ways to restore global ecosystems and achieve the 2030 sustainable development goals.


Officials say China continues to make great efforts to promote ecological progress, from preserving national parks to reducing water and soil pollution.


The country is currently looking ahead to the fifteenth meeting of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity, also known as COP15, scheduled to be held in southern China's Kunming in October.
