On the afternoon of June 25, three law undergraduates from Nankai University came to China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) to do a survey on environmental public interest litigation (EPIL). Dr. Zhou Jinfeng, the Secretary-General of CBCGDF, personally hosted the students and fully affirmed that they had just finished their sophomore of research and study so seriously and responsibly. Dr. Zhou introduced the vigorous development of the CBCGDF since the end of 2014, and a series of EPIL and other environmental protection work carried out under the guidance of the ecological civilization construction. Especially the pangolin conservation project in the past two years, as well as the platform of the CBCGDF volunteer system and the "Green Great" working committee, which is more closely related to volunteers and young students from all over the world. We work together to promote environmental protection.


In order to let students fully understand the difficulties, obstacles and potential crises that environmental public interest litigation may encounter in the actual process of carrying out, Zhou Jinfeng introduced the students in detail with typical cases such as pangolin conservation public interest litigation. Zhou Jinfeng also told the students about the hardships and dangers faced by front-line volunteers in carrying out environmental pollution investigations and illegal trade in Endangered species. But one thing can be promised is that the CBCGDF will spare no effort to help these environmental enthusiasms. In addition, the CBCGDF has always opened various platforms to outstanding volunteers, recommending them to participate in high-level international conferences, to conduct research at internationally renowned universities or international institutions, etc.


Zhou Jinfeng also presented students with NGO Diplomacy translated by excellent volunteers of the CBCGDF and environmental public interest litigation books edited by the CBCGDF. He hoped that they could pay attention to public welfare activities and social practice while studying hard. Subsequently, the students communicated with Zhang Na, deputy director of the Ministry of Law, on the practice of environmental public interest litigation.


The CBCGDF also welcomes more students to come and communicate.
