Zheng Huan: There are two major parts of my work, “input” and” output”. “input” is to explain the Chinese conception of ecological civilization and share with conferees our successful cases achieved by CBCGDF and its foundation for youth. For example, the experiences that we carry out cooperation with technological community and bring it to the field of climate change and environmental protection; the approach that we made climate change visualized and interactive through technological knowledge. The “input” is referred to what we have learned in the annual conference, especially the experience that turns out to be useful in our practice and innovation.

The Beijing News: What have you prepared before this global discussion?

Zheng Huan: Most of the preparation is for learning the contents of negotiation. Plus, we made some arrangements to interview our cooperative organizations in London and Scotland, hoping to strengthen our work in overseas publicity and technology development. I wish our deeds could be helpful in introducing China’s accomplishments in climate change and construction of ecological civilization.

The Beijing News: what endeavors have Chinese young people achieved about climate change? What is the opinion towards it from an international view? How do you make it?

As for our foundation, admittedly, we did meet some challenges from the beginning. For instance, in 2019, climate change was a much less popular topic than now. However, after designing an artwork and exhibiting it in Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, together with an artist team, the audience were astonished by the fascinating pictures of white corals. Through AI practice, the look of those corals could change according to the number of the audience, expressing the relation between human and the ocean system. We try to explain the idea of climate change to all walks of life and find what mostly interests them. And then, we may be able to transform the original idea into visualized value in certain industries, which makes the whole thing even more feasible.
