Name: Eva Ning

What first triggered your interest in environmental issues?

my Chinese teacher's lecture, in which she says temperature is getting higher. When she was yonger, lake would freeze when winter came; but it hardly snows decades later. That is the first time I come to concern about the climate change.

What are you working on, concerned by, or motivated by at the moment?

I'm a postgraduate, learning interpretation. To be an interpreter, I have to learn about economy, national policies, environment change, ect. I want to be a good interpreter; this ambition always push myself forward.

What do you anticipate working on, or thinking about, in relation to environmental issues over the next 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years?

I could serve in evrionmental departmens, volunteer in envioroment protection campaign, apply for concerned field work. There are many things I can do, in the least, I can set an example myself by saving energy in my personal life.

How optimistic or pessimistic are you as you look at where we might be in 2020, and why?

If people continue to pollute as usual, things will become much worse. The place I live in is very dirty in my eyes, and nobody take trouble to clean it except cleanworkers. I'm neither optimistic nor pessimistic; what's imperative is to take action, determinely.
