Name: Wang Jinlei
Role: Managing Director
What first triggered your interest in environmental issues?
My exposure to some international conferences enables me to understand more about global warming, and prompts me to do something about it.
What are you working on, concerned by, or motivated by at the moment?
I am volunteering at Environmental Education Media Project for China (EEMPC), which is a gateway to understand environmental issues and contribute to raise Chinese people's awareness of these issues.
What do you anticipate working on, or thinking about, in relation to environmental issues over the next 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years?
Firstly, I will pursue a low-carbon lifestyle. Secondly, my contribution to EEMPC will continue. Third, i will ask my friends and people join the cause of environmental protection.
How optimistic or pessimistic are you as you look at where we might be in 2020, and why?
I am quite optimistic at the propect of global environment in 2020. There are three reasons. First, countries around the world have demonstrated their commitment to a low-carbon economy, and are taking concrete steps to realise their goals. Second, a growing number of people have become acutely aware of environmental degradation, and are eschewing their current lifestyles in favor of a low-carbon one. Third, education on environmental issues is so drummed up that more and more people will join the cause of environmental protecton.
