Celebration of Shanghai as ‘Eco-City’

The 7th Shanghai International Nature Conservation Festival will kick off on Saturday, featuring a variety of activities to promote environmental protection and science activities, online and offline.

The festival will include a lecture with experts from home and abroad to share in the preservation of nature, visits to ecological and environmental protection facilities, tours to explore nature, a photo exhibition, and a shutterbug photography competition.

“The city has recorded about 800 varieties of plants and some 600 species of terrestrial animals and 507 species of birds, showcasing its biological diversity,” said Zhu Xinjun, chief engineer at the Shanghai Greenery and Public Sanitation Bureau.

The “Celebrate Diversity, Jointly Build an Eco-City” event will run from Saturday through Friday.

The lecture on Saturday aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity and low-carbon lifestyles. A webcast will also be held.

On Sunday, a roundtable on Chongming Island will invite experts and scholars to brainstorm topics such as the protection of biological diversity, the application of technological innovation in green development, and carbon neutrality.
