Rivers are living things, its change and fate has been closely linked with the history of human society. Through continuous investigation and recording, and through reports from media and “we-media”, we could pass down our concern on river landscape changes, river basin environment, fate of riverside people and the relationship between man and nature to generations. This is why Mrs. Yongchen Wang launched Green Earth Volunteers “Ten Years Rivers Visiting”

The stress that China’s river is facing might not be life-threatening to you at now, but it is, to some people like you. The coming challenges should be kept in everyone’s mind. IFCE is pleased to invite Mrs. Wang to tell us the environmental stress that China’s river system is facing, and the inspiration and stories with her during the “Ten Years Rivers Visiting”.
