Environmental protection is one of the most urgent problems concerning world leaders. However, the solution requires not only governmental support, but every citizen's efforts. This is the opinion held by a group of Chinese young people who believe that their documentary film will help focus society's attention on the issue.

You might say that the production value of this film is unprofessional. Nevertheless, these shots made by Chinese students bring forward such fundamental issues as biological diversity protection, forest destruction, littering, water pollution and many other environmental concerns. In this film, a man in southwest China's Yunnan province goes against custom and starts cutting trees and selling the wood to make a living.

Jiang Hua, Creator of The Summer of Nima", said, "Just to make their surroundings more comfortable for living, people extensively change them, don't they? And I hope that my work will contribute to draw everybody's attention to this problem."

Another artist has chosen a topic from his own life experience.

Zhong Yanshan, Author of "Ragpicker", said, When I had just entered college, the water in the ditch along the city wall was pretty clean, and there were fish in it. Over the last 2 years, it got seriously polluted. I'm really concerned about the problem, so I decided to make a movie about that. I think, the youth should take an active part in environmental protection. Only by doing so can we take good care of our future."

And the students' efforts were not in vain. The unveiling of their works was held in Beijing sponsored by the Pekinese Society of Entrepreneurs and Ecology.

Zhou Zhou, Project Sponsor, said, "Students are the most active part of society. Besides, they are the most educated and intelligent part. Therefore, they can be regarded as the vanguard of environmental protection activity. Helping them is contributing to the future, I think it is the best way of investment."

The ecology issue is one of the most essential work fields for the Chinese government in recent years. Thus, an energy saving project was included as one of the primary tasks in the 11th 5-year plan and it was totally completed.

Non-governmental organizations also take a great part in this campaign for ecology. So do common students. Next, their movies will be promoted to be screened at famous film festivals.
