World Environment Day is the United Nation's flagship campaign for raising awareness on emerging environmental issues and encouraging action for the protection of our environment. It is celebrated on 5 June every year, and this year’s theme is “Connecting people to nature – in the city and on the land, from the poles to the equator”. This resonates so well with our Green Foot values, and our Hiking events are particularly aimed at connecting people to nature.
To commemorate the World Environment day, on 4 June Sunday we will hike along the beautiful Dongxichong coastline with the aim to clean it up as much as we can and raise awareness on protecting our natural heritage. This event is organised jointly by Green Foot, FEC, and Huanqingchun.
Dongxichong Coastline is located at Dapeng Peninsula, Shenzhen, and was once awarded as one of the most beautiful hiking routes in China. Half of the trail is along the coast and the other half goes through the rocky hills on the seaside. It is a very popular hike for many nature enthusiasts, but sadly this popularity is bringing it more and more rubbish. This rubbish is not only destroying the beauty of the hiking trail, but is also causing the unprocessed garbage entering the marine environment.
Half of the route is trail on the mountain, and half of it is walking along the coast, it has been the most popular choice for outdoor lovers. With more and more people coming to the place, the rubbish is increasing as well, there are many rubbish dump along the route which need us to clean up....
In the past, Green Foot and other hiking groups have cleaned up the parts of the trail several times. The trash, however, is always coming back at an alarming rate. This time we are united to campaign a bigger event and aim to raise awareness at unprecedented levels. We must influence people not to throw rubbish.
