Because of the limited amount of resources on Earth, it is important to conserve our current supply or to maximize use so that our natural resources will be available for future generations. For example, energy conservation is important because consumption of nonrenewable sources impacts the environment. Specifically, our use of fossil fuels contributes to air and water pollution. As citizens of the world, we all share the responsibility of conserving our limited resources and this site aims to raise the awareness and educate people about conservation in the world today.
Our team comprises of six students, four from Beijing, China, and two from Singapore. We came together to participate in the annual ThinkQuest Competition. Our Primary Coach is Ms Qianwen from China.
I am a female with lots of personality. And this fact can be proven by my very unique name, Dongfang! The meaning of my name and my personality is very similar, like the sun which rises slowly in the East, full of vitality, hope and vigour. I have experienced 17 wonderful springs, summers, autumns and winters. I look back at my childhood to sadness, bitterness and of course, lots of joy. I am very happy to be able to take part in this competition. Allow me to use my enthusiasm to bring you a whole new different vision and feeling!
