Youngster takes lead in protecting environment
Adjust font size:

Southwest China’s Chongqing Municipality's Chen Xingtong, 11, was so concerned about a polluted river he did something about it and as a result the local authorities are conducting an investigation into the problem.

Last October, Chen was playing on the bank of Jialing River with his parents and found refuse in the water. This spurred him to find out where it came from. After investigating for six months in his spare time, Chen wrote a report on pollution in the river and suggested some measures to clean it up.

His report attracted a lot of attention from the local government and the relevant departments concerned are taking steps to solve the problem.
