For the exhibition, youngsters presented 140 projects to the public, including those designed to help disadvantaged groups, improve public policy, protect cultural heritage and care for the environment, among other social issues.
Out of social responsibility, they have put their creative ideas into practice through planning and conducting surveys, and eventually promote the implementation of social policies and providence of convenient services.
These high school students believe that it is indeed difficult to change the society with their own efforts alone, but tiny changes can add up to help achieve constant progress in the society, according to organizers.
Since September, Shen Fangbing and her teammates have conducted a survey on local citizens and have visited a number of vendors in her community in Hengshui City, north China's Hebei Province.
After synthesizing research results, they submitted a proposal to the Comprehensive Law Enforcement Bureau of Urban Management to rectify the street markets and improve the environment of the city.
They also proposed to speed up the construction of urban convenience markets and perfect the urban management system.
Much to their delight, the management department concerned has indicated that it would seriously consider the suggestions proposed and take accelerating the construction of the convenient market as a matter of practicality for the people's livelihood in 2018.
By May this year, the Bureau of Urban Management had built Fuyang Convenience Market."We paid a return visit. At present the market is operating well, the vendors moved in, and business is in well-divided areas," Shen said.
Senior high school students need leadership, that is, to make an impact on people around them and contribute to the community with their own positive energy and power.
Besides study, providing middle school students with the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of social problems in China was another mission for the project, said a spokesperson.
