The Anji (a county in East China's Zhejiang Province) Women's Federation was presented with the award in the category of the publicity and education of environmental protection at the awarding ceremony of the 10th China Environmental Award at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on November 14. It is the only recipient of the honor among the women's federations nationwide in the category of the publicity and education of environmental protection.

Shen Yueyue, Vice-Chairperson of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) and President of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), fully affirmed the work of the Anji Women's Federation.

Shen noted that the Anji Women's Federation has played an active role in the mobilization of local families and women volunteers to promote environmental protection and made explorations and endeavors in the publicity of environmental protection, and it sets an example for grassroots women's federations to take part in the environmental protection.

According to the Anji Women's Federation, it has prioritized the role and functions of women in the creation of an eco-friendly life and the participation in environmental protection through a series of themed activities in recent years.

The county's women's federation has further rallied the strength of the grassroots women's federations, the associations of female entrepreneurs, public-service organizations and female role models in the campaigns of routine patrols along riverbanks, exposing any inferior surface water, and encouraging rural women to participate in improving the environment.

The women's federation has motivated women to participate in the building of "beautiful homes, good family traditions and beautiful hometown." The county's women's federation has also encouraged women to contribute to the rural revitalization campaign. Up till now, 85 villages in Anji have been selected as county-level demonstration villages of beautiful families, and 4 villages have been selected as demonstration villages of beautiful families in high-quality rural tourism regions. Nearly 101,000 families were selected as beautiful families of three-star level and above. Nearly 11,200 families were selected as examples of beautiful families in the beautiful villages.

In addition, 150 families were selected as county-level role models in the observance of green life, and 19 families were selected as provincial-level role models. Another 30 households were awarded for their exemplary functions in the ecological protection of local rivers.

The biennial China Environmental Award, which was launched in 2000, is the top public-benefit award in the field of the ecological and environmental protection in China. It was organized by the NPC Environmental Protection and Resources Conservation Committee, the Resource and Environment Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, the ACWF and the China Environmental Protection Foundation.

In total, 23 units and individuals won the prize in the categories of city/town environment, environmental management, enterprises' environmental protection, ecological protection and the publicity and education of environmental protection.
