A group of 59 foreign students together with six teachers at the Middle School attached to Shanghai International Studies University recently visited Engebei Ecology Demonstration Zone, an area previously impacted by desertification that has since had its natural environment restored, in the city of Ordos, Inner Mongolia autonomous region.
The teenagers took part in a tree planting activity from Sept 3 to 7, while also enjoying camping, team building exercises, and a trip to a local museum.
The group contained people from 17 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Russia, Germany and South Korea.
During their trip, the students also learned some basic survival skills and marveled at the successful efforts to restore the area’s natural environment.
