Last but not least, I  understand the truth that there are still a long way to go in order to achieve the goal “Working Green, Living Green” and there are a lot for me to go.

I will try my best to think of any other areas that can improve the greening measure in the campus and the hostel.

The most memorable quote in these lessons is ” Go ÜberGreen means Go super green”. I think i should bear in mind this quote everyday so as to remind me to live green.
