2016 Experience

It is easy to be a volunteer for seven days, but it is difficult to persist in sustainability over a long time. I was touched deeply by what I saw and experienced, and it is meaningful to be a supporter of sustainability for the rest of my life.
-Frank Wu, ASB 2016 Sustainability participant
