A tree of friendship was planted by Edward Shapira, consul general of Israel in Shanghai, and students from Shanghai Thomas School on Thursday, amid a slew of events organized by the consulate to celebrate the 52nd Earth Day in Shanghai.

World Earth Day, which falls on April 22 each year, aims to raise people's awareness of environmental problems and to mobilize people to participate in the environmental protection movement.

Under a theme of "Innovation and Green Practice" the World Earth Day event was organized by the Israeli Consulate General in Shanghai and the People's government of Putuo District in cooperation with China-Israel (Shanghai) Innovation Park and Shanghai Thomas School, hoping to cultivate young people's ecological awareness and love of nature. 

At the event, Shapira shared Israel's innovation and practical experience in environmental protection and encouraged the students to carry on research into renewable energy. He also invited them to visit Israel in the future.

"Israel and China can learn from each other and share experience to make our earth greener," Shapira said.
