In this vibrant spring season, we are delighted to see that students not only acquire knowledge in the classroom but also practice social responsibility through practical actions outside of class. Many Dehong students have prepared their artworks for this charity auction, themed "One Planet", showcasing their understanding and reflections on nature conservation. These works, whether colorful oil paintings, delicate photographs, or vigorous calligraphy, each embodies the students' love for nature and their concern for ecological protection, leaving a profound impression.

This charity auction is not only an exchange of artworks but also a call for ecological protection. Therefore, we hope that through this event, more people will pay attention to the importance of migratory bird protection and participate in this event together. We welcome students and families to participate in this event. Sincerely looking forward to your participation, making this charity event the most beautiful memory for our Dehong community in this early summer, as we collectively drive forward the development of our community!
