In keeping with its constitution, purpose, and objectives, GCB has focused on the following work since its establishment: promoting environmental protection in Gansu, adopting effective measures to resolve environmental problems in Gansu, educating elementary and secondary school students in environmental protection, promoting the development of environmental associations in Gansu’s colleges and universities, and organizing training and capacity building projects for environmental volunteers.
