I hope you will uphold your creativity and energy you have generated today. After returning to your schools, continue to learn with enthusiasm, and become part of the development of the clean energy industry in the future.”

Ms. Zélia Baptista, Vice President of the Board of the Macau Portuguese School said that “Only renewable energy, especially green energy can save our planet, and the students participating here today are fighting to build a better future for all of us.
