"Hopefully more people, especially youngsters, will get to know the goals and concepts given my influence on the Internet," Wang said.

"The campaign will last for years to come D.J. Reader Jersey ," he said. "We need to keep using local social media platforms which Chinese people are familiar with."


"We have to keep people's interest, involvement and engagement not just for 2017, but all the way up to 2030," he added.
