An idea worth spreading
In order to promote climate change and the urgency to take action today, I think it will be interesting to have students, photographers, or anyone in China to take an image of the sky in every hour in major cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou to show how fast the blue sky diminishes throughout the day. By gathering all these photos and putting them into a slide show online, people from all over the world can see how severe the pollution is and how urgent it is to take action today.

My TED story
I was recently connected with two great people from an organization called 350.org. Something was born from the cappuccinos and hours of conversations. A thing called inspiration.
Here is a little bit about me:
Being young and inspired, I went to graduate school with the hope of changing the world. With an internship at the Asian Development Bank under my belt, I felt extremely hopeful about landing an international development job. I believe most people at my age first learn the word reality after graduation. Two months of non-stop job hunting - without the luxury of options - and I found myself in Vermont working for a promotional merchandise company. There went my passion. It is just a job, others told me.
Or is it?
It only has to be that way if you let it. I decided to find my own way to be the change I want to see in society. So I signed up to become a translator, hoping to help spread ideas and inspirations to a Chinese audience.
To a better tomorrow!
