Young volunteers at the 2023 Taiyuan Energy Low Carbon Development Forum that is underway in Taiyuan, capital of North China's Shanxi province, from Sept 6-8 are on duty to help ensure the event is a success and all visitors' needs are met.

According to the secretariat of the forum's organizing committee, the 160 young volunteers were recruited from more than 20 universities both within and outside Shanxi, including Renmin University of China, China Foreign Affairs University, Shanghai Ocean University, Taiyuan University of Technology, and Shanxi University. 

They received professional training on basic knowledge and general skills related to volunteer services, volunteer and business etiquette, basic emergency rescue skills, and an overview of the forum.

Li Chengzhi, who comes from Taiyuan and studies at Boston University in the United States, was named captain of the volunteers at the opening ceremony and the summit forum. 

"This forum is a grand event and a great opportunity for my hometown. I hope to contribute my efforts to showcase the charm and character of Taiyuan and its young people to the world," said Li.

During the three-day forum, the volunteers will provide services such as receiving guests, offering translation, logistics support, and on-site conference assistance. 

Based on the theme of harnessing smart energy for a greener, win-win future, the forum is being held both online and offline. It aims to promote low-carbon and intelligent development in the global energy sector, facilitating extensive exchanges and practical cooperation.

Around 3,000 participants from China and overseas are expected to attend.
