"The global climate change is deeply affecting human beings' living and development. Our country, now in a stage of fast industrial and urban development, is facing obvious environmental pressure," Xi said here Saturday while attending activities to mark this year's National Science Popularization Day.

The theme of Saturday's activities is "saving energy and resources, protecting ecological environment and ensuring safety and health."

Xi urged the whole society to continue energy-saving and emission-reducing campaigns and support the country's policies on climate change.

In addition, Xi urged the country's youth to put forward more ideas for low-carbon life style and contribute their own green inventions.

    The Aegean Sea is between the Greece Peninsula and Asia Minor Peninsula, dotted with many beautiful scenery islands, like a paradise on earth.
