We need to follow the philosophy that cares for nature. The well-measured use of natural resources is the true essence of ecological civilization.
The quote is from President Xi Jinping's keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the International Horticultural Exhibition held in Beijing on April 28, 2019.
In the remarks, Xi stressed the importance of "taking natural resources in a measured manner," citing "Zizhi Tongjian” (Comprehensive Mirror in Aid of Governance) by Sima Guang of the Northern Song Dynasty.
The natural resources the land can offer are limited, so they should be used with patience and restraint.
To actively create time and space for nature to recuperate can guarantee a more ample and sustainable living environment for mankind.
