The seminar on water and ecological environment protection featured two subthemes: water pollution control and ecological protection in waters.

Positive comments from the attendees included: “Thanks to the seminar, I learned not only about the research in Tianjin on water environment protection but also about an automatic water quality monitoring system in Yokkaichi and Japanese measures for environmental protection. I also came up with new ideas about my future research by comparing and studying eco-friendly actions taken by Tianjin and Yokkaichi.”, “I thought the standards for controlling water quality and the methods for monitoring and measuring water quality are quite useful because my work is deeply related to them.”, and “The lectures covered everything from ecology to monitoring, measuring, and controlling water quality.”. These comments show that it was a useful seminar, which will help improve the water environment in Tianjin.
