In his concluding speech, Zhao Yingmin highly affirmed Wuhan University's 128-year history of running a school for its great contribution to the country's economic and social development, and congratulated the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the Environmental Law Institute. He pointed out that the Environmental Law Institute has trained a large number of high-end environmental law talents for China; it has played an extremely important role in the establishment and establishment of China's ecological and environmental protection legal system; it has provided very important support to the work of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment. At present, the construction of China's ecological civilization is in a critical period. The proposal of carbon peak and carbon neutrality has a profound impact on China's ecological environmental protection work. The development of environmental law is facing new problems, new challenges, and new opportunities. In order to achieve the goal of a beautiful China and carbon neutrality, we need to actively improve legal guarantees, systematically study the compilation of environmental codes, strengthen the construction of regulations in areas such as biodiversity protection, marine environmental protection, and implementation of international environmental conventions. We hope that Wuhan University will continue to play a role. The disciplinary advantages and think tank resources of environmental law have made greater contributions to the construction of a beautiful China.
