Interview by The 4th Franco-Chinese Month of the Environment

QUESTION
Why have you agreed to become the spokesperson of the Franco- Chinese Month of the Environment?
请问您为什么接受法国大使馆的邀请,成为今年中法环境月的推广大使?

I have a special bond with France. I have been in the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong almost from the day I was born. By the time I was 3, I was already speaking French fluently!

(Laugh) One of my movies, Chinese Zodiac, was also shot in France. I feel very close to this country and cherish my ties to it. It is a great pleasure to be the guest of the Embassy of France in China as the patron of this year’s edition of the Franco-Chinese Month of the Environment. I have a longstanding commitment to environmental protection, but the energy of one man alone is almost bound to prove insufficient. We need to rally together all the citizens and take charge to tackle the environmental issue. I am glad to be the patron of this 4th edition of the Franco-Chinese Month of the Environment and to be in a position to call on a lot of people to join our cause.

我和法国的渊源很深,我一出生,就在香港的法国领事馆,三岁之前我还说得一口流利的法語,哈哈!

我的电影《十二生肖》也是在法国取景,所以一直以來我和法国有着深厚的感情。今次很荣幸能受到法国大使馆的邀请,成为中法环境月的推广大使。对于环保,我本身一直都希望能尽自己的一分力,但是环保更需要大家的共同努力。所以我很高兴能成为推广,影响身边更多的朋友。

QUESTION
If you could advise us to take 5 actions, what would they be?
如果需要推介5个您认为最重要的环保行为,您会推介哪些?

1. Save water ;
2. Sort our waste ;
3. Use eco-friendly vehicles ;
4. Reduce our energy consumption (for example, by turning off the light or the air conditioning when we don’t need them) ;
5. Combat food waste.

如果要我推介五个环保行为,我首选就是珍惜饮用水、垃圾分类、改用环保电动车、减少能源消耗,比如尽量少开灯、空调等等,珍惜食物。
