DE is a long-term teenage physical exercising program supported by the National Education Research Network, aiming at developing the youth’s complete personality and surviving skills. Recently, Prof. Zhou has been inducted into the DE Hall of Fame and became the Person of the Year.
DE’s slogan is “world civilian, future leader”. The organization applies to cultivate the youth with complete healthy personality, basic living skills, and determined leadership. With the combination of family, school, nature and society, DE wishes to introduce the nature experience education into the current education system, hence to effect and push the development and revolution of Chinese education.

He encourages the youth to focus on their real interests and not to waste their time and energy on “so-called honors”. He took himself as an example, encouraged students to find out what their real interests are and chase for dreams.
