On September 30, Nanjing University (NJU), National Central University (NCU), Beijing Normal University (BNU), Zhejiang University (ZJU) and National Cheng Kung University (NCKU)  jointly signed the cooperative agreement on Cross-Strait Green University Consortium and organized a Green Seminar  in  the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). The theme of the Seminar was Green Campus Development.  Representatives from the six member universities in campus planning, estaste and facilities management as well as sustainability offices presented reports on the theme, sharing their views and exchange ideas to promote the idea of green campus.

 

Developed by CUHK, NJU and NCU in 2011, the Consortium aspires to consolidate resources and drive initiatives that incorporate green concepts into research and education.  The three institutions have been organizing academic exchange activities, student camps and competitions since the establishment.  In order to fully utilize the platform to foster exchange in sustainability development, the Consortium was expanded to have more member universities across the regions including BNU, ZJU and NCKU. Senior members from the six institutions officiated at the agreement signing ceremony cum opening ceremony of the Green Seminar.  They included Prof. FOK Tai-fai, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of CUHK; Prof. FUNG Tung, Associate Vice President of CUHK; Prof. PAN Yi, Vice President of NJU; Prof. LII Kwang-hwa, Vice President of NCU; Prof. HAO Fanghua, Vice President of BNU; Prof. CHEN Tung-yang, Vice President of NCKU; and Prof. LI Fengwang, Associate Vice President of ZJU.  Prof. FOK Tai-fai thanked for the support and contribution of the participating universities in his welcoming speech, and hoped the Consortium will move forward and extend its influence of nurturing the new generation and serving the community. 

 

The member universities participated in the Board Meeting after the Seminar to share views on further direction of the Consortium and devise plans to enhance coordination.  The delegates next toured around the campus to learn more about the green architectures and facilities of the University. CUHK won the Gold Award for the Public Organizations and Utilities Sector at the 2013 Hong Kong Awards for Environmental Excellence, making it the first public organization in this Sector to win the award twice.
