First Green Summer Camp under Cross-Strait Green University Consortium

A Green Summer Camp, hosted by Taiwan Central University (NCU) and co-organized by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and Nanjing University (NJU), was held from 10 to 17 July 2011 in Taiwan. The camp was the first joint student activity under the Cross-Strait Green University Consortium among CUHK, NJU and NCU.

Twenty-seven students from the 3 universities participated in the camp. The eight-day camp comprised of seminars, talks, field trips and visits for the students to obtain knowledge on green concepts and extend their experience to the community. Lectures and talks covered a wide variety of topics including green campus, global climate change, green economics, green ethics and green architecture. Discussions were held among the students of different cultures and backgrounds to inspire ideas and exchange views from the three regions.


Field trips and visits played a profound part during the camp. The students joined hands to participate in a lot of green activities ranging from removal of invasive plant species, tour organic farm and green buildings, to garbage sorting and recycling task. The activities not only fostered relationship among the students from the 3 universities and enhanced their awareness of environmental protection, but also advocated the message to apply green initiatives into daily lives.


The Cross-strait Green University Consortium was established in May 2011 with the aim to consolidate resources from CUHK, NJU and NCU, and to serve as a platform for driving initiatives that incorporate green concepts into research and education. The Green Summer Camp is a kick off project of student exchange under the Consortium. NJU will organize the camp next year and CUHK will host the activity in 2013.
