The 3rd Green Competition was held in Taiwan Central University (NCU) from 18 to 22 May 2015, co-organized by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), Nanjing University (NJU) and NCU. A total of 5 teams comprising 19 CUHK students from different disciplines (including Fine Arts, Business Administration, Professional Accountancy, Nursing, Biology, Environmental Science, Food and Nutritional Sciences and Social Work) took part in the competition. Participating students from altogether 14 teams of 3 universities showed their innovative ideas and enthusiasm for protecting our living planet in their projects, with topics ranging from in-depth studies on current environmental issues to innovation and enhancement of green products. CUHK students won three prizes, becoming the university receiving the highest number of awards. A list of awarded projects is set out below:

First Prize:        iEco: Mobile App Design by NCU
Second Prize:   Duo-la: Second-hand Exchange Platform by CUHK
                        Sewage Treatment: Research Project by NJU
Third Prize:       Grow Glow Stick: Innovation Project by CUHK

Professor Lii Kwang-Hwa, Vice President of NCU, gave remarks at the opening ceremony and encouraged students to exchange ideas on environmental protection to promote green living and sustainable development. Participating students and members of the 3 universities also had the chance to visit green sites in Taoyuan and discuss environmental issues via movie appreciation.

The Green Competition was one of the student programs developed under the Cross-Strait Green University Consortium among CUHK, NJU and NCU. The three universities take turns to co-organize the competition. The 1st Green Competition, with the theme of Environmental Protection, Sustainable Development and Green Culture was held in CUHK in 2013.
