The Cross-strait Green University Consortium was established in 2011 among CUHK, Nanjing University and Taiwan Central University to consolidate resources from the three institutions, serving as a platform for driving initiatives that incorporate green concepts into research and education. The three member institutions will develop cross-institution green programmes or competitions to get students involved in extending their experience to the community and promoting sustainable development.
The first Green Competition, with the theme of Environmental Protection, Sustainable Development and Green Culture, will be hosted by CUHK [being coordinated by Office of Academic Links (China)] in January 2013. Each of the three university will send 3 teams (a maximum number of 3 members for each team) to participate in the competition.
All CUHK students (undergraduate and postgraduate) are now cordially invited to participate in this cross-strait competition. Submissions can be plans or projects describing services, products or technological solutions for the theme chosen. An initial selection will be conducted in CUHK and up to three teams will be chosen to represent CUHK in the final competition.
Prizes of the final competition are as follows:
Champion – HK$10,000 per team
1st runner-up – HK$8,000 per team
2nd runner-up – HK$5,000 per team
Merit award – HK$2,000 per team
