3rd Green Summer Camp under Cross-Strait Green University Consortium

The 3rd Green Summer Camp under Cross-Strait Green University Consortium was held in the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) from 15-20 July 2013. Thirty-two students from CUHK, Nanjing University (NJU) and Taiwan Central University (NCU) participated in the camp.

The 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 topics including green campus, global climate change, environment policy and green architecture. Discussions were held and specific green projects were conducted among the students from different backgrounds to exchange views and inspire ideas for the three regions.

The activities not only fostered relationship among the students from the three 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 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 project of student  interflow under the Consortium. The three universities take turns to organize this student event and this year the activity was hosted in CUHK.
