Last night, St Chad’s held the first in our Global Perspectives Series, “China and the World”. A very informative and thought-provoking first session on “Environmental Sustainability in China” was introduced by Chad’s postgraduate student Dewi Humphreys.
The debate and conversation that followed was lively and constructive, enriched by the diversity of a group that included members of all three common rooms – JCR, MCR and SCR – and students from China, the UK and a number of other countries around the globe.
“It was such an informative and inspiring event,” wrote one Chad’s student afterwards: “I have never looked into environmental issue from such a global perspective. I look forward to the next two sessions.”
The next session is on January 29th and will be looking at the theme of “China and the State: History, Ideology and Lived Experience.”
