Global Citizenship Program (GCP) was first launched in 2013 with the objective to promote global collaboration in Sustainable Development education, to enrich students academically and culturally, and to prepare them for the future challenges and opportunities in this field.  The program is co-organized by HKUST and National Taipei University (NTPU) this year.  In addition to HKUST and NTPU students, a few students from Arizona State University and Yale-NUS College are also joining this 3-week intensive program combining study tours in Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Taipei with lectures given by experts from academia and the industry.  During the program, students will explore the different cities’ sustainability challenges including climate change and how mitigation and adaptation measures can contribute to sustainable urban development. Students will travel to different cities and be immersed in local environment and culture. Please visit http://www.gcp.ust.hk/ for more details.
