The Collaborating Centre for Oxford University and CUHK for Disaster and Medical Humanitarian Response (CCOUC) joined hands with two student societies from the Jockey Club School of Public Health and Primary Care, to commemorate United Nations International Day for Disaster Reduction. Under the theme ‘Humanitarian Week: Disaster and Humanitarianism’, a series of activities, including photo exhibitions, seminars, a movie night, and a multidisciplinary dialogue between various NGO representatives were organized on campus from 8 to 12 October. Over 800 participants joined the events and more than 40 volunteers from six disciplines  helped out during the week. The week-long activities aimed to raise awareness among staff and students and encourage them to participate in humanitarian actions.
