Bulletin No. 1, 2014

12   Chinese University Bulletin No. 1, 2014 Environmental and Artistic Support On the 67th World Health Assembly held on 19 May 2014, Dr. Margaret Chan , Director-General of World Health Organization, stated that climate change is a common threat to global health. The world community should pay special attention to it and alleviating measures should be initiated. The Chinese University has recently set up the Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change (MoCC) to keep the public informed about the latest developments in environmental conservation and sustainability. Alongside the MoCC are galleries, cultural venues, and sites for displaying ancient Chinese artefacts and art works by staff and students—a sure sign that the University also sets a lot of store by spiritual advancement. This is why a visit to the CUHK campus is always rewarding in more ways than one.
