YOUTH Ambassadors of the Republic of China (Taiwan) have shared few concepts on cleanliness with the national university of the country (SINU).
During an open forum on Thursday last week, the students shared what they describe as methods widely and effectively used across universities in Taiwan.
They said in Taiwan as soon as a person is registered as a university student, it is compulsory to undergo community service voluntarily and be responsible for campus environment.
This process will determine students’ pass grade; if not satisfactorily completed it will be repeated until the individual completes community service in the campus, they said.
Students, lecturers and the Acting Vice Chancellor of SINU agree that it is an ideal concept which they believe if applied will help address environment issues facing SINU.
Acting Vice Chancellor Professor Prem Rai said they will consider the new idea.
Rai said Taiwan and SINU have signed few MOU which are beneficial both long and short term.
“We have indeed very active collaboration with institution in Taiwan, and we very much appreciate our institutional partnership,” Rai said.
Director General on Home Assignment Department of International Corporation and Economic Affairs Mr David WT Chang acknowledged SINU for hosting them.
He said visitation of the Taiwan’s Youth Ambassadors to SINU with their exchange ideas will help the university and the students.
Mr Chang said its cultural exchange programme is part of country bilateral with Taiwan and visit here is to deepen the cordial relationship between Solomon Islands and Taiwan.
Meanwhile, SINU students have performed two cultural performances to the Taiwan Youth Ambassadors which have them stunned to see our diverse culture.
In return, the Taiwanese students also did cultural performances.
