30 Fudan students to volunteer for Milan Expo

THE Chinese organizer participating in the Milan Expo 2015 yesterday began recruiting volunteers among students at Fudan University to go to Italy for the event.

Some 30 Fudan undergraduates will be selected and trained to become volunteers as well as representatives of Chinese youth at the Expo, said Chen Anjie, director with the organizing committee of the China Corporation Joint Pavilion at the Milan Expo.

“The students will become a live exhibition of Chinese youth at the Expo,” said Xiao Sijian, the university’s publicity department director.

The committee yesterday signed an agreement with the university to also work together on explaining the exhibition’s theme, forums and pavilion issues.

Information on the design of the China Corporation Joint Pavilion was also publicized under the theme “Chinese seeds.” Many state-owned enterprises such as the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China and Baosteel have confirmed their participation at the pavilion.

The architecture of the China Pavilion, shaped in the form of rippling wheat, will stretch for 4,590 square meters, and the core exhibition concepts will be “heaven, Earth, humanity and harmony,” said Wang Jinzhen, general representative of the China Pavilion.

The “heaven” exhibition area will show the Chinese people’s respect for nature, Wang said, while another, called “ground,” will display harvest scenes and the diversity of rivers and mountains across the country.

The Milan Expo will last from May 1 to October 31, 2015.


Its theme, “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life,” is aimed at raising awareness regarding the challenge of hunger and the impact of waste.
