On 27 October 2023, the School of Open Learning successfully organised a one-day study tour to Nansha, Guangzhou, with more than 40 full-time and distance learning students from different Schools. This activity aims to help students broaden their horizons and learn about the latest developments in the Greater Bay Area.
The students first visited Guangzhou Automobile Science and Technology Museum and Nansha Planning Exhibition Hall, and gained useful information about Nansha’s scientific innovation development process and future vision. At the GAC Science and Technology Museum, the students experienced the latest science and technology products and applications, and personally experienced the charm and power of Nansha’s science and technology development. At Nansha Planning Exhibition Hall, students learned about Nansha’s historical changes, current characteristics and future planning through multimedia, model and sand table, and had a more comprehensive understanding of Nansha’s development.
At Chuangxiang Bay, Nansha Hong Kong and Macao Youth Innovation Base, the students interacted with Hong Kong and Macao youth representatives who had started businesses and worked at Nansha, and listened to their practical experiences and feelings. These representatives shared their work and life in Nansha, introduced career development prospects and employment opportunities, and policy support to attract more Hong Kong and Macao youth to Nansha for employment and entrepreneurship.
Finally, the delegation visited the Nansha Yacht Club and Sailing House at the mouth of the Pearl River, enjoying the beautiful scenery of Nansha, and under the guidance of professional coaches, learned the knowledge and skills related to sailing and experienced the fun of sailing. On their way back to Hong Kong, the students said that they had gained a lot from this trip, which not only broadened their horizons and deepened their understanding of the Greater Bay Area, but also filled the whole trip with fun, and hoped that the School could continue to organise such activities in the future. In response, Dr LI Kam Cheong, Dean of the School of Open Learning, said that the School is working with relevant institutions to assist students in understanding and taking advantage of the development opportunities in the Greater Bay Area.
