Hackability, which started in Turin, Italy in 2015, aims at using technology to help people with disabilities and/or special needs. In the past few years, Hackability’s activities have been extended from Italy to other European countries such as France, and recently to China. In 2019, the event was successfully held at New York University Shanghai. This year, with the support and help from Changshu Disabled People Federation and UWC Changshu China, a 4-session hackability has been launched at the Yushan Academy Centre for Design and Innovation of UWC Changshu China.
On November 14, 2020, leaders of China centers of Harvard, Yale, Stanford, University of Chicago and Cornell, visited UWC Changshu China. They held a panel discussion to share their views and outlook in the field of higher education with students and teachers of UWC and CWA.

“When the spring flourishes, within the blossom, she smiles.” This is a stanza delivered vividly by Ms. Ping LI, Vice Principal,
At the end of the last semester, students of UWC Changshu China participated in a research project and presented their findings at a one day Conference on campus on "The Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic". This Project provided an opportunity for students to apply what they have learned in a real world context. UWC education puts emphasis on learning by doing and engaging with global issues which is critical for students to gain global perspective and be prepared to become future leaders and change makers.

The proverb goes ‘A fish does not know what the sea is until it is out of the sea.’ Changing countries and cities has shown me that we are destined to harness the challenges in life as motives to survive and enrich ourselves.
