UWC Day is the annual global celebration of the UWC mission and values, which takes place during the week of 21 September every year, to coincide with the UN International Day of Peace.
On August 27th, during rain, a new cohort of students arrived at UWC Changshu China and joined the big family of UWC.
Passion Project is a core component of the Foundation Program (FP) of UWC Changshu China, which aims to cultivate students to conduct in-depth research on areas of interest and turn them into practical projects in order to enhance the ability to put knowledge into practice. In this issue, Betty Lu, a FP student, shared her Passion Project. Betty spent a year exploring and studying the plant species on campus and compiled an ebook of plants introducing more than 30 species of plants with beautiful illustrations.

Everything is streaming, gleaming, recklessly jostling,
Hometown is a land of inspiration. When I returned to my hometown for vacation, I lay on the familiar hillside again. The white clouds are like marshmallows, but at the same time, they have the weight of ice cream, and the blue sky is still the same as when they left, very blue.
