During my time studying at Victoria University of Wellington I volunteered in an environmental awareness project Guangzhou (formally known as Canton) in Guangdong province for two months in 2013. These are some of my experiences during this time, which have shaped my life choices and views on myself and others.
The New Zealand China Friendship Society and this website focuses on improving the connection between New Zealand and China. One way to do this is to learn more about each other. It would be great if NZCFS members, as well as people who are interested in joining the NZCFS who are in New Zealand or China, could share some details about their experiences. For those born in New Zealand, you could share why you want to learn about China, your experiences in China, be it study, work or travel, and say what you want to learn. For those born in China, why do you want to know more about New Zealand, what do you want to learn about it and your experiences here (work, study, travel).
