The University of Macau held the “Healthy University Week” to promote the idea of a healthy university. The opening ceremony was held on 22nd October, 2007. Nearly 200 people attended to witness UM’s determination to create a healthy university. Rector Iu Vai Pan expressed in his speech that the aim of a healthy university was to make all members of the university have a positive and healthy physical, psychological and social development and to create a learning, working and living environment which promoted energy saving, greening, physical and mental health and community development support. The series of activities only mark the beginning of UM’s planning of a healthy university. UM still relies on constant efforts in all respects and everybody’s active participation to improve the quality of life of the staff, teachers and students.
During the launch ceremony, there was also an award ceremony for the “Recycling Bin Design Competition” as well as wind music and dancing performance.
