Chain Stories 2009 Chain Stories 2009
The “Chain Stories 2009” project provided opportunity to the participating students to write chain stories under four different categories including thriller, fairy tale, science fiction and Robinsonade. To make the project more interesting this year, the stories were made more interactive. Each group writes one chapter and at the end of each open ended chapter there are two options "do something" or "don't". The next group continues the chain from these two options. The final product was an interactive "book".

Chain Stories 2009

Climate Change and Corresponding Strategies
As the climate change exerts more and more influence on our life, people are now putting more and more attention to this pressing issue. At present, measures have been taken to cope with the climate change both in Asia and Europe from the governmental and non-governmental level. It is no doubt that the measures taken have their merits and demerits. As a result, our project aims to provide a forum for all the countries both in Asia and Europe to communicate with each other in terms of measures coping with the climate changes and its achievements. At last, project group will do some analysis on measures collected, and the analysis result will be published on a website. With the project, we hope we can learn from each other and make their own contributions to the world.
