I attended the "Shanghai Centre for Sustainability" (SCfS) summer school program in August 2013. I went as a practicing professional and was joined by other professionals and overseas university students. The course program itself was quite busy, and covered a very broad range of environmental and sustainability topics confronting contemporary China. There were also several elementary mandarin language classes, group workshop exercises, and interesting visits to businesses and NGOs around Shanghai. I enjoyed the opportunity to meet professionals, academics, official, entrepreneurs, volunteers and students all actively involved in solving China's pressing environmental problems. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and was able to continue for 4 months on an workplace internship also arranged by SCfS. Thank you, Robert Worrall, Brisbane Queensland Australia.
