If you are a UCL student interested in a volunteering experience in China, working at the UK pavilion in the upcoming World Expo could be the opportunity you’ve been looking for.
2010 is the year of the World Expo taking place in Shanghai, China, from 1 May to 31 October. A World Expo is an opportunity for participating countries to showcase their achievements in areas such as culture, technology and industrial development, and the Shanghai Expo will be the biggest ever, with nearly 200 countries participating and over 70 million visitors.
The UK is one of the leading participant countries and has developed a stunning UK Pavilion, designed by British designer Thomas Heatherwick, to create a lasting impression with the hundreds of thousands of visitors to the Pavilion. The UK has also developed a range of activities for the Expo to enhance cultural, educational and business collaboration and exchange between China and the UK.
The UK Pavilion has now opened up opportunities for volunteers to work at the Pavilion, engaging with Chinese and international visitors. This is an excellent opportunity for all students with an interest in China and we would be grateful if you could pass on the relevant information to all of your students and encourage them to apply.
More information about the volunteer opportunities, along with application details, can be found on the UK’s official website for the Shanghai Expo:
where you can also learn more about the UK Pavilion and the UK’s programme of activity.
The initial deadline for applications is 31 January 2010, but applications will continue to be accepted until the end of February 2010 for people applying from overseas.
All applications and any queries about the volunteer opportunities should be addressed directly to the recruitment company, DTZ, at mailto:email@example.com
