Staff exchange visit from Nanjing Ecological Research Institute of Changshu
At the end of November one of our key Chinese partners, Nanjing Ecological Research Institute of Changshu (NJUecoRICH), sent four staff to our company to participate in an exchange visit.
NJUecoRICH is a well-established and respected company in China, specialising in wetland restoration, wetland park design, and wetland treatment systems. Through our partnership, we have delivered numerous wetland projects in China and trained Wetland Park staff.
Their itinerary included visits to two of our wetland centres, Slimbridge and London, mixed with meetings and presentations to update each other on current and future projects. A focus for the visit was to develop concept designs for Jiangxin Island, an exciting new project to create a unique waterbird site in the mouth of the Yangtze River.
The group had an interest in Wetland Treatment Systems and were impressed by the nature-based designs produced by our company across the UK for farms, visitor centres and factories. The London Wetland Centre was a trip highlight and the group felt inspired by its design, history and urban setting.
The exchange allowed us to review the Memorandum of Understanding between our organisations, and discuss future training courses for 2019.
