The 18th UK-CARE AGM @ Cambridge



The 18th UK-CARE Annual General Meeting held in Cambridge was very successful!  More than 70 people registered and attended the AGM; 

there were nearly 10 temporary participants. 

One of three non-Chinese participants provided a poster presentation.  Each session of the AGM went very well and smoothly. 

This was an excellent opportunity for academic exchange, 

developing potential collaborations, expanding the network in the areas of resources and environment between the UK and China. 

While 18th UK-CARE AGM at Cambridge is memorable,  we are expecting to meet you again next year at the UCL.




主席致辞 · Words from the Chair

Dear UK-CARE members,
A warm welcome to all the members to Cambridge. I am very glad to have over 70 attendees to join this year’s UK-CARE Annual General Meeting (AGM). We also want to give special welcome to the 26 delegates from the Jilin University, travelled from the mainland China to join our AGM.
The UK China Association of Resources and Environment (UK-CARE), founded in 2000, is a non-profit international organisation. It aims to promote the international collaborations to realise the sustainable development and management of the resources and environment. Our association has been continuously growing up in the past 18 years owning to great efforts and contribution from all of you, the UK-CARE members, especially for the UK-CARE committee members and officers. It worth noting that the UK-CARE could not have gone this far without the important and continuous support from the Education Section of the Chinese Embassy in the UK.
It is my great honour to be elected as the new Chair of this extraordinary association. It is a rare privilege and a great responsibility. In the past year, the UK-CARE Office has been formed; the standardisation of our association has been improved; our new logo has been designed via a logo competition; our new website ( has been developed; our new WeChat public platform (DearUKCARE) has been created; the ideas for the UK-China scientific collaborations have been collected; and more to come. I would like to take this opportunity to thanks those who have generously contributed to the development of the UK-CARE. I hope that more could join our UK-CARE Office to witness the bright future of our association.
