Ethics & Environment Network

I'm Yuxi and I am your Ethics and Environment Officer.  

I am a second-year PhD Candidate at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. My research topic is researching the clogging of permeable concrete, compared with a new environment-friendly concrete.  

My hobbies include camping and running. I'm also a big fan of travelling. 

Climate change is a matter of great concern for all of us. I am determined to contribute in any way possible to advance our collective goal of achieving global carbon neutrality by 2050. With my fervor, previous experiences, and research background, I am confident that I can excel in my role as an officer. 

My goals: 
  • Encourage ICL's canteens to implement different sizes of food with different prices and add food trash cans. 
  • Promote the use of digital screens instead of paper, add more paper recycling bins, and let everyone know where the paper goes to give more motivation. 
  • Reduce unnecessary lighting and power on campus day and night. 
  • Host events in partnership with other student groups and societies to develop activities to address environmental concerns. 
  • Promote the use of recyclable bags and bottles. 
  • Establish a student environmental complaint mechanism, which can directly provide sustainable development suggestions. 
  • Encourage ICL's canteens to implement the plate system or allow students to bring their own recyclable lunch boxes to reduce the use of disposable lunch boxes.
