A "Belt and Road" training program on urban mining and associated pollution prevention and control at Shanghai Polytechnic University (SSPU) ended on April 1.

The program, funded by the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission, was aimed at promoting cooperation in urban mining and pollution prevention among countries along the Belt and Road, and to eventually achieve a green economy.

The two-week program was held in both Beijing and Shanghai, attracting 21 trainees from 13 countries, including Pakistan, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Lectures on urban mining and associated pollution prevention and control, along with cultural experience courses and field trips to local companies, were arranged during the program.

The closing ceremony on April 1 was hosted by Meng Zhaoshang, director of the International Student Affairs Office at SSPU. All college, business, and government trainees and representatives attended the ceremony.

Song Baoru, Party secretary of SSPU, said he was pleased that the program ran smoothly, from initial preparations and curriculum arrangement all the way to its completion. He also stressed that the training program both answered China's call for environmental protection and improvement, and also strengthened SSPU's ties with all related parties.

Zama Mtembu, a trainee representative from South Africa, shared his thoughts on the program. He gave a special thumbs-up to the field trips to the local waste electrical equipment center, waste recycle and treatment company, and environmental protection company.
