My name is Joyce Wang, and I am the project manager of IBCOL 2021.
In a bid to increase the competitiveness against overseas talent in the IBCOL 2021, and ultimately the employability of students, we are currently organizing the International Blockchain Olympiad, an annual global competition inviting current and recent students to propose solutions for real-world problems with blockchain technology.
As we believe the HKBU engages students with comprehensive skills in the industry, we would like to invite Career Centre to help us promote to prospective students to join our competition.
To join, students, of team 1 - 6 persons, will need to submit a 1 to 10-page whitepaper on or before 19th April 2021, as published on the website. Historically, we have seen many students hailing from HKBU seen great success in the IBCOL competitions around the world, so we would like to extend the deadline for students until 25th April 2021 to give them a good chance to participate and learn in a meaningful way.
Send the whitepaper to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject [HKBCOL2021_CompetitorID_Submission] and attach your whitepaper as [HKBCOL2021_CompetitorID_Whitepaper]
The whitepaper would need to include the student's proposed used cases in the industry of their choice. The attached document is some of our rules and eligibility and evaluation criteria for a proposal (not whitepaper), but still, adding these elements to a whitepaper would be a great reference for your students.
For more details of the competition, please visit https://2021.ibcol.org/

We would really appreciate your help in contributing to the success of the IBCOL 2021. Looking forward to their proposals.

Friends of the Earth (HK). Our organization would like to invite students who are interested in joining the environment sector or green finance industry to attend the Earth Forum 2021 on April 22 via Zoom. As we encourage human capital incubation and to support more youth to take the ESG journey, we would like to invite you to help with event promotion and distribution through the university network. Free registration will be available for university students. Feel free to have a look at the attached agenda for your reference and details below.
Given the background that Earth Day is an annual event celebrated around the world on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. COVID-19 has shown us the necessity of thinking ahead, our world needs transformational change. Friends of the Earth (HK) will demonstrate support for the environment movement and progress and organize the Earth Forum 2021 at Earth Day to debate on how green finance can catalyze decarbonisation and restore our environment.
