PolyU is holding a series of talks under the theme ‘Together We Dream, We Fly’ to inspire students to develop their full potential. The University invites renowned society leaders to share their experience and pass on their wisdom to students.


In March, media professional Ms Janis Chan, who was selected as an Inspirational Role Model by the Touching China Awards in 2021, gave a talk on her highly-praised documentary ‘No Poverty Land’.

During the talk, which was attended by more than 500 students and guests, Ms Chan talked about visiting six provinces and the most deprived regions in Mainland China for the production of the documentary. She witnessed first-hand the progress and efforts made by the Chinese government to alleviate poverty and improve the quality of people’s lives.


Ms Chan has travelled to more than 30 countries during the course of her career, an experience she has found invaluable. She encouraged young people to explore the nation and the world, pursue their aspirations and make positive contributions to society.
