The participants took the opportunity to exchange ideas with Professor Lin on the development of Chinese higher education. The discussion on the topic lasts for a couple days after the seminar. Scholars were fascinated by how much of the talk boiled down to concerns about environmental sustainability and the challenges faced by the Chinese.
