RICH-Ed (Resources for Interculturality in Chinese Higher Education) is an Erasmus+ CBHE Project (2017-2020) which aims at supporting Chinese universities in creating a learning environment that empowers students and staff for global engagement. To this end, the project sets out to define a pedagogical approach for intercultural learning, and to develop learning resources for students and support staff that will be tested at the five Chinese partner universities and elsewhere in the Yangtze River Delta and North-East China.”


The design was inspired by the Chinese Tai Chi symbol, a design of two interlocking spirals representing Yin and Yang. In Chinese philosophy, Yin and Yang (dark and bright, or negative and positive) describes how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. The design of logo aims to advocate such a view that cultures, though sometimes seemingly different, are complementary, interrelated and interdependent in today’s globalized world. The design of the logo also highlights the purpose and goal of this project, that is, to empower the students and workplace professionals for global engagement by enhancing the capacity of Chinese higher education institutions for creating and sustaining learning environments. Instead of black and white, this symbol adopted blue to represent Europe and red to represent China, illustrating that this project involves extremely close collaboration and joint effort and expertise of educators and researchers from Europe and China.”
