My Daily Sparks of Surprises in Stockholm

 

 

 On Aug 31, Multicultural Ambassador Xiaohui Wang shared her study and living experience in Stockholm, Sweden. As an urban planner, she graduated from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, has a unique understanding of city development, plan and design.

 

At the beginning, Hefang from Hangzhou Public Library broke the ice by sharing her personal experience in Stockholm Public Library as an exchange librarian. Her witty remark shortened the distance between the audience and this North European city, Stockholm.

 

Xiaohui ’s presentation, focused on sustainable development and art of public space in Stockholm through her professional theory and daily life practice . Eyes of the audience lit up when Xiaohui shared those tiny litter sparks of surprise which enlightened her oversea study period. Since waste sorting is widely promoted in Hangzhou, she introduced how the Swedes operate their advanced system. Talking of cross-culture experience, she displayed photos of the Swede’s leisure times on the ground of the funeral, which helped the audience to tell the differences of attitude towards life and death between oriental and occidental cultures.

 

 

The presentation aroused a warm discussion among the audience. Peter, a retired engineer who used to work in Europe, suggested that we should pay more attention to cultural heritage, especially to those architecture with hundreds of years’ history. Caroline, who have participated into Multicultural Ambassador Series frequently, was curious about how to become an Ambassador, and willing to share her story on diverse culture.  

 

我在斯德哥尔摩的日常惊喜

 

        8月31日,杭图多元文化传播大使王晓晖做客杭图,与大家分享了她在斯德哥尔摩学习、生活的经历。身为城市规划设计师的王晓晖,毕业于瑞典皇家技术大学的可持续城市规划与设计专业,对于城市发展、规划设计有着自己独到的理解和体悟。

 

        活动开始,杭图馆员何妨与大家分享了自己数年前在斯德哥尔摩城市图书馆的一段交流馆员的经历。她风趣幽默的开场拉近了读者与这座遥远北欧城市的距离,也激起大家对这座城市的浓厚兴趣。随后登台的王晓晖带领大家从城市规划师的视角出发,结合斯德哥尔摩的日常生活,分享了这座城市的可持续设计和公共空间艺术,将那些或大空间或小角落带给她的持续的惊喜向听众娓娓道来。谈起目前杭州兴起垃圾分类,晓晖详细介绍了瑞典成熟的垃圾分类回收系统。谈起跨文化体验,她分享了瑞典人在墓地边放松、休憩的场景,大家体会到东西方文化中对生死理解的微妙差异。

 

        听罢分享,一位多年行走他国的老年读者有感而发,“欧洲很多城市虽然没有太多的高楼大厦,但是他们注重历史文化遗产的保护,对于老旧建筑的保护值得我们学习。”另一位曾在法国工作的读者,则对“多元文化大使”系列活动产生了浓厚兴趣,希望自己也有机会来参与。活动在读者嘉宾的热烈交流中圆满落幕。
