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.
