A cross-cultural analysis of Polish and Chinese tourist sensory experience and its use for marketing purposes

"I am a Chinese-European Economics and Business student at the Berlin School of Economics and Law and Southwestern University of Finance and Economics in Chengdu. The master thesis will include theoretical background regarding cultural differentiation, tourism marketing, and sensory experience. The hypothesis is that when travelers visit a certain destination (in this case Huanglongxi ancient city near Chengdu) the larger the cultural distance, the deeper and stronger the sensory experience. A survey conducted among three groups visiting the city (Chinese living in Chengdu, Chinese living far from Chengdu, and Poles) aims to measure these experiences and identify the major differences between them. Finally, the results will be used to design adequate marketing strategies targeting each of those groups."

Implementing "healthy cities": a qualitative study of policymakers' experience with fostering intersectoral collaboration to promote healthy cities in the SDG era

"I am a second-year student studying master’s in International Community Health at the University of Oslo. I received my B.A degree of Political Science at Dongguk University, Seoul, Republic of Korea. As a student who studied political science, I have a strong passion for working in the fields of health equality, global health governance, climate change, environmental health and gender equality. Currently, I am working on my master’s project which focuses on World Health Organization’s ‘Healthy Cities Project’ and the United Nation’s new global governance, ‘Sustainable Development Goals’. My current master thesis was carried out in Seoul, which is one of the biggest megacities in the world. Main aim of this research is to investigate perceptions and experience of policymakers in Seoul metropolitan area toward healthy cities and Sustainable Development Goals. This research also explored how local policymakers in Seoul have implemented the healthy cities concept to the local level to foster intersectoral collaboration to reduce health inequalities."
