Jinan

Jinan is one of the most population dense areas of China with approximately 6 million people living in an area of just 8177.21km2. Half of this population resides within the six urban districts, Shizhong, Lixia, Huaiyin, Tianqiao, Licheng and Changqing. The remainder inhabit the three city districts and the district-free city. Jinan is also the capital of Shandong Province, located in Eastern China. Jinan is located along the Yellow River, which changed its course in 1855. Due to this, the Yellow River conjoined with the river Ji, which provides Jinan with a landscape of watery canals and lush, green gardens. It further boasts over 90 springs, one of which is the more than 3500 year olrd Baotu Spring. Only a few kilometres away from the city is the Tai Shan, the Holy Mountain. The drastic change in altitude, 1545 meters, is breathtaking and a physical challenge.

Consequently, we are looking forward to crest this mountain together with some students of Shandong University. Furthermore we will visit these students at their university and are going to participate in some workshops and lectures. Additionally, we will give a presentation about our home country. We will also be visiting DIEHL Hydrometer, a company known worldwide for its electricity, gas and water technologies.
