Human life expectancy has increased dramatically over the past centuries. Today we can expect to live nearly 50 years more than in the 18the century. Better public health, better food safety, food security and diet are some of the main causes for the populations are living longer and this is in particular in developed countries a challenge. Both for families and for the health care system. This conference addresses this challenge and present different approaches from China and the Nordic countries. It builds on the long lasting cooperation between the 2 regions within food and nutritional care in the framework of Food4Growth. It gives forecasts of the nature of the challenge and its present different solutions that can address the challenge. And it presents outlines of solutions that we have identified to be the most challenging ones. The conference takes a closer look at the Nordic approach in relation to how eating, nutrition and food service can be dealt with in ageing societies in order to secure safe, nutritious, healthy and liveable eating solutions. It presents some of the promising results from the last decades of R&D in Denmark and China.

Background and aim of the seminar
Food losses and food waste (FLW) has become a worldwide concern in recent years and is widely identified as a key barrier to global sustainability. Consequently, reduction of FLW emerges as a priority on the global and national political agenda. Like in other fields of environmental sustainability, Nordic countries are the frontrunner in food waste reduction and related research. For example, a recent review 1 shows that Sweden and Finland are the 3rd and 5th in terms of the number of publications in food waste quantification and Norway and Denmark are quite active as well.
The rising food waste in China, the world’s most populous and largest developing economy, deserves a closer look due to its significant impact on the global food market, resources use, and emissions. In recent years, consumer food waste increases rapidly and repeatedly pops up in public debates on food security, human health, and waste management in China. Thus there are huge potentials for China to learn from the experience of food waste research and reduction in the Nordic countries.
This seminar is funded and hosted by the Nordic Centre in Shanghai, China and Fudan University. We aim to bring together active researchers and stakeholders from the Nordic countries and China in the field of sustainable food systems and food waste to share experience and discuss potential directions of collaboration. We will include researchers, practitioners, industry, governmental agencies, NGOs, and media representative to have a holistic perspective and maximize the impacts.

On Monday December 4, at 13:00, the Nordic Centre will show the documentary 'Tongue Cutter' (2017) directed by Solveig Melkeraaen. The documentary follows young Norwegian children who work as cod tongue cutters in Northern Norway. After the screening there will be a Q&A session with Solveig Melkeraaen, a rare chance for the audience to get to know more about the documentary and the director's thoughts behind it.
On Wednesday November 22. the Nordic Centre will be hosting Heidi Härkönen, PhD candidate at University of Lapland and a visiting researcher at Aalto University. She will be giving a public lecture on fashion legislation and intellectual property rights in the fashion industry.
On the 26th-27th of October the Nordic Centre is proud to host the international workshop 'Exotic Transitions in ions (ExTra)', held by Baoren Wei, Tomas Brage and Roger Hutton.
Exotic processes are important in diagnostics of e.g. plasma, but also as probes of our theoretical models for different ions. They are often associated with long-lived ionic states, which require new and innovative experimental techniques, or are unexpected from standard models, which require a thorough theoretical investigation. This workshop is intended to be a meeting place for different researchers in the very diverse field of Exotic Transitions.
Topics of interest
Hyperfine induced and magnetic-field induced transitions. Long-lived states in ions. Transitions in negative ions, Forbidden and unexpected transitions. Atomic/nuclear interface.

Welfare, Well-being and Harmony in World Society?
Cases on changing legal cultures from China-Greenland-Denmark
About Dr. Petersen
Hanne Petersen has studied in Denmark, Germany and Italy (European University Institute) and has had professorships in Greenland, and long term visiting professorships in Norway and Sweden. She has worked with China more extensively since 2009.
She is Dr. Jur. Professor of Legal Cultures and Head of CECS, Centre for Comparative and European Legal Studies
Welfare has been provided by local and indigenous communities as well as the state. In the 20th C. the Nordic states used legislation to secure welfare of the national populations. Globalization has brought more political autonomy to places like Greenland. Globalization, individualization and transition to service societies has led to more focus on well-being along with a shift to a stronger market orientation and to more precarious relations in labour, community and private life.

About the musicians:
Nordic String Quartet was formed in 2013 in Copenhagen and consists of violinist Heiðrun Petersen (Faroe Islands), violinist Mads Haugsted Hansen (Denmark), violist Daniel Eklund (Sweden) and cellist Lea Emilie Brøndal (Denmark).
All four members have a dedicated passion for chamber music, and have all chosen to put their hearts in the quartet. As an ensemble they enjoy playing the fantastic and various standard repertoire written for string quartet – such as Beethoven, Brahms and Schubert - just as much as they are intrigued by the corporation with contemporary composers. The name of the quartet does not only refer to the different Nordic nationalities of the members, but is also an expression of the quartet’s special interest in the repertoire written by Nordic composers, such as Carl Nielsen, Edward Grieg, Sibelius, etc.
Each member of the ensemble have taken their Bachelor and Masters education at the Royal Danish Academy of Music (RDAM), but in 2014 Nordic String Quartet they were accepted for the special Advanced Postgraduate programme for ensembles with professor Tim Frederiksen.
May 10, 2017 they will mark the end of their studies at the academy with a concert in the great concert hall of the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen.
During only a couple of years the quartet has gained a lot of positive publicity and has already performed at various prestigious scenes in Scandinavia.
Nordic String Quartet has performed together with the famous pianist and Yale-professor Boris Berman and the Latvian pianist Sergej Osokin. Under the name Nordic Piano Quintet they form a piano quintet together with the award winning German pianist, Marie-Luise Bodendorff.
In the following months the quartet will record the famous and much beloved Danish composer Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s string quartets on the DACAPO label.

It's not quite Nordic, it's certainly not Chinese, but we love Halloween, and believe it can bridge all cultures!
Friday evening we'll gather in Room 101 at 19:00 to watch a classic eighties horror flick. Dressing up is strongly encouraged. Also, please be there on time, as we need to keep the building locked at night.
After the movie there will be cheap beers for purchase, before those who want to head into town to the club Elevator on Donghu Lu, which is hosting a free-of-entry Halloween night with some of Shanghai's best dj's, the co:motion crew.
Let the Nordic Centre take you on a night of horrors!

Recycling the theatre classics: Ibsen, Strindberg and Shakespeare
A Lecture Performance
October 18th, 2016, 10 am–4 pm
Venue: Nordic Centre,
Register by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading Lecture Performance. Attending is free.
During the last decades Scandinavian theatre has evolved a discussion about different relations to the classics and about the representation of women in playwriting as well as on the stage. This development is partly based on an increasing number of contemporary female dramatists being represented in the repertoire. In a parallel movement classic plays by e.g. Ibsen and Strindberg are rewritten or deconstructed in order to question traditional or misogynist representation of femininity in the theatre. This leads to the interesting question of how contemporary gender constructions and performances differ from the ones that were typical of the literature and theatre during the so-called Modern Breakthrough in Scandinavia.
Our intention is to discuss and practically exemplify this issue. In the format of a performance lecture, including scenic presentation and lectures, we will theoretically and historically investigate and demonstrate how femininity is represented and gender is performed in relation to classic texts of the Modern Breakthrough and to contemporary Scandinavian and European performance art.
In this approach we will examine how two classic plays, Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare and A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen, are recycled and used as a starting point for contemporary narratives and performances.
Chinese author Lu Xun (What Happens After Nora Leaves Home?, 1923) as well as Nobel Prize winner Elfriede Jelinek (Nach Nora [What Happened after Nora Left her Husband?], 1979) has recycled the fate of Nora.
In her play Romeo and Juliet Post Scriptum (2013), recently performed in Sweden, Rome, and Edinburgh, Swedish playwright Annika Nyman investigates how Shakespeare’s romantic love affair could be adapted to and framed by contemporary media ideals.
In order to obtain a multitude of perspectives in our investigation, we will, with the help of the actors Maja-Stina Johansson Wang and Björn Dahlman, present some scenes from the plays discussed.
