Uni To Kick Habit

WON’T SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE SMOKERS!?

Victoria University is seeking feedback on its proposed smoke free policy. Students are able to answer a survey on the changes until August 27.

The changes would prohibit smoking anywhere on the University’s campuses, including the Hunter Lounge balcony and outside Milk and Honey, currently both popular areas for smokers.

If the University does decide to go ahead with the changes, it is likely that they will be implemented at the beginning of 2013. Victoria would be following in the footsteps of Auckland University which has been smoke free since 2010, and AUT earlier this year.

The survey closes on August 27, and focus groups will be held in the preceding week. Details about the survey, focus groups, and the proposed changes can be found at http://goo.gl/EM0o0

In the Shadow of the Kowloon Walled City

: At its peak, the Kowloon Walled City was home to 33,000 people in just two hectares of land—a hastily put together conglomerate of tiny apartments, one of top of the other, caged balconies slapped onto the sides and connected through a labyrinth of damp, dark corridors.
