PKU-Georgetown Student-to-Student Dialogue

November 14 , 2021 11:45 AM by iGCU

Human society has created a glorious scene of progress due to the development of globalization, which, at the same time, has also produced many transnational problems. Among them, the issue of climate change has attracted keen attention and extensive discussion. Addressing the impact of climate change is not only the need to achieve sustainable development, but also an important measure of global governance. To achieve the common goal of the global response to climate change demands countries worldwide to strengthen exchanges and deepen cooperation. How do the young generations of China and the United States view climate change? Their attitude concerns the future of China-U.S. cooperation in the field of climate.

With that in mind, the Institute for Global Cooperation and Understanding (iGCU) of Peking University and the Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues of Georgetown University will co-host the "PKU-Georgetown Student-to-Student Dialogue". The purpose of this academic activity is to provide a platform for young scholars of the two countries to communicate with each other, promote mutual understanding, and enhance the young people of the two countries' recognition of creating a better future and better deal with future risks through open discussions on global climate issues and challenges faced by China and the United States.

The dialogue consists of three seminars on Nov. 12th, Nov. 19th, and Dec. 3rd. Attendees will include Dennis Wilder, Executive Director of the Georgetown Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues, Jia Qingguo, Director of iGCU, Wang Dong, Executive Director of iGCU, and Qi Haotian, Secretary General of iGCU, along with students from Peking University and Georgetown University.
