The Business Confucius Institute at the University of Leeds welcomes writer, broadcaster & editor Isabel Hilton, founder of China Dialogue.
About this Event
In this presentation, writer, broadcaster and editor Isabel Hilton will talk about China Dialogue (中外对话), an independent, non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting a common understanding of China’s environmental challenges.
Isabel will explain what prompted her to launch the organisation in 2006, why it still matters and what has changed over the years – both good and bad.
With both COP26 (Glasgow) and COP15 (Kunming) taking place this year, 2021 will be a critical year for climate change and biodiversity.
Join us to understand the issues and the role that China is playing as a key actor in the future of our climate and environment.
