In addition to partnering for the production of multiple China Forums over the years, CUSEF sponsors and organizes groups of Johns Hopkins SAIS graduate students to visit China. During the most recent trip from November 17, 2017 to November 27, 2017, twenty students gained better understand the country’s energy transition. During the 10-days’ visit, the professors and the students visited Beijing, Shenzhen, Changzhou and Shanghai to engage in substantive meetings. Some of the highlights included the meeting with the National Development and Reform Commission, Energy Research Institute, Ministry of Environmental Protection, National Energy Administration, Bloomberg New Energy Finance, China Shenzhen Emissions Exchange, Shenzhen Energy Mawan Energy Plant and a visit to Tsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute where they were able to interact with the Chinese students and to establish friendship.
Creating Relationships through Education
Through our educational exchanges, we offer American students the opportunity to explore and grow their understanding of China. Our in-country visits enable students not only to experience Chinese culture and its people first hand, but to also gain insight into politics, security, business, technology, environment and the anti-poverty initiatives in China.
