I was lucky to be invited by PIM, partnering with the Yenching Academy of Peking University to deliver an online series on Sustainability in East Asia. The series consists of 5 sessions that span across 2 months. With a special regional focus in East Asia, the goal of the Yenching Academy series is to offer a chance for scholars to dive deep into sustainability practices from different perspectives and to gain practical insights from inspirational field leaders.
My session took place on April 29, 2022. I was sharing the panel with

The Yenching Academy of Peking University
The Yenching Academy of Peking University aims to build bridges between China and the rest of the world through an interdisciplinary master's program in China Studies. This initiative brings together young people who have demonstrated a talent for leadership and innovation. At Yenching, they are immersed in an intensive learning environment where they can explore China and its role in the world—past, present, and future. The Academy's goal is to shape new generations of global citizens with a nuanced understanding of China.
The Yenching Academy provides full fellowships to its scholars, and offers them a wide array of interdisciplinary courses on China within broadly defined fields of the humanities and social sciences. Working closely with their academic mentors, Yenching Scholars create their own study paths by choosing courses from six research areas. They participate in a variety of extracurricular activities and field studies, organized by the Yenching Academy, and designed by scholars themselves. Studying at the Academy is an exceptional opportunity to take part in intercultural exchanges and interdisciplinary learning, developing both personally and professionally.
