Co-hosted by Yale Center Beijing, Global Environmental Institute and Woodrow Wilson Center.

Event Description

U.S.-China climate cooperation is a bright light in an often tense bilateral relationship. Have the two countries moved from a “Same Bed Different Dreams” kind of relationship to a common climate vision? At this presentation, Jennifer Turner—Director of the Wilson Center’s China Environment Forum will talk about the potential of new and deepening areas of Sino-U.S. collaboration that help both countries address their climate and pollution problems—from greening ports and capping coal consumption to conquering water-coal nexus challenges and building citizen science networks. Her stories will highlight the promise (and perils) facing projects involving not just high-level government agencies, but also cities, NGOs, and researchers from both countries. This talk will also feature Chinese environmentalist Dr. Kui PENG, who will give a short 6-minute photo-only Pecha Kucha presentation on his work involving grassroots climate mitigation and adaptation.
