Event Details

Event Description

The leaders will discuss both Chinese and western opinions on how to raise healthy, happy, creative children. How much should children play, and how much should they study? How can we teach young children to be moral, and what lessons should we teach them? How should parents balance the need for children to enjoy childhood with the need for children to prepare for competitive future realities? What programs exist to promote healthy, vibrant young people?

Yale Center Beijing wishes to thank Avenues: The World School for their generous support of the event.


The language of the event will be English, with simultaneous translation into Chinese.
