For more than a decade, our websites and research projects have illuminated China’s relationship to the global environment, from its contributions to global warming to its innovations in green technology, across barriers of language and geography, so that diverse knowledge and ideas can cross-pollinate.

From the climate emergency to marine pollution, environmental issues concern all the world’s citizens.

Both the scale of its challenges and the size of its economy means China plays a uniquely important role.

With its expertise and rich experience in communication and public education, China Dialogue Trust makes real world and online dialogues happen – to promote and support perspectives that increase understanding, and inspire a greater awareness of the planet’s challenges.
