GO China: Past, Present, and Future
China will help define the future of our world in the 21st century, just as it has done for thousands of years in the past. GO China: Past, Present, and Future takes students on a two-week exploration of the roots of the world's oldest continuous cultural tradition to see how it is lived by young people today.
Based in China's capital, Beijing, with excursions to the heartland of Chinese civilization in Shandong Province and the bleeding edge of economic development in Tianjin, the program will help students understand how this ancient culture can impact their world in the future.
