Call for Participants to the

3rd Global China Dialogue (GCD III)

Sustainability and Global Governance for Climate Change

China and the Chinese people are currently making an important contribution to the new world order and shaping a global society. What are the important global issues that concern China? What are the Chinese ways of thinking and doing things with respect to global issues? We provide a platform engaging both Chinese and non-Chinese in dialogue with China on a range of common concerns for the future of our world, including development, education, economics, migration, the family, the environment, public health, human security and global governance. The Global China Dialogue series (GCDs) focuses on these issues to enhance public understanding of current global affairs and common interests through public dialogue and discussion between Chinese and non-Chinese academics, experts, professionals and practitioners and interested laypeople, from interdisciplinary and comparative perspectives. The GCDs also develop the rules of ‘civilized dialogue’, encouraging both sides to listen to the other, understand cultural differences, respect local customs, accept different perspectives and acknowledge the common destiny of humanity. In particular, they explore new global governance, encompassing national governments, international organizations, multinational companies, NGOs and citizens, with a mission to building a harmonious, symbiosis-based global community. Two dialogues have already been held in 2014 and 2015, the proceedings of which has been published by Global Century Press. Below is the details of the 3rd GCD.
