Leading universities should play a leading role in tackling the global challenge of climate change. Tsinghua University has top talent in climate change and established the ‘Global Alliance of Universities on Climate’ together with 12 world-leading universities, including the University of California, Berkeley. We believe that by working together, we can make our due contribution to global climate governance.”
—Yong Qiu, President of Tsinghua University

The California-China Climate Institute’s Training Programs connect global business leaders with renowned thought leaders, policymakers and practitioners who are transforming the future of energy, climate policy and sustainable investment and development throughout the world.
