chinadialogue is an independent organisation dedicated to promoting a common understanding of China’s urgent environmental challenges.

Climate change, species loss, pollution, water scarcity and environment damage are challenges that concern all the world's citizens, and the scale of China’s problems gives them global importance. Tackling these challenges demands a common effort and shared understanding.

Here at chinadialogue we aim to identify, promote and support the unique voices (and the people behind them) that increase understanding, share precious experiences and inspire a higher awareness of the planet’s challenges, no matter whether these voices come from inside China or from around the world.

chinadialogue is devoted to making such voices heard by a global audience, in a lively, convincing and multi-lingual fashion. It is our hope that in doing so, we can move closer to viable, equitable and real solutions to environmental problems.
