When Henry Kissinger met with President Xi Jinping in Beijing recently, Mr. Xi is quoted as saying “Looking ahead, China and the United States can help each other succeed and prosper together, and the key is to follow the three principles of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation.”
The China Peace Initiative’s free, online seminars are intended to be an enjoyable way to learn things that you always wanted to know more about.
These are live events in small groups so that the experience is intimate enough to include at least some Q&A.
When you sign up you will be sent a confirmation email with the link to join. Because it’s from the comfort of your own home, you control the experience. Camera on or off, ask a question or not, give up and go to bed…it’s your choice.
Time slots for each seminar vary week to week to fit different schedules and time zones. Choose one that works best for you!
