Bo will visit Beijing Normal University, one of the oldest universities in China, where there are plans to build a new nature center. Bo will also be teaming up with representatives from the Nature Conservancy in the Sichuan Province – home of one of the last remaining Panda habitats in the world. According to the Nature Conservancy, the Sichuan Project “…will be the prototype of an innovative new way of protecting land.” The Sichuan Project will benefit the environment as well as help the people of that area by creating new jobs. Earth Charter Communities is spearheading the consultation with each project.
Bo will be sharing his 20 years of experience, ideas, and advice in hopes that it will help both projects started off on the right foot. – J. Sattari, ENC Intern
