Elite young Chinese scholars to visit Iowa County Economic Development and the Wisconsin Innovation Kitchen
We especially look forward to discussing our economic development work with local foods and regional food systems at the Wisconsin Innovation Kitchen.
This effort can make significant contributions to environmental and public health issues.
Here are some quotes from the ENCSS web site (below)...
"Fifty elite Chinese sophomores and juniors with 'Key High School' status will take part in an environmental research and enrichment program in the Midwest this summer."
"The 18-day program -- now planned for Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois – will unite the Chinese students and some of their teachers with American peers for the program established by the Environment and Public Health Network for Chinese Students and Scholars (ENCSS), headquartered at the University of Wisconsin-Madison."
"The Environment & Public Health Network for Chinese Students and Scholars (ENCSS) is a network that connects students, scholars, business, and government institutions in China, U.S. and other countries to improve the environment and public health. We share knowledge, opportunity, resources, and responsibility by facilitating collaboration, sustainable relationships and the development of people and organizations."
It is my understanding that our visitors will be from Key High Schools in Beijing, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shandong, Guangdong, and Hubei.
I look forward to joining this wonderful conversation. I believe environmental, public health, and economic development issues are closely tied together. If the world can improve these collaboratively and sustainably, this century will be ranked among the most positive in history.
I can't wait to meet our young scholars from China! Welcome!
