This September 15th-18th concluded the 5th Project Pengyou Leadership Training Summit, where 45 dedicated and passionate young US-China bridge-builders from schools around the US spent 4 intensive days at Harvard honing their leadership skills. This year, they had their largest cohort ever, with 45 students from 42 colleges, high schools and universities as well as 13 Fellow alumni and supporters returning as coaches, trainers, and volunteers.
They were also thrilled to invite 5 wonderful guest speakers and performers, including distinguished Harvard Professor Dr. Graham Allison, Executive Director of the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies Dan Murphy, Pulitzer Prize winning news correspondent David Barboza, and the award-winning bluegrass duo Abigail Washburn and Wu Fei. They not only shared their stories with China to the leadership fellows, but discussed the important of continuing exchange and engagement between the two world powers.
