Big Power Responsibility

Climate change is perhaps the most crucial issue facing the world today. As the world’s dominant powers, the U.S. and China have a tremendous influence and impact on global responsibility for climate change, any substantial change we might see on the global scale must be born out of the collaboration between the two countries. How can the two largest industrialized nations work together to address the issues of climate change globally? How can they work to address the unique issues relevant to each country?

We’ve invited various experts from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the University of Denver, and Tsinghua University, to present their research and opinions relating to the best methods that each country can take to tackle climate change. Join us as we hear more about how the US and China can collaborate to address climate change for the better of the world.

This event is in partnership with the University of Denver, Josef Korbel School of international studies; the Center for China United States Cooperation; and the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Big Power Responsibility webinar is part of USHCA’s ongoing series, The Way Forward, where we discuss different ideas and initiatives used by the U.S. and China and how they can be applied to the Heartland region.
