 LEAD-China Introduction

LEAD-China Orientation Session for Cohort-10 (9 -17 Nov., 2002 Beijing)

1. Session Objectives

This is LEAD-China orientation session for cohort-10 that will be held from 9-17 Nov. this year at Beijing Dangdai Service Center. As the associates come from different regions and sectors with diverse culture and background, this session is designed to bring the associates onto the common communication ground so as to make best use of LEAD as a learning opportunity. The resource persons of this session include LEAD-China core faculty members and training officers and experts in various fields related to sustainable development.

The experts invited to speak at LEAD session all have innovative views of the sustainable development. Their views may not agree with each other and possibly disagree with the views of the Associates. But they serve as a catalysts to stimulate our thinking and our critics, as LEAD believes that we can improve ourselves through understanding and analyzing differences.
