The British Council and Red Ochre have teamed up with China Youth Development Foundation (CYDF), a leading Chinese Foundation and a number of Chinese universities* to put together a session for visiting students from China to work closely with UK students.

We are looking for entrepreneurial undergraduate and post-graduate students to take part in the day.

The day will look like:

  • Introductions – to the day and programme
  • Brainstorming on the topic, or range of problems (social and/or environmental)
  • Work within mixed groups of UK and China-based students to develop a solution/project/pilot programme that incorporates both China and the UK
  • Each group presents their solution
  • Prizes awarded!

In addition, there will be follow-up support available for those wishing to pursue their ideas further in the form of webinars and telepresence conferencing and facilitated brain trusts.

Other forms of support may also be available.
