The SISC collaborates with the JUMP! Foundation on water conservation education

On Monday April 18th, 2016, The Shangri-La Institute for Sustainable Communities collaborated with The JUMP! Foundation (for information see their website here) and the Beijing Jintai Museum in Chaoyang Park for a social learning session based on water conservation.

The 9 students from Hangzhou and facilitators from The JUMP! Foundation and the SISC came together with SISC Vice- Director Philip Xie for the session, which saw the lines between educator and student blurred as the students took the stage one by one to explain their knowledge of various topics related to water conservation in China.

Have a look at some photos of the session below!

We hope that this will be the first on many collaborations with the JUMP! Foundation.

The SISC are grateful to the Beijing Jintai museum for providing their space for this event. The Jintai museum is a fascinating space established by Yuan Xikun, a leading artist and sculptor, and the Museum has held hundreds of events since its opening in 1997.
