China-US cooperation on climate change can break the ice

The year 2020 was a turning point in so many ways. A pandemic tested our capacity for international cooperation. Our impact on the changing environment became more urgent. That was demonstrated in alarming evidence of worsening global warming and, for the first time, human-made materials outweighed all life on earth. And the two major powers in the world, the United States and China, appeared to be locked in geopolitical confrontation, with commentators fearing they are destined for war, or at least a decoupling of their massive economies.

“Our Economy Has Grown Thanks to the Relationship with China”

The year 2020 marks a decade since the launch of the Free Trade Agreement between China and Peru, two countries with a longstanding friendly relationship, which is also reflected in their economic ties. China has been the prime commercial partner of the South American nation for six consecutive years. At the end of last October, Walter Martos Ruiz, who was then the Prime Minister of Peru, took time out to speak to China Today about his confidence that the increase in trade relations with China will favor the policy of economic reactivation promoted by the government of President Martín Vizcarra.

The Transformational Moment: Towards an Ecological Civilization

COVID-19 has stopped much of the world in its tracks. The pandemic has created what many hope history will remember as the Great Pause. We have before us, however, a moment during which we can turn this great pause, and the catastrophe that caused it, into an opportunity for a global re-set and the emergence of new hope for the future.

Working Together Towards a Sustainable Future

The COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged every continent and put unprecedented strain on our economies.

Let the Voices of the Young be Heard

THE power of young leaders to shape the world was dramatized in September 2020 when four youth representatives from Ghana, Malaysia,the Bahamas, and France were invited to speak at the high-level meeting marking the 75th anniversary of the United Nations. Sharing the rostrum with the Secretary-General of the UN, the young leaders implored world leaders to build a more just, sustainable, and less dangerous world. Championing youth leadership of such kind is the core mission of One Young World (a U.K.-based global forum for young leaders), and to that end we value our partnership with the InterAction Council and other bodies that ensure that the women and men who hold power also listen to young leaders. The COVID-19 crisis is a case in point.
