Comparing Air Pollution and Its Health Effects: Beijing and Mexico City
Nobel Prize-winning chemist Mario Molina gave a public lecture at Harvard comparing air quality issues in Mexico City and Beijing. Dr. Molina is part of a community of scholars joining forces with the Harvard-China Project to scientifically rethink strategies to reduce urban air pollution and environmental health risk, in China and beyond. In this video, we invited several China Project experts and partners to share with us their insights and research on the issue.
China's Environmental Challenges: Summer 2018 Undergraduate Research Assistantships
Funded by generous scholarships from the Harvard Global Institute, a group of eight Harvard College undergraduate students traveled to China to spend summer 2018 conducting research on China’s energy and environmental future under the guidance of English-speaking professors at Tsinghua University and Chinese University Hong Kong. This unique opportunity allowed Harvard students to learn about and experience China’s environmental challenges first-hand and contribute to research on potential solutions. Click here to read more.
Harvard-China Project Featured in Nature Index, with Video
The China Project is featured in the cover article of Nature Index, on international research collaborations. Quoting Mike McElroy and Bill Munger, the article highlights Project-supported research on the carbon cycle, based on observations at our atmospheric station near Beijing as well as other sites in U.S. and Chinese forests. Watch an accompanying short video that includes interviews with Munger and students Liu Jialin and Archana Dayalu on-site at the beautiful Harvard Forest.
