Kunming, the City of Eternal Spring, has long been known for its ideal climate and ethnic diversity. Now, Kunming is emerging as an important gateway city between China and Southeast Asia for regional trade and people movement across borders. Yunnan Province itself shares borders with several Southeast Asian countries (Vietnam, Myanmar, and Laos), and has many cultural and social commonalities with its Southeast Asian neighbors.
While in Kunming, you will take classes at Yunnan University, one of the top education centers in the region. The university, home to many research institutes focusing on cross-border issues, is one of the prestigious "Project 211 Universities," specially targeted by the Chinese government for growth in research and development strategies. Kunming has more international and Chinese NGOs than any other city in China, and the IES Kunming Center invites experts from these institutions to provide valuable perspective on key regional issues. While on field trips throughout Yunnan and Southeast Asia, you explore local and official responses to regional sustainability challenges.
