Reflections from UNLEASH LAB 2017

1,000 talents, 129 countries, nine days, one challenge: to create something that helps achieve the SDGs. For my group, that was SDG 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all. So much of this process seems daunting. 1,000 people?! What are we going to create? How will it be for strangers from different countries and cultures to work together? How can I even begin to make a difference toward achieving access to energy for all in just 5 days?

China's Green Leap Forward

Gray, smoggy cities and black manufacturing wastelands – these are the images that dominate international headlines about China’s environment. Heavy industry, the pressing need to generate energy and jobs for more than 1.3 billion people, and the systematic failure of adhering to operational standards has led to dangerous levels of pollution and environmental degradation. However, the need for more sustainable practices has not gone unrecognized by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
