This NCTA online seminar examined the lifestyles, behaviors, and attitudes of young Chinese adults growing up in a country that has become an economic and global power. Their development coincides with their country’s historic and far-reaching developments – what does this mean? Do Chinese youth aspire to a different future than their parents? Educators joined EARC Seminar Leader Tese Wintz Neighbor in examining the diverse lives of Chinese youth and explored together how this next generation might shape China’s domestic development and its trajectory on the world stage.
