Europe Meets China: A Forum for Young Leaders (EMC) is a network of individuals who have an interest in exploring and strengthening the relations between Europe and China. Participants join the forum by taking part in a EMC Weeklong Seminar, following which they are encouraged to conduct their own research and organize their own activity in the field. ICD Weeklong Seminars are targeted at students and young professionals with an interest in the European-Chinese relationship.
Weeklong Seminars are held several times throughout the year and consist of 4-5 day programs of lectures, seminars, and workshops, together with cultural and social activities. The Seminars aim to give the participants an insight into key perspectives on, the European-Chinese relationship and to introduce them to a network of like-minded individuals, and allow them to explore the cultural landscape of the city of Berlin.
Once individuals have taken part in an EMC Weeklong Seminar and joined the forum, they become a part of the ICD’s network, which facilitates communication between like-minded individuals across the world. Members are supported by the ICD in organizing leadership initiatives and conducting academic research whilst they are also invited to join the ICD Online Forum - enabling them to share information and communicate with like-minded individuals across the world.
The next EMC Weeklong Seminar will run from September 4th - 7th, 2012.
