Training Future Leaders

GLOBAL CAUSE believes strongly in the importance of involving young people in our work with giant pandas. Effective conservation biology is a long-term endeavor that will require strong international collaboration. We sponsor educational initiatives that give students and their teachers from the US and China the opportunity to learn from one another and work together on environmental challenges.

Our Middle School initiative with the Bullis Charter School and the Dujiangyan Foreign Language Experimental School has been very successful. The students reach across different languages and cultures to work together and learn from each other.
