Yenching Social Innovation Forum

The Yenching Social Innovation Forum (YSIF) is a student-led event hosted by the Yenching Academy of Peking University. The Yenching Academy is an international Master’s Degree program established to foster a deeper multidisciplinary understanding of China and to cultivate a new generation of global leaders. 


The 2017 Yenching Social Innovation Forum seeks to bring together leaders in green entrepreneurship and innovative environmental solutions under the theme Dynamic Solutions for a Sustainable Future. As the impacts of climate change grow more pronounced each day, the need for renewable energy, sustainable development, and innovative social solutions becomes increasingly urgent. Often, government actors are cast as a singular solution to the complex issues associated with climate change. Yet, it is individuals who work within local communities around the world to promote a sustainable future. Our Forum will provide an opportunity for those on the frontlines of fighting for environmental solutions to exchange ideas, learn from pioneers across various sectors, build global networks, and develop successful strategies for China and the world.
