Yenching Social Innovation Forum

Hosted by the Yenching Academy of Peking University, the Yenching Social Innovation Forum aims to provide a platform for young innovators from around the world to develop and share solutions to some of China's biggest social problems and complexities. It does this through leveraging the talent and resources of Beijing to create an educational environment for young innovators to learn from leaders in the entrepreneurship, policymaking, NGO, and venture capital sectors, among others. 


Applications for the 2017 Yenching Social Innovation Forum are now open! This year's theme "Dynamic Solutions for a Sustainable Future" explores issues related to climate change and sustainability among other environmental topics. 

The forum will take place from December 8-11th, 2017 at Peking University in Beijing, China. Round trip travel, accommodation, meals, and materials will be covered for all admitted applicants by the Yenching Academy. 

The forum will incorporate a range of interactive activities, including workshops, site visits, networking opportunities, and presentations from business leaders and public policy makers. 

Last year, delegates from 16 countries affiliated with 22 of the world's leading universities attended YSIF.
