China Hub

national Network
Region: Asia & Pacific

SDSN China Hub, hosted by the Institute for Sustainable Development Goals, Tsinghua University (TUSDG) and established in 2019, mobilizes its members in China and leverages their strengths to help realize the SDGs. Key focus areas include organizing monthly SDG information sessions with stakeholders to increase awareness, launching calls for proposals for innovative solutions from across the country/region under the Universities for SDGs13 competition, and renewing the partnership between Tsinghua University’s MOOC team and SDSN’s SDG Academy to encourage lifelong learning about sustainable development.

The Network Organizes an SDG 13 Student Competition

SDSN China Hub’s host institution, TUSDG, organized the national level version of SDSN’s 'Universities for SDG 13 Award' competition. The finalist, which was also selected for the global level competition, was a project titled 'Reducing Carbon with Carbon' by students from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The solution addressed the issue of graphite waste from lithium batteries and proposes the deployment of graphene-like nanomaterials from spent graphite for carbon reduction, thus changing the original traditional treatment method of incineration and providing a pollution-free, low-cost, and sustainable method.

The Network and Global Partners Evaluate Green Development

To drive SDG localization in China, TUSDG worked with BRI International Green Development Coalition and other global partners on ‘Research on BRI Green Development Outlook’ evaluating the green development among 139 BRI countries, which was selected by the 3rd BRI Forum for International Cooperation High-level Forum on Green Development as a case of multilateral cooperation.
