WildChina Academy Speakers

Every month, we host sharing sessions with experts in their field that are dedicated to helping you foster a different understanding of China.

 In 2020, we’ve discussed food, history, literature, and more with the award-winning speakers you’ll find below.
At the moment, most of these sessions are online and you can join us live via Zoom or watch them back on our YouTube channel. We hope you’ll join us next time
