Club Launches New China Partnership Program


The Sierra Club took its own great leap forward on January 30 in Washington, D.C., when Executive Director Carl Pope met for dinner with His Excellency Zhou Wenzhong, Ambassador to the United States from the People's Republic of China, at a popular organic restaurant. In a formal dining room filled with Sierra Club volunteers, donors, and foreign policy experts, Pope shared the Club's desire to both learn and teach in China. "Along with the U.S., China and India are the most important nations in shaping the future of the world's energy economy," Pope said in announcing new programs the Club is developing in these two countries--the organization's first staffed and funded foray into full-scale international partnerships. The Club will collaborate with the Bejing-based Global Environmental Institute to strengthen China's environmental community and promote good governance solutions to improve air and water quality and invest in sustainable energy. A partnership program in India is expected to be be launched later this year. For more info, contact International Program Director Stephen Mills at
