About Us

Our Mission

At the China-Europe-America Global Initiative (C.E.A. Global Initiative), we believe in the necessity to intensify dialogue between civilizations. Motivated by this conviction, we facilitate exchanges among stakeholders from China, Europe, and America, recognizing their synergies as a catalyst for global progress. We actively engage in museums (C.E.A. Museums Cooperation Initiative), philanthropy (C.E.A. Philanthropy Cooperation Initiative), the green economy (C.E.A. Net-Zero Transition Platform), youth initiatives (C.E.A. Youth Program), and think tanks (C.E.A. Think Tank Cooperation Forum), in an innovative spirit and with a global mindset. The series of cross-cultural exchanges that we design not only increase mutual understanding but aim also at fostering cooperation and value creation.
