Study Abroad, China Project (Fall 2018)
Hong Kong, on the Pearl River Estuary, is the engine that drives the world’s largest megacity, according to The World Bank. Yet three-quarters of it remains natural. Lying in the tropics, there are over 100 species of dragonflies in Hong Kong. Guilin, a provincial city 515 kilometers (320 mi) to the northwest, straddles the Li River, in the heart of one of the most iconic landscapes in the world. Industrialization, agriculture, development, and tourism all rely on this landscape. These two cities are the bases to explore 21st Century sustainability in one of the most dynamic and rapidly changing regions of the world.
