China enshrines different “Worlds”. It is one of the most important economies in the world and faces the challenges of the future with strength and competitiveness without fearing changes. Nevertheless, China maintains its precious traditions and draws energy and inspiration from its millennial culture. With 56 ethnic groups and some of the world’s oldest philosophy, China is yet to be discovered and has a lot to offer to international students looking forward to a rewarding experience.

During the two-week program of the Summer school, students will approach some peculiar aspects of the Chinese culture and learn to look at this multi-faceted country without prejudice or stereotyped images of its population. Placed between the Tibet plateau and the Pacific Ocean, the populous city of Chongqing, crossed by the rivers Yangzi e Jialing, is highly representative of the changes of the country, since China’s “New Deal” has been investing in intense processes of development during the last three decades.

This edition too will try to approach crucial issues such as economic development and the urbanization processes without forgetting themes that will delight students with the magic of this ancient country. The unsuspected relationship between Chinese food and its landscape or martial arts and peaceful attitude will be revealed.

Chinese worlds summer school will change your vision of life and open your mind to different landscapes.
