III Study Trip to Ohio

Bowling Green, Ohio

USA Nov 1-6, 2016

At the beginning of November 2016, in the final rally of the US presidential campaign, delegates of Global Bridges arrive in Bowling Green, Ohio, 82 miles southwest of Detroit and 180 miles north of Cincinnati. Why would one choose such a remote location? It is right here, in the swing state of Ohio, where no presidential nominee who later became president, has lost since 1964.  Since 1896, Ohio has picked the loser only twice.

V Chinese-German Young Leaders Conference Hainan, Haikou, P.R. China

Hainan, Haikou, P.R. China October 11 to 16, 2016

“Craftsmanship, Innovation, and Business Startups of Young Leaders

The days in Haikou, were a truly memorable and enriching experience:

First, the conference was an excellent opportunity to learn more about China, its culture and about Hainan in particular. The breathtaking speed at which China is transforming its economy and its society, for example, was very vividly illustrated by the contrast between Haikou’s historical city center and the local government’s ambitious future urban development goals.

Second, the conference was a catalyst for stimulating exchanges about Craftsmanship, Innovation, and Business Startups among its participants.

Finally and most importantly, the days in Haikou facilitated personal encounters – during the formal program but also various informal get-togethers (Karaoke, Chinese foot massages, evenings at the hotel bar) – which laid the basis for long-lasting friendships.
