SACU’s Essay/Art Competition
This event launches the 5th year of SACU’s Essay/Art Competition held jointly with Peking University each year since SACU commemorated its 50th anniversary in 2015. The aim of the competition is to help young people learn about the development of friendship and understanding between the UK and China and to consider how this might be further promoted.


“China in the World” talks
This year, in addition to the competition, in order to enhance the younger generation’s understanding of China, we would like to offer talks to the schools under the title of “China in the World”. Members of our Speakers Bureau are all established writers and speakers on China with many years’ experience of living and working in the Chinese world. It is hoped that these talks on China will offer thoughtful and insightful perspectives to the students, who may be interested not only in the competition but in the promotion of UK-China relationships in the future.
