The Zukunftsbrücke: Chinese-German Young Professional Campus annually brings together Chinese and German young professionals from all sectors for a week-long campus. The aim is to build a solid foundation for  cooperation and to establish a strong network of German and Chinese leaders.

By discussing economic and political topics and socially relevant issues, the participants broaden their knowledge, deepen their intercultural understanding – and ideally build long-term personal connections. The aim is to promote responsible leadership and support the participants’ social engagement. This personal and professional network thus helps develop a forward-looking and sustainable partnership between the two countries.

The Zukunftsbrücke: Chinese-German Young Professional Campus is a project of Stiftung Mercator and the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt in cooperation with the All-China Youth Federation (ACYF). The project’s academic partner in China is the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS).
