10 minutes | What differences I'm making in Guangz (Guangzhou)

Key words


It's not about the future or the past but NOW.

Nowhere else but right here, this uncomfortably hot and humid city themed with everyday pragmatism and money making, social canges and progress are taking place.

We bring the people behind them to meet you in person, as you are part of this city and you deserve the chance to take part in what’s happening.

We invite 3 inspirational speakers living and working in Guangzhou. They may be local, from other parts of the country or elsewhere in the world. Either in businesses or NGOs, they are entrepreneurs or individuals striving to make differences in the community.

Each of them is given 10 minutes to tell their personal stories, the beliefs they are holding on to, the problems they are working to solve and how you can get involved.

Yet that’s not all.

A special interactive section for you and them to discuss ideas and collaboration will follow.
