The Living Earth Movement is partnering again this year with the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations (NCUSCR) on their annual China Town Hall on October 11th, 7-9 pm EDT 6-8 CDT 4-6 PDT.
The NCUSCR has a similar mission to the Living Earth Movement (LEM) based in Kankakee County, IL of Fostering US China Cooperation and Climate Solutions . The National Committee on U.S.-China Relations promotes understanding and cooperation between the United States and Greater China in the belief that sound and productive Sino-American relations serve vital American and world interest.
Current U.S. Ambassador to China Nicholas Burns will be the featured speaker for CHINA Town Hall 2023, a national conversation on how the U.S.-China relationship affects our communities. From trade, tech competition, and fentanyl to climate cooperation, national security, and anti-Asian racism, the future of both countries will be determined by their relations with one another and the global community.
The nationwide virtual conversation, including live Q&A, will take place on Wednesday, October 11, at 7:00 p.m. ET. As America’s top diplomat in China and one of the U.S.’ most articulate foreign policy experts, Ambassador Burns is uniquely suited to unpack the challenges and opportunities for both countries as they confront the most critical issues of the 21st century.
Examples of Questions for Ambassador Burns Submitted by Living Earth Movement Participants:
Many of us agree with Senator Bernie Sanders that there is little hope for any of us unless the two most powerful countries and largest economies join in giving leadership in response to our global crises. Based on your decades of service and experience in China, what recommendations and resources could you share with us to help achieve the goals we share with the NCUSCR for cooperation between the U.S. and China?

There are many Americans doing business in China and many of us regular citizens deeply concerned about the dangerous direction of American policy toward China with talk of war. A war with China would be catastrophic beyond our imagining. As a grandmother and Christian minister, I stand ready to do something creative and bold to work for peace and to begin citizen diplomacy of some kind. What do you recommend?
What is the rationale for (level 3) warning US citizen traveling for China when the only example of problems listed by the State Department are rare and mostly in the past? Don’t we want to encourage positive relations with China? My experience is very positive with personal relationships as a USA citizen with Chinese citizens.
