Who We Are

China House

is an independent educational social enterprise that aims to further integrate China into global sustainable development efforts through youth engagement. 

Born out of Columbia University’s Development Practice Incubator in 2014, China House has engaged over 2,000 young people in Project-Based Learning (PBL) and global citizenship education programs. Although our programs mainly cater to Chinese youth, we also welcome international youth with a keen interest in China to join our program and community.  

In detail, China House works closely with world-renowned global research institutions, NGOs, and private enterprises on research, conservation and development projects. China House also develops educational programs for our students based on such partnerships.

Due to its unique position and impactful work in over 20 countries across 4 continents so far, China House has been in the spotlight of both Chinese and international media.


The founder, Mr. Huang Hongxiang 黄泓翔, was nominated in 2018 Forbes 30under30 list and was featured in an Oscar-shortlisted documentary, The Ivory Game. He was recognized as a “hero of wildlife conservation” by UN Peace Ambassador Dr. Jane GoodallHuang also serves as a global ambassador for Columbia University’s Development Practice program among other prestigious alumni.
