Welcome to the China-Britain Youth Association

The China-Britain Youth Association is a volunteer-run, non-political, not-for-profit organisation which seeks to strengthen mutual understanding between young people in China and Britain.

“The China-Britain Youth Association is an important and
positive part of the China-Britain relationship.”
Prof. Rana Mitter, University of Oxford

Our annual flagship Youth Dialogue event takes place in the autumn of each year. The theme of our inaugural Dialogue in 2011 was China-Britain 3.0: Sustainability, Innovation and Entrepreneurship and preparations are in place for the 2014 Dialogue.

The China-Britain Youth Association also runs regional branches in London, Beijing and Oxford.
