China's rapid development and Sino-American relations have a direct impact on the lives of just about everyone in the United States. CHINA Town Hall: Local Connections, National Reflections, is a national day of programming designed to provide Americans across the United States and beyond the opportunity to discuss these issues with leading experts.

 

Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski was National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981. In 1981, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom "for his role in the normalization of U.S. - Chinese relations and for his contributions to the human rights and national security policies of the United States". Dr. Brzezinski will give an update on U.S. - China relations via live webcast from Washington, DC. He will then answer questions submitted from participating cities.

 

Dr. Melinda Herrold-Menzies is an Associate Professor of Environmental Analysis at Pitzer College and The Claremont Colleges in the Intercollegiate Program of Environmental Analysis in Claremont, California. Her research focuses on conflicts around nature reserves and national parks in China and the Russian Far East. Other interests include environmental issues in China, conservation and development, gender issues, and California ecosystems.

Dr. Herrold-Menzies received her doctorate from the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management from the University of California, Berkeley, and her M.A. in International Relations from Yale University. She will speak on China's response to environmental issues and climate change.
