he second ever Model CPPCC activity is in full swing. This year’s Model CPPCC activity pits ten teams of top students from China, America and Russia against each other in a socially-oriented competition to draft a plan to resolve social issues. The activity leads students through the processes used by the real CPPCC (Chinese People’s Political Consultative Committee) to identify and address social issues through policy.
Students decided their topics over the weeks before ACE
using our online platform to submit and debate different possible issues. During ACE, students work together to conduct online and community research on their issue, and then draw up a proposal to adjust current policy or create new policy to address that problem. The students have been busy, with many going out to conduct surveys or inspections, and with foreign students helping draw examples and solutions from other countries facing similar issues.Qiu Guoyi sharing his decades of experience with the CPPCC
