The Event

Yale Center Beijing has always been immensely interested in climate change issues. To appeal to a greater audience in a more engaging way, we invited “Climate Fresk” representative in Northern China Hortense Hallé-Yang to bring this activity to the Center on Sunday, September 24. Climate Fresk is a collaborative workshop and educational game that aims to raise awareness and understanding of climate change. It is based on the United Nations IPCC report and therefore scientifically sound.


The Moderator


Hortense Hallé-Yang

Climate Fresk representative, North China

Hortense grew up in Asia, graduated in Chinese Studies and in Marketing-Communications, and has been working in Beijing for 20 years. Since 2010, she committed her professional life to sustainable development and environmental protection, working in NGOs and businesses. She is currently heading ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) for a European real estate investment company.

Hortense first discovered the Climate Fresk during a workshop organized by its founder, Cédric Ringenbach, in 2018. She was immediately compelled to contribute to its development in China. Since then, she has facilitated many fresks for both the general public and corporations and also coached facilitators.
