One world, one ocean: Part II

Last episode, I told you about the COSEE-China Planning Workshop that was held in early March in Beijing. In this episode, we’re spending this whole time in the city of Xiamen where we flew to after the workshop. It’s in the southeast of China. They’ve got palm trees, warm, moist air. It was just beautiful. So, Xiamen? It was like Chinese Florida. We’re gonna meet high school students and college students talking about their experience with ocean education in China. And the change they want to see. Have a listen.
