CHINA TIME 2022 Hamburg

23rd to 27th of November 2022

In challenging times, the need for informed dialogue on a professional, economic, social and political level becomes increasingly important. Taking place from November 23 - 27 in Hamburg, the 2022 edition of CHINA TIME will focus on the topical issue of global climate change. This year’s CHINA TIME sees the introduction of a newly developed concept and compact format, both of which align well with the event’s overall theme. Visitors can look forward to a rich and varied programme featuring three main events: the CHINA TIME SYMPOSIUM, titled “Discussing EU[1]China Climate Cooperation”, which will be held in the Town Hall; CHINA TIME CULTURE, featuring a wide range of attractions and highlights across Hamburg; and CHINA TIME WEEKEND, which includes a series of topical discussions and exchanges on education and climate change at the Chinese Tea House, Yu Garden.

Hamburg and Shanghai have established a wealth of strong partnerships over the years, bringing together public figures and other representatives with expertise in a broad range of fields from across both cities.
