History Education Hawaii, Inc., (HEH) the Honolulu-based nonprofit allied council of the National Council for History Education (NCHE.net) announces the ground-breaking strategic partnership with Beijing AmBridge International Culture Development, Ltd., in China.
"History Education Hawaii's mission is a unique one, for our mission is not just to promote history education in Hawaii, but also the Asia–Pacific Rim," said HEH president and cofounder Jeffrey Bingham Mead. "This first-of-its-kind strategic partnership with a trusted, reputable Chinese institution is a win-win for all. At no previous time in history has there been a need for Americans in Chinese to understand each other's histories. Our shared goal is to enhance Chinese and American understanding and friendship through educational and cultural activities through the exchange of ideas, perspectives and experiences with a focus on historical scholarship."
"Historians, history teachers, students and history buffs in both nations can look forward to new, imaginative and innovative partnerships," Mead said.
Based in the Chinese capital, Beijing AmBridge International Culture Development, Ltd., is a public relations and communications firm focused on establishing cross-cultural relationships, programs and initiatives between Chinese and American cultural advocates and institutions. It is the title sponsor of the Marvels of China: Pathways to the Pacific Rim Show that broadcasts weekly from 1490 WGCH/ WGCH.com, Greenwich, Connecticut USA.
"I am proud of the individuals and hard work that has gone into making this partnership possible. A rising tide lifts all ships, and we see benefits for Chinese and American historians, history educators, students and more. We look forward to expanding our outreach through online and imaginative modalities at a time of historic change in the Asia Pacific Region. With Beijing AmBridge's help we will have access to many of China's most reputable historians, history educators, schools and heritage institutions."
