Global Conservation

China’s “environmental accounting” approach to ecological problems works according to the latest report produced by Natural Capital Project in collaboration with a team of Chinese scientists. To produce this report, scientists made use of a software suite called InVest which allowed them to pinpoint which conservation efforts yielded the most benefit from 2000-2010.  Known the world over for its heavily polluted cities, China is not always thought of as a steward the environment, yet this report demonstrates that their ambitious efforts have paid off. According to Standford scientists, Chinese methods of using science to make environmental policy decisions can be applied anywhere in the world.

What Our Students Are Saying

“I have been on three of Nancy’s Learn French and Travel programs. Prior to departure, Nancy offers introductory programs, where travelers become acquainted with each other and learn about the regions they will be touring. Before each tour, there is also a wine and cheese tasting where group members become acquainted with the wines and cheeses of the regions to be visited. Nancy’s tours visit buildings and places of historic interest as well as various museums. Nancy’s small groups enjoy comradery and good food. I have found Nancy’s tours to be both educational and enjoyable.”
