China’s One Child Policy

Event Details

  • Date:

This month, we continue our talks about Chinese culture and traditions. The “One Child Policy”, introduced in 1979, resulted in most contemporary Chinese families having only one child. A special generation of single adults has become the backbone of modern China. Who are these people? Why are their behaviors and habits so different? Teacher Ben, an only child, will provide us with some insight, explaining the reasons behind the policy, how it has been implemented, the benefits to China and the subsequent changes to the population.
