The country's focus on the upcoming "green" Olympics in Beijing underscores its efforts in this area which are critical to maintaining China's natural beauty, as well as supporting the health and livelihoods of millions of people. Agilent, a long-time advocate for global environmental and science education, is helping encourage attention to the local and global environment in China through it's sponsorship of the Clean
Air Challenge (CAC) and the recent Agilent Cup Youth Clean Air Knowledge and Skills Competition in Shanghai.
CAC is a non-governmental and non-profit organization focused on clean air education. It provides a curriculum for teachers and students that raises awareness of air pollution by focusing on topics such as smog, alternative fuel options and ground-level ozone. The program trains high school teachers on environmental topics and provides education resources and an international communication platformfor high school environmental education. Agilent began sponsoring the CAC workshop series in the U.S. in 2003 and introduced it in China in 2005.
Since that time, Agilent has assisted in expanding the program throughout China, helping educate more than 350 teachers and 3,000 in
environmental awareness through science education.
