In yet another example of the immense popularity that Yoga enjoys in the world, The Yunnan University of Nationalities, one of the major universities in China has set up its first yoga college.

“The admission of this session will start from the month of September and the institution will try to spread Indian culture in China”, said a university official on Tuesday.

On May 15, the institute signed a cooperation memorandum with the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR).

“The yoga masters from India will be invited to teach different courses in this institution . Other than yoga, the college will offer courses on Indian culture and philosophy,” said a program co-ordinator.

The enrolled students will get the chance to study at the Morarji Desai National Institute of Yoga in Delhi and the qualified students will be granted international yoga training certificates.

The Yoga college will help to improve the relation between two neighboring countries India and China. It also aims to carry out a strategic plan to set up the Bangladesh, China, India and Myanmar (BCIM) Economic Corridor.

Amid heightened trade tensions between the US and China, tech giant Apple has joined hands with its suppliers to launch a $300 million clean energy fund in China.

The “China Clean Energy Fund” will invest in and develop clean-energy projects totalling more than 1 gigawatt of renewable energy in China, the equivalent of powering nearly 1 million homes, Apple said in a statement on Thursday.

“At Apple, we are proud to join with companies that are stepping up to address the climate challenge,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s Vice President of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives.

The Cupertino, California-headquartered tech giant said 10 of its initial suppliers have come forward to jointly invest in the nearly $300 million fund over the next four years.

“We’re thrilled so many of our suppliers are participating in the fund and hope this model can be replicated globally to help businesses of all sizes make a significant positive impact on our planet,” Jackson said.
