April 30, 2006 - May 28, 2006
During the Honolulu, Hawaii portion of the program, Jefferson Fellows will explore the challenges that face the Asia Pacific region in developing energy sources and meeting the broader social, economic and political considerations that frame energy-related decisions. Fellows will also look at overall U.S.-Asia Pacific relations. The following 21-day study tour program will include site visits and meetings with government officials, business leaders, environmental experts and industry analysts in Houston, Texas, one of the world’s major oil and gas cities; in Sacramento, California, capital of a state ranked 2nd in U.S. energy consumption and known for its policies promoting energy diversity and combating global warming; in Seoul, South Korea, capital of an energy resource-poor country that imports about 97 percent of its energy requirements and where nuclear energy provides 40 percent of the country’s electricity; and in Beijing, China, where policymakers strive to fuel a booming economy and at the same time grapple with environmental degradation.

The Jefferson Fellowships, founded by the East-West Center in 1967, promote better public understanding of the United States, Asia and the Pacific Islands through a program of dialogue, study and travel for print and broadcast journalists.

The Jefferson Fellowships are supported by a grant from The Freeman Foundation.
