The Beijing Cultural Heritage Protection Center (CHP) is an independent Chinese NGO who supports communities to protect their cultural heritage throughout China. Our work is vital because China’s rapid development and social change is dramatically affecting its cultural landscape. CHP gives Chinese people a voice to protect the future of their past through capacity building, education, training, networking and support. Our belief is that people make change. CHP’s main focus areas are cultural heritage protection and civil society building, ethnic minority cultural revitalization and media mobilization. From cooking classes to heritage tours, informative discussions to hutong carnivals, CHP offers a wide range of events and activities.

CHP isn’t for every visitor. If you need a pristine tourist center in a new “historic” building, forget it. This is a small organization that’s working to save the China some of us came to see. They aren’t anti-progress. They just don’t buy the idea that a great nation has to rip up its cultural fabric in order to modernize.... More

CHP is filled with great folks who are fun to talk to and very knowledgeable about their area of focus. There is much to learn from each and everyone there. I will definitely recommend this. Next time there's an event, count me in!

I spent a year at the Beijing Cultural Heritage Protection Centre and highly recommend it. CHP is doing amazing work raising awareness and preserving cultural heritage not only in Beijing but around China. Not only this, but the staff and volunteers behind CHP are dedicated, passionate, knowledgeable, and great people to be involved with if you ever have the opportunity!
