Jointly launched by a group comprised of several ministries, commissions and organizations including Perfect World, United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization ("UNESCO"), China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Commerce, the program covers a range of projects, including but not limited to the long-term provision of financial aid for UNESCO’s World Scout Youth Forum and the development of young individuals as well as efforts in poverty relief.
As a business born in China and now as a mature player on the international arena, Perfect World has been shouldering and fulfilling its social responsibilities through a wide array of public service campaigns over the years.

In 2014, Perfect World further expanded its efforts in education and educational exchanges through a series of collaborations with UNESCO, Columbia University, the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico ("UNAM") and the College of Europe. At the end of 2014, Perfect World co-hosted "Traveling and Knowing China·Perfect World," a Sino-US youth elite project aimed at fostering talented individuals and engaging in educational exchanges based on international cooperation as well as providing ever improved and broader platform on a global scale for competent men and women.
