Workshop: China’s Environmental Challenges: Domestic and Global Implications
February 22, 2017 - 09:15-17:00
This workshop discusses the domestic and global aspects of China’s environmental challenges. It provides insights into individual perceptions, behaviors and realities in both rural and urban China, as well as addresses different policies and government actions. The scholars pay attention to how environmental issues are related to inequalities in society, and how individuals, communities and local governments work to raise awareness and change the situation. Two of the presentations deal with the global implications of China’s pollution analyzing Japan’s reactions and how Chinese investment in Ghana affect its environment. A documentary film will be screened that provides an overview to Chinese environmental activism.
