Description:  

Prof. Jeffrey Dippmann from the Department of Philosophy & Religious Studies at Central Washington University will deliver a public lecture entitled "Contemporary Daoism & Environmental Preservation."

Environmental preservation and stewardship represent global challenges and these are perhaps more acute in China where its emergence as the second largest economy in the world has been purchased at terrible environmental costs. In an effort to foster new and creative environmental policies the China Daoist Association recently implemented an Eight Year Plan for Ecological Protection (2010-2017). Working with the Alliance of Religions and Conservation, the association sponsored the first ever pan-China Daoist Ecology conference in Jurong, near the sacred mountain of Mao Shan. This presentation outlines the principles and practical policies developed during that conference.
