Guest Lecture: Christopher Coggins, "The Ecological State and Ecological Civilization: Who Will Rise to Meet China's Global Environmental Challenge?"

  • Date: Tuesday, March 5, 2019
  • Time: 8:00 pm
  • Location: Valders Hall of Science, Room 206

With a bold commitment to build "the Ecological state" and develop an "Ecological Civilization", China's Central Government has laid the groundwork to lead the world with an exemplary national model for green development. In this lecture-discussion, Professor Coggins will examine the scope and depth of China's environmental problems, rapid changes in the country's environmental management institutions and policies, and how the international community might best respond to this unprecedented historical moment, when an authoritarian government, which guides the world's second largest economy, declares its commitment to a plan that could improve the quality of life on earth for generations.
