Ecological Civilization

While we need to protect half of the earth to restore the health of our planet, we also need to evolve our complex, contemporary civilization into one that limits its adverse ecological impact, satisfies and deepens our connection to nature, and meets the needs of human beings as a species. There are many projects thinking through the concept of an ecological civilization, but the most comprehensive is a contemporary Chinese framework for the future of human civilization that co-evolves in alignment with the natural ecology towards planetary health and harmony, which draws from China’s Daoist, Confucian, and Buddhist traditions.
