"Green China Rising: Film and Roundtable Discussion"
7pm – 9pm
"Green China Rising: Film and Roundtable Discussion" - China is by some measures the world's biggest polluter, and faces an immediate environmental crisis far more severe than in the United States. At the same time, China's authoritarian government is moving forcefully to try to address the problem through a development model of “ecological civilization.” The documentary "Green China Rising" takes a close look at China's environmental issues and its proposed solutions. The film will be followed by commentary by a faculty roundtable and general audience discussion. Sponsored by the Luce Initiative on Asian Studies & the Environment. Part of the 2012-13 Presidential Events Series, "Cultivating Service: People, Politics, Planet."
