The Role of Civil Society in Protecting China’s Environment

April 19 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm

Scholars from around the world will converge on the UCLA School of Law to explore recent developments in Chinese environmental law and governance that are sure to have global ramifications. In concert with an all-day symposium, the Emmett Institute and others are also co-hosting a lunchtime talk on the role of civil society in protecting China’s environment.

The focus of global attention in recent years has been on China’s top-down, state-driven approach to environmental protection and “ecological civilization.” What role is there for China’s civil society groups these days? How do they approach their work? What are the opportunities and risks involved? Several of China’s leading environmental advocates will join to discuss this important topic. Lunch will be provided.
