“Chinese Tradition as a solution to the Climate Crisis”

Interview with Resistance Radio

Emanuel Pastreich is the director of the Asia Institute in Seoul, Korea, a think tank that has made the environment and technological change in Asia its central concern. Originally a scholar of classical Chinese literature, and more broadly Asian literature, he has advocated for closer cooperation across Asia to address the profound challenges of our age. He is fluent in Chinese, Japanese and Korean and has recently published a book in Chinese in which he advocates for a new vision of the Chinese economy based in part on traditional Chinese ideas about ecology from Confucianism and Daoism.
