Webinar: East and West Dialogue on Ecological Civilization

November 28 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm PST

Many people around the world, including civil society, scientists, youth, and policymakers are concerned about the future of our common home and the choices we must make today to ensure that we change our course and stop contributing to our current planetary crises. To do this, all decision-makers, including governments, the private sector, and individuals must come together to achieve our global goals for sustainability, justice and peace, guided by common values. Through this intercultural dialogue, we will explore what it means to work towards an ecological civilization and what we can learn from the knowledge we have and what we have accomplished so far.  

In this webinar Earth Charter will continue the conversation, started in the 2020 webinar series on Ecological Civilization, with the following questions:  

  1. What is an Ecological Civilization? 
  2. What are the possible paths and driving forces to get there? 
  3. What are some good examples paving the way towards this vision?

  • Center for Process Studies

    Driven by the principle of relationality and commitment to the common good, the Center for Process Studies (CPS) works on cutting edge discourse across disciplines to promote the exploration of interconnection, change, and intrinsic value as core features of our world.As a faculty-based research center at Claremont School of Theology (CST), CPS conducts research and develops educational resources that explore the implications of these principles on a range of topics (e.g. science, ecology, culture, philosophy, religion, education, psychology, political theory, etc.) in a unique transdisciplinary style that harmonizes fragmented disciplinary thinking in order to develop integrated and holistic modes of understanding.The CPS mission is carried out through academic conferences, courses, and seminars, a robust visiting scholars program, the world’s largest library related to process-relational writings, and an array of publications (including a peer-reviewed journal and a number of active books series).
