MRI Online Forum: The Interrelationship Of The "China Dream" And Integral Ecology
The Macau Ricci Institute is hosting the Online Forum: The Interrelationship Of The “China Dream” And Integral Ecology, on 10 November 2021.
ABOUT THE TALK:
The “Belt & Road Initiative”, “BRI” is inseparably coupled with the “China Dream” and the “World Dream” of China inspired by a common future of shared prosperity of humankind on this one planet earth. BRI has benefited ASEAN as China’s biggest trading partner, and further showcased by Africa and Pakistan. The new relational paradigm on Integral ecology challenges the technocratic paradigm of the neoliberal capitalism ideology on which BRI operates. Yet BRI is poised to countervail the hegemony of the west/global North by ensuring that the “ecological debt” of the global South be shouldered by the global North. At the same BRI acts as counterculture to promote integral sustainable development based on ethical principles, and international multiculturalism in the world while fostering greater multicultural solidarity with nations of the global South.
