Chinese Environmentalism


I spent three weeks in China in October of this year with a Gulf Coast delegation studying the role of environmental NGOs/civil society  in Chinese politics (See photo album ‘October in China’. This documentary, The Warriors of Qiugang is an excellent window into the struggles of Chinese environmentalists as they work to combat polluting industries. I wish I could say that the Chinese example is an extreme….but I live here.

Warriors of Qiugang was just nominated for the Academy Award for best short documentary. You can watch it for free over at Yale Environment 360, which co-produced the film. Link here. }
