ThinkINchina

ThinkINchina was born in the fall of 2010 as a monthly academic discussion organized by young scholars and researchers, who live, study and work in China. It is thought as an informal channel of communication between the Chinese discourse regarding China and the foreign community of researchers and students that are in Beijing for improving their understanding of China itself. Our core objective is to maintain an interface at which the expatriate and Chinese host communities can freely challenge one another's assumptions and work towards mutual understanding. We therefore prioritize discussion over one-way transmission of information and offer no-cost, open access to all our live events and online resources.

As our ecological challenges begin to multiply around the planet, we are seeking solutions beyond science and policy alone. While these are necessary to develop an awareness of the problems, we realise we also need broader humanistic and cultural perspectives as we seek solutions. "Ecological humanism" is a term that draws on evolutionary thought to suggest that we have arisen out of the dynamic unfolding of universe and Earth processes over billions of years. This gives us a perspective to be aligned with the creative processes of evolution. Moreover, Confucian and Daoist thought also suggest that the role of humans is to complete these processes in a manner that contributes to the flourishing of life. Our role then is to create forms of ecological humanism, namely mutually enhancing human-Earth relations. This discussion will focus on the potential synergy between evolutionary thought and Chinese thought in a way that highlights a positive path forward amid growing global challenges.
