Environmental Heroes of the Pacific Rim: How Grassroots Leaders in Russia and China are Making a Difference

As China grows at a breakneck speed and Russia rebuilds their economy, the Pacific Rim’s environment is increasingly threatened by reckless development. Join experts, including Wen Bo, one of China’s leading environmental heroes, to discuss the importance of the emerging Chinese and Russian environmental grassroots movements. Learn about the state of the environment and hear inspiring stories of individuals taking risks to protect their rights to clean water, fresh air and a decent living.

Speakers include:

Sibyl Diver, expert on Russian indigenous land rights and sustainable fisheries.

Daniela Salaverry, expert in China’s environmental movement.

Wen Bo, one of China’s leading activists and founder of the first student environmental organization in China.

Pacific Environment protects the living environment of the Pacific Rim by promoting grassroots activism, strengthening communities and reforming international policies.
