Those interested in China and ecology, please note this seminar in Helsinki on May 30!

Next week, our colleagues in Helsinki will organize a seminar China and Ecological Civilisation with Prof. Julia C. Strauss (School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) at the University of London).

The seminar is based on her new study on how China approaches forestry, natural resources and forest landscape restoration in developing countries. It should prove interesting listening for anyone interested in China and/or ecology.
