Welcome and News

The Network of Asian Environmental Philosophy (NAEP) was founded by a group of scholars in the field of environmental philosophy in Asia in 2019. Its primary goal is to support works related to environmental philosophy within Asian traditions of thoughts broadly conceived or related to grassroots perspectives on environmental issues in Asia.

We want to provide a platform to foster communication and exchanges between people working in Asian environmental philosophy. To achieve this goal, the network aims at exchanging and collecting information about ideas, publications, books, issues, etc. regarding environmental philosophy in Asia.

Currently, we are a small team of volunteers and two network coordinators in charge of the network’s coordination, website and social media management. If you are want to become active, or if you found something in need of improvements, your help is more than welcome! Please get in touch!
