June 2021 Newsletter

Dear all,

We have exciting news! We are organizing a workshop on the Meanings of Nature in East and South-East Asia. This project aims to show the high diversity of conceptions of “nature” (and therefore of conceptions of humans) in East Asia and South-East Asia.

Please find the invitation with the details here. To facilitate the discussions during the workshop, we would like to collect draft contributions in advance. If you are interested in contributing and if you have any question, concern or suggestion, please send us an email as soon as possible (asiaenviphilo@gmail.com), and we will be in touch.


  • Get to know each other, encourage collaboration, and develop NAEP.
  • Online workshop around July 21-31. Fill up the doodle by June 20th!
  • Publish a co-authored peer-reviewed paper with the results of the contributions and discussions.
  • Feature each contribution on NAEP’s website.
