December 2021 Newsletter

Dear all,

We are excited to announce that we are organizing NAEP’s first public Online Symposium, on 17-18 June 2022 on the theme “Diversity of Environmental Philosophies in Asia”. We welcome abstracts (200-250 words) for individual presentations, panels and workshops proposals (submission by email to, by February 21st 2022). Participation is free and the primary language is English, but we welcome suggestions in other languages. We are interested in a broad range of questions including but not limited to:

  • Can we speak of “Asian Environmental Philosophy”?
  • How is environmental philosophy conducted and practised in different contexts and traditions in Asia?
  • What are the influences of these ideas on the local ways of life?
  • What could be the role of Asian environmental philosophies in a global context?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities faced by environmental philosophy scholars in Asia?
  • What is the role of Indigenous knowledge in Asia to address environmental issues? 

Please share the Call for Papers widely. You can download the document and the poster from here !

If you have any question, suggestions, event, publications, call for paper, idea for projects or anything else to share, please feel free to contact us (!

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
