Dear all,
Welcome to our new members! Thank you for joining us and continue to spread the word!

We are still looking for short presentations about the state of environmental philosophy in each country/culture. Please let us know if you are interested in writing a short summary about environmental philosophy in your country (about 500 words or less)

If you are have some information to share with the network (events, new publications, conferences, call for paper, etc.), let us know! We will share it on our website, mailing list and Facebook page.

– Call for Papers “Towards Climate Justice: Eco-Strategies for Survival” by March 31st 2020.
– Some of our members will speak about environmental justice at the Annual Conference on Asian Criminology Society, October 2-5 2020 in Kyoto, Japan.
– The Conference of Asian Contemporary Philosophy will be held in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), on Sept. 1-3 2020. Some talks will also approach Asian environmental philosophy. The Call for Paper should come soon.
Have a beautiful day!

Call for members

We are developing a Network for Asian Environmental Philosophy, to facilitate exchanges between scholars, and to make their work more visible. Our 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.

Would you be interested in joining us?

We plan to create a mailing list to share with each other new publications and events related to Asian Environmental Philosophy. If you agree, we would also like to add your name, interests and publications on the website (, so that other scholars can find you easily. 

If you are interested, please fill the form on the website (

The network is fully non-profit and based on volunteer work by some members. We use English as communication language, but we are very happy to include your publications in other languages.

If you know anybody else who might be interested in our project, feel free to share this information with them and in your own network.

Feel free to contact us if you have any question or comment.

Thank you very much for your consideration.
