Transitioning to an Ecological Civilisation: East

Course dates: 
Sunday, 18 June, 2017 to Friday, 30 June, 2017
Travel to various locations in China (Beijing, Chongqing and Chengdu Province), in collaboration with the Institute of Rural Reconstruction at Southwest University where you will experience first-hand the culture and ecology of China and have an opportunity to dialogue with intellectuals and activists about what creating an ecological civilisation means in contemporary China. We will visit inspiring projects as well as exploring the cultural and ecological roots to traditional Chinese wisdom rooted in Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism.  Participants will be introduced to the ancient holistic philosophy and practice of cultivating inner strength for outer action and have the unique opportunity to visit sacred places and monasteries related to modern day practices of these ancient holistic traditions.
Participants will explore the New Rural Reconstruction Movement and its one hundred year history.  This is the biggest yet peaceful social movement in China with several organisations and tens of thousands of volunteers.  The movement provides an alternative to American capitalism and Russian socialism and grows out of a strong intellectual and social heritage that has particular relevance to creating an ecological civilisation in contemporary China. 
The learning journey will take place in 3 locations.  In Beijing we will learn about the political, economic, social and cultural evolution based on Chinese history and crises we have experienced.  We will be introduced to Chinese holistic philosophy about life, in connection with society and nature. 
We will then take a slow train journey through central China to Chongqing in the Southwest.  Here we will explore the values and ideas underpinning the new rural reconstruction movement (and its rich history) and visit projects to see what it looks like in practice – from small scale renewable energy technologies to community supported agriculture. 
The third and final part of our journey takes place in Chengdu, Sichuan Province.  Here we will explore the cultural and ecological origins of traditional Chinese wisdom rooted in Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism.  Participants will be introduced to the ancient holistic philosophy and practice of cultivating inner strength for outer action. We will have a rare opportunity to visit sacred places and monasteries related to modern day practice of Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism and consider what these holistic practices and methodologies can mean for the evolution to an ecological civilisation.
This is an educational experience that will appeal to community activists, NGO’s, students, researchers, policy makers and entrepreneurs interested in cross-cultural dialogue;  exchanging holistic theory and practice east and west, towards creating a global movement transitioning to an ecological civilisation.
The following areas will be included:
  • Exploring current and historical crises in China
  • Mapping the story of rural reconstruction as a social movement towards transitioning to an ecological civilisation
  • Field visits to local rural reconstruction projects and participating in rural life
  • Experiencing participatory processes with village groups (including seasonal calendars linking with climate change; and dream mapping)
  • Dialogue with intellectuals and activists in the Rural Reconstruction Movement
  • Re-valuing indigenous culture and traditional knowledge and its links to ancient ecological and holistic thinking and practices rooted in Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism
  • Experiencing holistic practices for inner cultivation (such as calligraphy, TaiQi, and traditional tea ceremonies)
  • Visiting sacred landscapes; holistic and ecological technologies and community living at an Eco-Taoist Monastery in the Qingcheng Mountains
  • Synthesis, dialogue and sharing towards creating an ecological civilisation: East and West
  • Developing seeds for new transition inspired initiatives in your own area
On Line Study:
  • Preparatory readings and resources
  • Steps and resources for setting up a project in your own area
  • Developing action plans for project development
  • On-line study, films and discussion forum
  • Peer to peer support


Julie Richardson
Julie has taught ecological economics and international development at the Universities of London and Sussex and has worked in sustainable development for over 20 years in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe. This experience changed her view of ‘development’ – believing there is much we can learn from the wisdom of other cultures about sustainable livelihoods and restoring healthy relationship between human society and nature. Julie has created a synthesis between modern holistic science (including systems thinking and complexity science) and ancient holistic thinking in China to explore what health and wholeness means at different levels of scale (individual, community and planetary).   She is currently interested in exploring the links between modern holistic science and indigenous holistic science to explore what this means in practice for creating an ecological civilisation, east and west.
