Beijing makes welcome effort to promote dialogue

By Emanuel Pastreich | China Daily Global | Updated: 2019-12-03 00:00

The core principle for a dialogue between civilizations is mutual respect and an effort at accommodation, suggesting that we learn from each other for the common good of humanity. China's efforts to promote such dialogue, and to make ecological civilization a global movement, should be welcomed by all.

The world is facing an unprecedented crisis, an ecological nightmare resulting from a culture grounded in endless consumption and expansion. Moreover, we are witnessing deep social alienation that cannot be resolved by the standard tools of economic growth, free trade and technological advancement.

A growing number of people are becoming aware of the crisis. Yet the major industrial powers-those that have the most profound impact on perceptions and values around the world-remain hesitant to offer an alternative to the standard model of consumption.
