Why Cooperation Between the U.S. and China Is Essential for World Peace and Climate Solutions

Friday, 22 September 2023 @ 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM EDT

Living Earth Movement founding members John B. Cobb, Jr., John Perkins, and Charles Betterton will share a presentation on why the LEM’s priority mission is encouraging cooperation between the U.S. and China. They will describe how the organization came into existence, share their goals and strategies, and discuss how those relate to Peace Week.

Dr. Cobb, 98, author of 50+ books including the 50th anniversary edition of IS IT TOO LATE? A Theology of Ecology, will also share his vision of A Peaceful World As A Community of Communities.

The mission of the Living Earth Movement is twofold. The short-term priority is to get the U.S. and China to cooperate for the sake of all life on this planet. Without their full and joint participation, the necessary changes will not be made in time. However, with their joint leadership, virtually all nations will follow.

The second and equally important priority is to promote the foundations for a new kind of civilization in which humans would learn to value and cooperate with the rest of the ecosphere. We need a world in which humans understand themselves as part of a living earth community. We call this an ecological civilization.

Recent developments include monthly Youth Dialogues with American and Chinese Sharing from the Heart and weekly meetings of the Understanding China program that is developing a series of papers to help Americans better understand Chinese people, culture, and government.
