New Book on Environmental Ethics

The Buddhist Institute released a new publication entitled "Toward an Environmental

Ethic in Southeast Asia". The English-language publication is a summary of proceedings

from a seminar of the same name held last November in Phnom Penh.

The seminar brought together representatives from six Southeast Asian countries and

Sri Lanka. According to the publication's introduction, the seminar "focused

on moral-religious prespectives and initiatives on the environment and environmental

crisis in Southeast Asia as a means toward developing an environmental ethic for

the region."

The book is on sale at the Buddhist Institute for $20 and all proceeds will be used

to support the Institute's Environmental Ethics in Southeast Asia Project.
