Chinese New Year Celebration
January 26 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Come celebrate the Chinese New Year and traditional Chinese music. “China and the environment” will be the theme of an overview of China’s environmental policy by Duncan McFarland. A powerpoint presentation by Mary Klug entitled “China and the Environment: Chinese People Care” will describe her experiences working with the Chinese people on environmental sustainability with the Pachamama Alliance.
Zhantao Lin will perform traditional Chinese music on the erhu, a two-stringed bowed musical instrument. Zhantao is a renowned performer and teacher and a member of the Chinese Musicians Association. He has performed broadly, including the MFA, Peabody Essex Museum and Lincoln
Center. In 2019 he was awarded the title, Blodgett Visiting Artist by the Harvard Music Department.
Speakers: Mary Klug and Duncan McFarland; both have many visits and long ties to China. A better understanding of rising China is critical in today’s world and building personal relationships is imperative, especially as tensions increase between the governments.
Pachamama Alliance is a global community that offers people the chance to learn, connect, engage, travel and cherish life for the sustainable future that works for us all. With roots deep in the Amazon rainforest, the programs integrate indigenous wisdom and modern knowledge to support
personal and collective transformation, and environmental protection.
