The collaborative grants program was started in 2008 to stimulate new research on environment and health in China that is directly linked to policy and practice, to encourage collaboration across disciplines, and to help develop a network of scholars working in this field.
Each year 7-8 grants of $10-15,000 are given to Chinese institutes for projects that:   
  • integrate environment or health perspectives into research currently focused on a single domain by sharing existing data or conducting limited additional data collection
  • develop a new focus on environment and health within the context of ongoing research on development
  • broaden the scope of analysis through collaboration with partners who bring additional disciplinary perspectives or international experience; or
  • work with NGO or government partners to make existing research more accessible and useful.
Each project must address an environmental health problem that affects a substantial number of people and it must be clearly useful in generating or disseminating knowledge that will inform policy or the work of government or civil society actors.  In order to ensure feasibility, applicants must demonstrate the necessary access to data, or relationships with local communities or government agencies, to conduct the project successfully. If the project is being carried out at the local level, researchers must either live and work in the same province, or otherwise demonstrate how the project will build local capacity to work on environment and health issues.

Ethics, Human Conduct and Values: Slavery’s Pleasant Homes

Ethics, Human Conduct and Values:
Slavery’s Pleasant Homes
Slavery’s Pleasant Homes told by L. M. Child is a sorrowful story that presents a clear picture of how racism, slavery, marriage, and classism as institutions were used by Frederic Dalcho to oppress and humiliate George, Rosa, Mars and Marion. The purpose of this paper is to discuss, investigate and analyze all the major elements in the story and how these elements can be linked to the various characters such as Frederic and George Dalcho, Mars, Marion and Rosa. This paper seeks to investigate who is morally culpable for perpetrating the worst thing that humanity has ever encounter. It is also my goal to recommend possible power structures that can be substituted for those  which existed in the story. I also attempt to address current sexist, racist and classist practices that are demonstrated in the United States and how these practices promote and encourage oppression, male supremacy, violence, and the exploitation of the pow…

The Criterion Edition of the 1985 movie known as ‘Brazil’ detailed significant classical theoretical concepts of Max Weber. The paper discussed how specific scenes and dialogues in the movie are related to Weber’s view of the world from a theoretical perspective.

He believes that society will gradually become difficult and there is nothing that we can do to fix it. His theory was based on two ultimate themes which are reflected in his entire theoretical thesis: firstly, “the emergence of capitalism as the dominant form of organization in the West and secondly, the relationship between ideas and actions” (McQuaid, summer 1 Lecture, 09). These two components of Weber’s theoretical works were reflective…

The world is presently experiencing major changes that have been largely linked to anthropogenic activities and these changes influence the climate systems, leads to variations in the Earth's climate systems. “Global Warming” is causing many devastating changes in the earth’s global climate systems which also have significant implications on landforms, biodiversity, water systems, and atmospheric system. There is a need to take drastic actions now, if our species is to survive throughout the next 25 years. In order to continue to survive as a species, there is a need for us to become more proactive both at the local, national, and international levels on how we use our energy sources for a more sustainable future. A future that not only define our species, but also take into careful account our neighbors the plants, animals, water, land, air, and all those microscopic living and non-l…
