John D. Liu - Restoration Writ Large: Unleashing the Potential of Nature and People for Large-Scale Ecosystem Restoration

John D. Liu, a Chinese American who helped open the CBS News Beijing News Bureau in 1981 during the early normalization of relations between the U.S. and China, has since the mid-1990s concentrated on producing, writing, directing and presenting environmental films for the BBC, National Geographic and other networks. In 1997 he started the Environmental Education Media Project (EEMP) in China and helped create the China Environment and Sustainable Development Reference and Research Center and the China HIV/AIDS Information Network. His award-winning film Hope in a Changing Climate has led to public speaking engagements on six continents. Liu now studies and documents restoration worldwide and is on the steering committee of the Global Forum on Media for Development, an Associate Professor at George Mason University's Center for Climate and Society, and a Senior Research Fellow for the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
