Investigation on the Power Source of Public Participation in Environmental Issues in China

Meng TANG, Siwei SONG


Why can the public participate in environmental issues? What is the motive for them to do so? When we specify environment resources with benefits and focus on the real motivation created after that, the reason for Chinese public participation in environmental issues forwardly is clear. Furthermore, this paper also points out the process that the public taking part in the environmental issues and resolving living problems together is a mechanism of social study as well as a process for improving the quality of democracy.
