Tibetan Culture Helps Protect Environment

BEIJING, July 26 (Xinhuanet) -- Participants at the ongoing 2001 Beijing Seminar on Tibetan Studies said that traditional Tibetan culture could educate people to protect ecology and the environment.

Yang Shenglong, an official with the State Commission of Ethnic affairs, said that Tibetan people believe in a harmonious way of life which stresses the joint development between people and their surrounding environment.

According to their traditions, the Tibetan people love nature and are eager to protect various plants and animals, Yang said.

Rapid social and economic enhancement might result in ecological and environmental challenges for areas in which Tibetans inhabit, experts said.

Environmental protection of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau will also play an important role in environmental protection worldwide, they said.

People in those areas should effectively use land resources and curb pollution, Yang said.
