School of Marxism, Zhejiang University, HangZhou, China

On July 11-18, 2016, the Eleventh Sino-US Process Summer Academy was successfully held in South China Normal University of Guangzhou city, Guangdong province, China. The theme of this summer academy was “systems thinking, the philosophy of organism and its significance on green development and innovation.” The goals of this summer academy were to learn about core philosophical ideas in Alfred North Whitehead’s Process and Reality and to learn about ways in which those ideas have been developed by “process” or “constructive postmodern” thinkers in relation to ecology, education, economics, family life, science, Asian traditions, and prospects for a 21st century Enlightenment integrating Asian and Western perspectives. The teachers of the summer academy are all top professors in the field of process philosophy, like Philip Clayton, Zhihe Wang, Paul Bube, Robert Mesle, Barbara Mesle, Fubin Yang, and Li Yang, etc. More than 40 students participated in this summer academy.
