From the organizers:
This panel discussion is the second event in SGI-UK’s series of ‘Bodhisattva for the Earth’ webinars towards COP26, the most important international climate conference, which will be held in Glasgow in November 2021.
Following SGI-UK General Director, Robert Harrap’s talk on understanding the climate crisis from a Buddhist point of view, we have four speakers sharing examples of their climate action within the community.
Michele Lamb will be hosting Liz Lorente (Transition Town Marlow), Vieve Richardson (Marine naturalist/ wildlife photographer), Sharron Harrison (Gleaning/ community engagement) and Franco Zaffanella (Food production) in an inspiring discussion and Q&A.
This event is hosted by SGI-UK and Centre for Applied Buddhism.

One Earth Sangha offers a global list of events that express a Buddhist / mindfulness response to ecological crises. We invite you to join or add events that develop and demonstrate our interdependence with all of life! Events that address multiple issues (e.g., racism, economic injustice and environmental health) are encouraged. You’re invited to list events from your local sangha, including earth-oriented day-longs, retreats and even regular sangha meetings. We also want you to share demonstration and direct action events. You, the members of our Sangha, are encouraged to submit events, whether they be from the Dharma community, other faith groups or secular, where you wish to gather other Buddhist / mindfulness practitioners to participate. To submit an event, please email us.
This growing list of events will always be available here and in the main menu under “Get Involved.”
