Sacred Earth Sangha with Dekila Chungyalpa
This is an online event.
From the organizer:
As the founder and director of the acclaimed Sacred Earth program at the World Wildlife Fund, Dekila Chungyalpa worked with faith leaders from all around the globe — in the Amazon, East Africa, the Himalayas and the Mekong region. For 5 years, she worked with four very different groups: Buddhists, Christians, Muslims and Indigenous Leaders on faith-based conservation efforts. It is through this work that Dekila identified a blindspot in the field of conservation, which mostly ignored the potential and power of engaging religions to address environmental problems.
Join us for a rare evening to learn from her breadth and depth of knowledge from the frontline of climate crisis, and the wisdom of how we embody compassion as we engage in this work.
This event is hosted by Sacred Earth Sangha.

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.”
