Dialogue for Our Future: A Call to Climate Action, will explore this question. In April 2022, join us online as the Dalai Lama and experts in climate and systems change discuss in granular detail the real-world actions anyone can take to help restore balance to the biosphere.
In his October 2020 book, Our Only Home: A Climate Appeal to the World, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama made an impassioned plea, calling on leaders everywhere to work together to save Earth from runaway climate change.
