Now is the time for the religious community to take actions to halt climate change

In conjunction with the 2nd International Conference of Inter-Religious Climate and Ecology (ICE) Network in Seoul, Japanese Network of Engaged Buddhists (JNEB) organized and sponsored a group of 9 civil society actors in South and Southeast Asian countries

In 2010, I journeyed to Chiang Mai for the 20th anniversary of the International Network of Engaged Buddhists (INEB). I had found INEB on the internet – proof

that technology is as good as the intentions we have to use it wisely. I asked if I could run a workshop on climate change.
