Climate Change and Environmental Justice: Protecting the Future of Our Planet

with Bhikkhu Bodhi

Climate change may indeed be the most serious crisis facing the world today.

Does Buddhism have anything to contribute to our understanding of global warming? And can it offer any remedies?

In this program Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi will offer a Buddhist perspective on the climate crisis, an exploration of its moral dimensions, and an overview of the kinds of actions that we must take if we are to prevent wholesale calamity.

Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi, born in New York, has been a Buddhist monk since 1972. He is a world-renowned scholar and has translated many Buddhist texts from the Pali Canon into English. In recent years, he has turned his attention to the issue of world poverty. In 2008, together with his students, he founded “Buddhist Global Relief” (BGR) to assist people throughout the world afflicted with chronic hunger. BGR has launched almost twenty projects in South Asia, Central Asia, and Africa.
