“Ahimsa and the Environment” online event by Go Dharmic to lead up to this year’s United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), in Glasgow, Scotland, UK.
Go Dharmic, a non-profit organization based in the United Kingdom, is staging Ahimsa and the Environment to introduce and emphasize the importance of ahimsa, or non-violence, in addressing climate change. The event, expected to reach 2 million-plus people online, brings together policymakers, civil society leaders, faith-based organizations and the private sector to discuss this vital topic. This will give a further opportunity for Go Dharmic to promote non-violent ways of environmental protection. Adoption of the plant-based diet is a key solution that the entity encourages.
A letter from Hanuman Dass, Go Dharmic’s chairman, to our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai inviting Her participation as an honored speaker states, “Your work for the environment and fostering peace and promoting healthy, green living is admirable and inspirational.”
In addition to Master, who has graciously accepted the invitation, other event speakers include:
President for COP26, the Right Honorable Alok Sharma
Shining World Compassion Award Recipient, the Honorable Maneka Gandhi
London Assembly Councillor Krupesh Hirani
