The Green Sangha would like to thank Reverend Koraku Mikami, Ayako Nagano, Esq., and a lively group of attendees for joining us to discuss the nexus between Buddhism and climate activism. Ms. Nagano shared the recording and links from the “Ethical Practice, the Earth, and our Wallets” talk, along with other resources that she shared during the event.
Here is a link to the recording.
Here are links to some recordings that we didn’t have time to watch fully. They're worth watching if you have a moment.
