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. Dialogue for Our Future will be an opportunity to evaluate global progress toward this goal, and to inspire individual and collective action.
Coming five months after the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Dialogue for Our Future, co-organised by the International Campaign for Tibet, will be an opportunity to highlight the urgency of action, examine the role individuals can play in transitioning away from carbon fuels, put a spotlight on the importance of climate-ethical behaviors and chart a sustainable path toward solving one of the biggest challenges that humanity has ever faced.
