ECOLOGY, ETHICS, AND INTERDEPENDENCE

The Dalai Lama in Conversation with Leading Thinkers on Climate Change

John D. Dunne

Engage with leading scientists, academics, ethicists, and activists, as well as His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Holiness the Karmapa, who gathered in Dharamsala, India, for the twenty-third Mind and Life conference to discuss arguably the most urgent questions facing humanity today:

  • What is happening to our planet?

  • What can we do about it?

  • How do we balance the concerns of people against the rights of animals and against the needs of an ecosystem?

  • What is the most skillful way to enact change?

  • And how do we fight on, even when our efforts seem to bear no fruit?

Inspiring, edifying, and transformative, this should be required reading for any citizen of the world.
