Current Status

Since we first established this webpage and set out to help organize Buddhists across North America to address the Climate Crisis (2015), circumstances have changed. The evidence is that Climate Breakdown is even more serious and advanced than we knew. At the same time the organized resistance among ordinary citizens has matured and become more successful and hopeful. There are a number of vibrant, rapidly growing social movement organizations working valiantly to sustain our collective future. We believe a larger contribution can be made by joining and supporting these groups than by putting energy into independently organizing what in most locations are small numbers of Buddhist practitioners. So we want to encourage any of you visiting this page to seek out local branches of one or more of these groups--and by all means encourage your sangha members to join you:

With you in the Dharma,
The Global BCAN Team
