      • To help individuals and communities understand:
      • the connection between consciousness and the state of the planet;
      • how self transformation and action based on spiritual values, such as non-violence and respect, contribute to a change in the environment;
      • how to enable lasting changes in lifestyle .
      Aim of the BK Environment Initiative (1)
      • To encourage BKs and centres to develop eco-friendly attitudes, actions and running of centres.
      • The BKs already contribute actively to the protection of the environment with a very sustainable lifestyle:
      • - little waste,
      • - vegetarianism,
      • - simplicity and economy,
      • - respect of nature and……

      • Did you know that intensive animal breeding:
      • produces more green-house gas emissions than the whole world transport systems (planes, trains, cars, etc.)
