Pan-Buddhist Climate Change Declaration 2009

In the run-up to the crucial U.N. Climate Treaty Conference in Copenhagen in December 2009 [1],  The Time to Act is Now: A Buddhist Declaration on Climate Change [2] presents to the world's media a unique spiritual view of climate change and our urgent responsibility to address the solutions.

The Declaration was composed as a pan-Buddhist statement by Zen teacher Dr. David Tetsuun Loy and senior Theravadin teacher Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi with scientific input from Dr. John Stanley.
The Declaration emerged from the contributions of over 20 Buddhist teachers of all traditions to the book A Buddhist Response to the Climate Emergency. [3]

The Dalai Lama was the first to sign The Declaration. All concerned members of the international Buddhist community are invited to consider studying The Declaration and adding your voice by co-signing it at the end of the document [2].
