Webinar on ‘Racial Justice and Climate Action’ The Centre for Applied Buddhism (CfAB) hosted the tenth webinar in the series on Wednesday 28 July. 

This webinar will explore the ways in which climate change and climate action intersect with racial equity, and the crucial role that racial justice plays in terms of both environmental impact and solutions. We are very excited to hear talks and presentations from some remarkable speakers, including Jan Blake (Storyteller, Plenary Speaker and Storytelling Consultant for brands and businesses), Anita Okunde (17-year-old award-winning activist and public speaker, focusing on issues specifically surrounding intersectional climate justice and feminism), Rehena Harilall (founder of ‘Buddhists across Traditions’, uniting Buddhist and Mindfulness practitioners in service of racial healing, social equity and justice) and Peter deGraft-Johnson (AKA The Repeat Beat Poet, a Hip Hop artist and broadcaster working to capture and extend moments of time, thought and feeling).
