This year we will celebrate the Great Big Green Week at Kagyu Samye Dzong London with speakers from a variety of organisations.

We have been fortunate to organise this event in conjunction with SFI, Strengthening Faith Institutions who have also created a Sustainable Sanctuaries handbook with tips on how to create a sustainable and environmentally friendly Place of Worship.

This event is in-person only.
