This year we will celebrate World Environment Day 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.

The theme of World Environment Day 2022 is ‘Only One Earth’, with the focus on living sustainably in harmony with nature.
