Were you able to join Mind & Life’s event with the Dalai Lama and Greta Thunberg live? If not, a recording of their conversation with leading scientists on the crisis of climate feedback loops is now available on our website. To learn more, please view the 5-part short-film series “Climate Emergency: Feedback Loops,” narrated by Richard Gere.
We can still reduce global warming and restore the planet’s health—it’s not too late! Here’s how you can help:
Educate yourself on climate change issues
Hold leaders accountable to support science-based climate action
Raise awareness in your community about the climate crisis
Make changes in your daily life to reduce your own carbon footprint
While we are delighted to share this critical climate conversation with you, we apologize that due to time constraints not all presenters were able to deliver their closing remarks. To that end, we share the following from Susan Natali, Arctic Program Director at the Woodwell Climate Research Center:
“This is a global emergency that requires broad leadership and action—from spiritual leaders, activists, scientists, decision makers, and citizens across the planet. We need to make our voices heard and demand ambitious climate action from our political leaders and from those in the business community who supply us with our many goods and services. It’s not too late to reduce the most severe impacts of climate change, and because feedbacks work in both directions, the actions we take now can restore the Earth’s climate.”
Mind & Life will continue to explore the climate crisis and the human-earth relationship at our virtual 2021 Summer Research Institute, to be held online June 6-11, 2021. Applications are now open.
