The Tzu Chi Center, part of the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation, is hosting the first ever Holistic Climate Solutions Summit during Climate Week NYC.

To examine climate action from a holistic perspective, the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation is hosting its first ever Holistic Climate Solutions Summit in alignment with both Climate Week NYC and the UN General Assembly.

From September 19-25, sessions will be conducted in the form of thought-provoking panels, interactive workshops, ‘intentional meals,’ and community-based programs. They’ll present solutions-focused themes that model a better tomorrow, as well as those that showcase what’s possible when optimism and action converge with respect for all sentient beings and our planet. It also gathers 90 speakers (with 80 unique speakers), across 22 events in total.
