Give Mother Earth 18 Months

Dear Plum Village friends everywhere,

An exciting invitation to join thousands of PV friends around the world for coordinated Earth Justice practice!

The Plum Village Earth Holder Community is encouraging sangha members around the world to support young people on September 20 in the Global Climate Strike, and then to follow this with various ways of caring for Mother Earth and all its beings over the next 18 months. You can find more about this coordinated worldwide mahasangha applied practice opportunity:

For general information, if needed after reading the above documents, please contact Simona Coayla-Duba, Earth Holder Community Coordinator, simona.coayladuba@gmail.com

Please forward to your sanghas and practice networks and help build momentum for a one-day worldwide coordinated applied Plum Village practice day on behalf of Mother Earth on Sept 20th!

In gratitude, friends on the Compassionate Direct Action family of the PV Earth Holder Community.

UN Secretary General António Guterres, 2 min call for deliberate, global action on climate justice.

    • Dear Anon,

      Thank you for your interest in protecting mother earth:) The flyer is for a march which happened on the 20th of September, 2019 so it might not be useful to you now. Here is the website for the Youth Climate March movement: https://fridaysforfuture.org/ and for the Global Climate strike movement: https://globalclimatestrike.net/ for up to date information on marches happening around the world. It will most likely be on the PV website or facebook page if we are planning to go out again in support of the marches. If you are in America I suggest you contact one of our centers there to ask them if they are planning anything. https://plumvillage.org/monastic-practice-centres/

      Wishing you peaceful steps wherever you are and wherever you go,


      Sr Chanh Niem

  • You’re also all welcome to join Extinction Rebellion during the International Rebellion Week (7 October onward), in London, Paris, Amsterdam or wherever is closest to you. In Amsterdam we’ll be having daily meditations and a lot of singing!
