The theme for 2020 is … For The Earth
Using the theme
Put the name of your group, event or practice in front of the phrase ‘For the Earth.’ For example:
Tidying our park for the Earth
Bodhisattva practice for the Earth
Going vegan for the Earth
Spiritual Revolution for the Earth
Transforming Self for the Earth
Buddhist Action Month takes place in June and is a time for reflecting on the relationship between practice and action, for asking what our practice is for, and for taking action.
This year’s theme recognises the suffering of all living beings and of the planet. It is a response to both the ecological and climate emergencies.
