We have been thinking about outreach into Buddhist communities in the UK, to find out how other Buddhists are experiencing the climate and ecological emergency and how they are responding to that in their practises and actions. There is a lot we can learn by listening to other people. We expect many Buddhists in different traditions are concerned by the suffering of the Earth. As we think about preparing for the road to COP 26 in November 2021 we have been researching who the Buddhists are in the UK to consider who we are talking to – and who we aren’t.
We have created a couple of charts and tables using data provided by the Office for National Statistics from the 2011 census. To see them click here GoogleDoc
