Overview

Buddhism views human being as part of nature and if nature is destroyed humanity cannot live, and by abusing nature human being abuses he or herself. Environment may be made pollution free and development can be continued through the Buddhist approach by practicing compassion, interdependence, non-violence, human reverence for nature; by choosing simple life-styles which promote social justice and environmental sustainability for the present and future generations; by emphasizing, within the family and the community, religious values and ethical teachings which urge responsible use of material resources and which ensure just human relationships; by initiating practical activities to prevent pollution, renew forests, protect endangered species, correct climate change and enhance awareness about the global ecological crisis; by opposing and seeking to correct intolerance and injustice within and between different religious communities; by maintaining sustainable development and ecological responsibility; and by multiplying projects involving women and youth, which can be widely imitated and can give satisfying evidence of success in conservation.
