A Retreat for Young Contemplatives

The Inner Dimensions of Climate Change 

New York, USA 

12 – 16 May 2010: As a follow up to the program at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP-15) in 2009, DDMBA and the Global Peace Initiative of Women (GPIW) brought together young contemplatives in America to support global transformation to address climate change.  40 young adults engaged in contemplative and meditative activities convened to discuss action-steps American youth can take to address climate change. DDMBA provided a platform for discussion.  Together they addressed the inter-generational components of sustainability and passing the torch of leadership to address climate change and environmental challenges.
