Living to love the earth: The Gyalwang Drukpa in Berlin

Living to love the earth: The Gyalwang Drukpa in Berlin

Climate change, pollution, digitalization, resource exploitation - society is more than ever confronted with challenges that have a global impact. On which values can a secure future be shaped?
During his visit to Berlin from November 12 to 15, 2019, the Gyalwang Drukpa answered these questions in numerous interviews and met personalities who are working tirelessly for a sustainable future.

Conversation with Prof. Dr. Maja Göpel

In an exchange with Prof. Dr. Maja Göpel, Secretary General of the German Advisory Council on Global Change, the Gyalwang Drukpa emphasized that the development of compassion could lead to more understanding for the protection of nature, the environment and all living beings. Education helps to understand the connections between cause and effect of actions. Then change can take place. Maja Göpel emphasized that every individual contribution counts. At present, there is a lack of awareness and many people are resigned to the climate problems.

Change Congress

Become happy by making others happy

At the Change Congress, the Gyalwang Drukpa presented inspiring approaches to a sustainable corporate philosophy in an interview with Christoph Bertling, Managing Director of Handelsblatt Fachmedien. He suggested investing in the well-being of the country, in clean cities, in nature and in health. Leaders have a special responsibility, he said. Those who make others happy achieve happiness themselves.

Meeting with Luisa Neubauer from Fridays for Future

Two hearts beat for the future of the earth

In a meeting with Luisa Neubauer, Fridays for Future, the Gyalwang thanked Drukpa for the enormous commitment of the climate protection movement, which is making a great contribution to a change in consciousness. Luisa Neubauer explained how important it was to her generation to establish real change and act from the heart. The Gyalwang Drukpa shared his efforts to work to protect the earth and the motivation for founding Live To Love. Sustainable action, he said, is part of the curriculum at the Druk Padma Karpo School he founded in Ladakh, northern India. Parents would benefit from the children's knowledge and thus a new awareness for the climate crisis would grow.
