Following the earlier set of talks about different areas of challenge for contemporary Buddhists in the modern world - at times sobering as we heard evoked strongly the huge needs involved - we get to hear some tales of ordinary communities of practitioners who are doing something creative in response.

Jnanadhara evokes a wonderful climate march in Dublin; Viveka reports on the San Francisco sangha looking together at racial bias; Vajrajyoti describes how a Buddhist recovery movement took root in Auckland, New Zealand; Parami brings us up to speed with the gender diverse movement in Triratna; and Prajnaketu discusses the next stage of development for a successful Young Buddhists initiative.
