Buddhist Action Month (BAM) - an annual festival of social action overseen by the Network of Buddhist Organisations - has been taking place every June since 2012. This year is no exception, despite the changed circumstances, with sanghas going online to offer opportunities to engage with this year’s theme - “…for the Earth”, where the suggestion is to put this phrase in the title of any event that’s being organised for BAM 2020. 

Read more about the theme for this year

Visit the BAM 2020 Events page hosted by the Network of Buddhist Organisations

Throughout June The Buddhist Centre Online in conjunction with friends will be offering some live events to explore this theme of ‘..for the Earth’. We will be announcing these events soon - so keep an eye on the live events and classes section of the Dharma Toolkit.

In the meantime you can take a listen to a special BAM podcast where we discuss the plans for Buddhist Action Month, interconnectivity, active hope and much more to get you in the zone! We are pleased that our friends in the Karuna Trust will be participating this year, bringing to bear their perspective and learnings from 40 years of working to alleviate poverty and caste-based discrimination in India and Nepal.

And, of course, we want to hear about you and your sangha’s plans for the month so please share what you are doing on the Action space. 🌍🌎🌏
