Watching the news can sometimes leave us feeling overwhelmed and powerless by the scale of the problems that humanity currently faces.
This free talk aims to offer practical solutions and a vision of hope that can empower all people.
The talk is organised by SGI-UK, a lay Buddhist Organisation, and is open to all regardless of religious background.
The talk aims to address three of the most crucial issues that exist in the world today, and will be given by Robert Harrap the General Director of SGI-UK since December 2013. Before that he spent 16 years as a barrister in chambers in London's Inner Temple.
The talk will communicate the peace proposal put forward to the United Nations by the eminent Buddhist philosopher Daisaku Ikeda. Daisaku Ikeda is a peace builder, a prolific writer, poet, educator and founder of a number of cultural, educational and peace research institutions around the world. This proposal will be submitted to the United Nations this year. Daisaku Ikeda has submitted a peace proposal to the UN every year since 1983 and received over 300 honorary doctorates and many international honours and awards in recognition of his tireless work for peace.
The talk is aimed at anyone who has an interest in these issues, and will be followed by a question and answer session.
SGI-UK is a lay Buddhist organisation based on the teachings of Nichiren Daishonin that teaches individual empowerment and works for peace, education, and cultural exchange.
