“The escalating threat to the world’s environment and climate stem from a profound predicament that affects all humanity. We are ever more rapidly losing our connection with the sacred nature of our world. This tragedy affects us in so many ways, but at its heart, it is a crisis of the spirit. We are harming our planet and fellow beings because we are losing touch with the basic goodness of our own sacred being.” – Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, 2009 Earth Day Statement

Recently, a delegation of Shambhalians visited the cutting-edge Halifax Recycling Centre. It was heartening to learn how progressive Nova Scotia is, particularly in the area of waste management. Delegations from all over the world visit the centre to learn and study our recycling program, as, with the exception of that of northwestern Europe, it is the most successful program in the world. In looking for ways for the Kalapa Capital Centre to partner with the province, we have spoken with various community leaders and officials to see if there might be ways to work together in the areas of sustainability and environmental issues.
