The European sangha meets during its first ‘European Forum’

Filed under Community Articles, Regions, Eastern, SE Europe, Regions, Northern Europe, Regional Announcements

The European sangha is composed of different regions with their own cultures and languages. The establishing of these regions and their collaboration takes time and is in process for years.

They were further developed in the conversations of the ERDC.
