ABIM TO HOST ISLAM & BUDDHISM ECO DIALOGUE (IBED 2022)

Muslim Youth Movement of Malaysia (ABIM) takes the issue of climate change hitting the world today with serious concern. ABIM stresses that the major disasters occurring in recent times including those currently faced by our country are the impacts of climate change happening around the world.

We must be aware that the phenomena triggering this climatic turmoil is the result of our greed which has carelessly sacrificed environmental balance. Among the clear consequences of climate change are unexpected rainfall, as well as global warming that is impacting our lives.

Thus, with this awareness, ABIM together with the Tibetan Buddhist Culture Centre (TBCC), University of Malaya (UM) and several collaborators will be organizing an international dialogue on Islam & Buddhism Eco Dialogue (IBED 2022) featuring world intellectual figures from Islam and Buddhism as one of the ways to find solutions to the impacts of climate change as well as to create awareness among the global community.


Muhammad Faisal Abdul Aziz, ABIM President.

Among the invited figures include His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (Dalai Lama), Prof Emeritus Dato’ Dr Osman Bakar, Dr Reza Shah Kazemi, Ven Prof Dr K.L Dhammajoti, Ven Dr Bhikkhuni Dhammananda, and Dato’ Prof Dr Azizan Baharudin.

The programme will be held on 15th – 16th January 2022. Registration and further inquiries about the event can be made through the link – www.ibedconf.com.

In related developments, ABIM hopes that 2022 will be a better time for all citizens of the world to jointly handle this issue of climate justice in a better manner.
