460 Co2PlaneAll forms of travel are among the biggest emitters of CO2, especially air travel. With one international flight we exceed our recommended annual carbon footprint. In order to protect our planet, it is advisable to travel less – go by train and bus instead of car and plane.

If travel or flying is required, you can now compensate for your contribution to CO2 emission by contributing 3-5% of your yearly travel budget towards a dedicated BK travel compensation fund. These funds will be used by Brahma Kumaris for solar and green projects in order to compensate for your travel emission.

Start now:

- Reduce your personal travel CO2 footprint

- Use environmentally friendly ways to travel

- Compensate for your contribution to CO2 emission by donating towards the compensation fund

- Share your experiences via mail

Workshops for the environment

Environment, Lifestyle and Consciousness - As a part of our Environment Initiative, the Brahma Kumaris are exploring the connection between the consciousness of the individual and the collective effect on the state of the planet. Our consciousness determines the values by which we live. Our values form the basis of our actions which in turn determine whether or not they contribute to the protection and sustainability of the environment.

GREEN THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect. Chief Seattle, 1855
