The Centre for Buddhist Studies presents

Pad Yatra: A Green Odyssey
Film and Talkback

Join us for a screening of Pad Yatra: A Green Odyssey. A talk back with director Wendy J. N. Lee will follow the film.

Pad Yatra: A Green Odyssey is the harrowing adventure of 700 people, trekking across the Himalayas with a call to save the planet's "3rd Pole," a glacial region now devastated by the climate chaos associated with global warming.Battling the most treacherous terrain on earth, they spread their message of ecological compassion through human's most basic means -by walking on foot, village to village, and showing by example. Barely surviving injuries, illness, and starvation, the trekkers emerge with nearly half a ton of plastic litter strapped to their backs, triggering an historic green revolution across the rooftop of the world.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required. For further information, please contact the Centre for Buddhist Studies
