In this regard, at this Conference The WFB will present the “Sufficiency Economy Philosophy” of H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej which applied the “Middle Path” of Buddhism as course of conduct and it is in accordance with Sustainable Development Goals in framework of the United Nations.
WBU INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
‘Sustainable Development’ became a modern mantra of our century. It applies to everything what we do and think in our life. Accordingly, the United Nations Organization announced for every government to adopt the universal, integrated and transformative 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development along with a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs, otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. It is a bold outcry to transform the way we live and think to a sustainable life. On the other hand, Buddhism in a true sense lays guidelines to achieve the very sustainable development as its ultimate goal.
This International Conference ‘The Buddhist Path to Sustainable Development Goals’ designed in a way that the proceedings of the conference could be a reference book for the field of sustainability.
