COP19: Jayanti Kirpalani calls for spirituality to combat climate change

COP19 (15/11/13) – Jayanti Kirpalani says that reflection and a change in consciousness is key to combating climate change.

She says that there has to be a change of awareness and a change of consciousness and only then when there is a paradigm shift will it be possible to see change.

She pushes for society to move beyond consumerism and reflect to find happiness and peace inside. She links this to equity, claiming that only when we find respect and appreciate the fellow human can we begin to think about justice and fairness.
