What People Say

“Climate change is possibly one of the most serious environmental threats facing our world today. Our first guru, Guru Nanak Dev Ji, explained that the world we humans create around ourselves is a reflection of our own inner state.

Rick Panesar, Eco-Sikh UK

We need to act now to combat climate change and air pollution, as well as safeguarding our environment for future generations.”
