In order for young Buddhists to realize their human potential to contribute to real change, INEB is offering a training to develop confidence, capacity and commitment amongst young Buddhists for social and spiritual transformation.

The future of humankind relies on its young generation. However, growing up in divided societies makes it very difficult for this generation to realize their potential and positively contribute to society. A majority of youth expend their vitality because of the impact of structural violence; namely - poverty, ill health and many other social and economic inequities in education, housing, employment, and so on. These conditions create disparities and instability.
In order for young Buddhists to realize their human potential to contribute to real change, INEB is offering a training for youth to develop confidence, capacity and commitment amongst young Buddhists to facilitate their inner social and spiritual transformation. The main objective of the training is to have youth understand theory and develop critical ability for using analytical Buddhist tools to apply towards alternative methods that would contribute to sustainable community development.
This training will empower and enrich 30 youth in ancient Buddhist teachings and their applications to current global problems. As the youth come out with greater clarity about the capacity of their inner being, and their interdependent connection with the external world, they regain the innate wisdom and compassion. This recognition naturally leads to action for the wellbeing of all. These 30 youth will gain the potential to create real social and sustainable change in their communities.
