Freetown is taking action against climate change

It’s one of the poorest countries in the world. However, Sierra Leone is committed to adopt solutions to fight climate change. As part of the C40 Cities, Brut nature met Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr, Mayor of Freetown, the country’s capital city. This is her message.

    The one who can reach the depth of the inner Maitriya will be optimistic and overwhelmed in truthfulness. Those who acquire the wrong form will be overwhelmed with pessimism. - Maha Sambhodhi Dharma Sangha Guru Maitriya Message Given on The Completion of Tapas on May 20, 2011 https://maitriya.info/en/dharma/news/91/maitriya-message-given-on-the-completion-of-tapas

    2. The science of the Dharma Tattva is very deep and limitless. 3. In order to realise the True Dharma and Tattva, it is necessary to embody the Tattva oneself. 4. And the Dharma Tattva is not limited to this world alone, but resides in all existence. From: Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha Guru's Message in Chitwan of June 8, 2013 Full message here: http://maitriya.info/en/news/158/maha-sambodhi-dharma-sangha-guru-s-message-in

    4. A great storm has come amidst the human world. Now the one remedy to deal with this is the Dharma. 5. When one does not move on the Precepts and Path of the Dharma, then this distraught world is certain to be destroyed. 6. Thus, this Path and this message is to be exhorted by you all to the world’s society: never ever create obstacles, hitches, indignation, and disbelief about my austere practice. https://maitriya.info/en/news/55/the-night-message-of-peace

    Sierra Leon is small but wealthy. Very educated people live here. They had the First University in whole of Africa. Climate change is effecting Africa, as we have started to cut down trees, to better our life.
