The event also invited leaders of the Mahayana Buddhism Deruk Sect as well as an environmental protection and peace advocates, Gwangwang Drukpa, BirdLife International CEO Patricia Zurita, and Ritter Sports CEO Alfred Ritter to make suggestions from multiple perspectives. For example, although many countries of the world have signed the Paris climate agreement, but we need to brainstorm and exert influences through the power of the whole world, and start to reduce carbon dioxide and plant trees with action. Experts use data to provide various effective carbon dioxide reduction actions. In addition to planting large numbers of trees, experts also recommends to use friendly environment methods when farming, so that the abundant microorganisms in the soil have good carbon sinking effect. Planting trees not only contributes to the environment, but also allows local people to be hire for project work and creates local employment opportunities.
