About the EBU
Activities of the EBU
The European Buddhist Union is active on several domains to achieve its mission, in line with the values and goals that guide us.
(goals and values are specified in the EBU Statement of Mission, Vision, Values and Goals)
The EBU facilitates several networks. Via our operation networks we connect our members (National Unions and AGM), establish a structural dialogue with the European Institutions (European Affairs), and organise events and conferences. We also support and run engaged Buddhist community networks on various themes all over Europe and make projects among our member organisations known to a wider public.
If you want to contribute to the topic of a network (for example an article, a date for an event, a book, a video, …) and/or if you would like to take part in a network, please contact the network coordinator.
Dialogue with European institutions
We facilitate dialogue between European decision makers and their Buddhist citizens. We also inform and update our member organisations about current European affairs and initiatives (for example in the field of Human Rights via the Council of Europe).
Partnerships with other international organisations
We build partnerships with other international Buddhist organisations, and with other organisations with common goals. The EBU is also a partner in the dialogue between religions, philosophies and non-confessional organisations.
