“The International Network of Engaged Buddhists will hold its Biennial conference in January next year.  A few months ago I attended a joint event organised between INEB and the ICE network. It was a fantastic event and put me in touch with many really interesting people who are involved in Buddhism and climate change issues. Also I learned a lot about what is happening and what people are doing.  The conference in Sri Lanka will have workshops on Deep Ecology, Ecosystems, climate change and sustainable development. As well as study tours and many other goodies. I think it will be good. It would be wonderful for more Buddhists from Europe to be involved in INEB. At present it is predominately Asian Buddhists involved.”  Jamie Cresswell,  president EBU

INEB Jan 2016


The International Network of Engaged Buddhists (INEB) began in February 1989 in Thailand, guided by leading founder Sulak Sivaraksa. Over the years, the network has expanded to assemble Buddhists as well as non-Buddhists from more than 20 countries from Asia, Europe, America and Australia. Out of this diversity, INEB has become the leading voice in articulating Socially Engaged Buddhism in the world, while integrating the practice of Buddhism with social action for a healthy, just, and peaceful world. This commitment to global community based on the universal truths of wisdom and compassion guides all of our activities.

INEB key areas of concern and engagement:

  • Peace and reconciliation
  • Environment
  • Gender
  • Alternative education
  • Human rights and social justice
  • Alternative development and economics
  • Community development
  • Reform and revival of Buddhist institutions
  • Youth and spiritual leadership development
