Bun Saluth is Cambodia’s pioneer of the Buddhist environmental movement. In 2002 he succeeded, despite having been threatened with his life, in being able to legally protect 18,261 hectares of evergreen forest now called the Monks Community Forest, which he still safeguards today. What he achieved spread and now monks across the country are working together with local people to stop environmental destruction.
Climate Heroes is a not-for-profit media project that aims to shed the light on those men and women who stand out by their values and actions, and can thus be set up as inspirational models to help us mitigate climate change.
It specifically aims to:
- Highlight positive actions that bring actual solutions
- Offer the public a novel vision on climatic issues, more readily accessible through examples taken from a wide range of stakeholders, be they professional or citizens
- Provoke thought, inspire and foster behavioral changes
