Bharat Soka Gakkai: Bharat Soka Gakkai, the Indian arm of Soka Gakkai International, organised a peace and sustainability conclave to discover a path to revive humanity. The conclave, which was held on 29 October at Dr Ambedkar International Centre in the national capital, was based on Soka Gakkai International President Daisaku Ikeda's proposals to the United Nations, which emphasis the need to forge global solidarity for sustainability.
Ikeda submits a peace proposal to the UN every year, but this year's proposal has acquired greater urgency because the pandemic has set back the UN's Sustainable Development Goals targeted for 2030. The conclave commemorated two important events - 75 years of India's Independence and 75 years of SGI President Daisaku Ikeda's pursuit of peace.
To encourage each one to work towards sustainability, the Bharat Soka Gakkai launched a unique SDG mobile app - a one-stop platform on SDG - at the conclave. "Peace and sustainability can only be achieved when we all are 'one with nature and one another'. Bharat Soka Gakkai has been doing exactly that since its inception promoting peace and equality. BSG's Peace and Sustainability Conclave is another step in that direction," said Amit Sachdeva, philanthropist, and social entrepreneur. Vishesh Gupta, Chairperson, Bharat Soka Gakkai, underscored that peace and sustainability are two sides of the same coin.
