1st Asian Buddhist Media Conclave

IBCConclave

Lotus Communication Network partnered the Delhi-based International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) in organising the 1st Asian Buddhist Media Conclave in New Delhi on 27 and 28 August, 2018. The Conclave titled 'Mindful Communication for Conflict Avoidance and Sustainable Development' is an idea initiated by LCN in association with IBC. The Conclave was funded by the Indian Government and supported by the Vivekananda International Foundation - Delhi based Hindu Think Tank - and held at their auditorium. Our idea was to bring together Buddhist media practitioners and communication scholars from across Asia to discuss and plan common communication platforms and training programs to create a stronger Buddhist voice in Asia. It is a process that would take a few years to build and we had a very encouraging start in Delhi.  Major recommendations of the Conclave was to introduce a regional mindful communication for sustainable development training program; iptv regional Buddhist TV channel and a Nalanda (arts) Festival.  IBC and LCN will be working on building on these initiatives in coming months.
