In light of the COP 16 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Mexico, the Honorable Jaime Hernández Zaragoza, Mayor of Cancún, and the Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association co-hosted the special “The Greenest Heroes Gala” on December 5.
With keynote speeches from distinguished guests that included Mary Robinson, 7th President of Ireland and the 44th President of Costa Rica, José María Figueres Olsen, the vibrant occasion lauded eight key individuals along with others making great strides towards curbing climate change through their vegan lifestyles.
One of the highlights of the gala was the premiere of the book, “From Crisis to Peace: The Organic Vegan Way Is the Answer,” a compilation of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s messages regarding the protection of our planet.
As a token of appreciation for Mexico, Cancún, and all participants, Supreme Master Ching Hai shared some never-before revealed spiritual information.
