Alexandra Masako Goosens-Ishii works for an international Buddhist grassroots network, saying her advocacy work increasingly centres on agroforestry and agro-ecology, which meshes with her World Council of Churches (WCC) links.
Dr Goosens-Ishii coordinates programmes for Soka Gakkai International, working on the environment from Geneva, where Soka Gakkai International operates from the same building as the WCC.
“Sokka Gakkai is a Buddhist grassroots network. I'm specifically working on climate change, the environment, and biodiversity. That's why I had a specific interest in the workshop today,” she said in an interview with the WCC.
