A full house on site at COP26’s Green Zone as well as viewers online joined Dr Bashabi Fraser CBE for this insight into the wisdom of Rabindranath Tagore. View Professor Fraser’s event by clicking on the YouTube link here. I highly recommend it.
Tagore was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature but he was also an environmentalist with a global perspective. Rabindranath and his circle’s ecological consciousness is as relevant today as ever, his legacy seen in current sustainability policies. His spirit is alive in all voices calling for climate justice and urgent reform.
‘We may become powerful by knowledge, but we attain fullness by sympathy. The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.’
-Rabindranath Tagore, ‘My School’
Bashabi Fraser is an award winning poet and academic with a global vision. This was an event to refresh and nourish our minds and spirits, from one of Scotland’s finest intellectuals, co-founder of the Scottish Centre for Tagore Studies (ScoTs).
