    Together with Ms. Anna Pieczatkowska – the President of SMIT CREATOR – I have had an unique opportunity to participate in the project „Caring Gaia”. It was held at the Temple of Spanish Zen Luz Serena which is situated in the picturesque region of Casas del Rio. Global challenges, the protection of nature and the promotion of the sustainable development were the major issues on the agenda. Activities included: training sessions, the preparation of “Youth in Action” (YiA) projects, the exploring of the Buddhist philosophy as well as the meditation practice and such a “simple thing” as hiking as well. It was a very profound and deeply instructive experience for me. I highly recommend anyone to participate in the similar projects
