The Lungta Tradition
NFTS - Chain of Compassion is a playful reference to the Prayer Flag (Lungta) tradition in Tibet. Flags designed with 5 auspicious animals (wind horse, snow lion, garuda, tiger & dragon) and special prayers are hung outside to send positive messages into the winds. This, as a way to clear obstacles and generate compassion for all sentient beings. Traditionally 5 colours are being used: white, blue, green, yellow & red. The colour white symbolizes compassion.
We are The Pollinators. We are creating a healthy environment for the pollinating species. The Pollinators are a community and a platform that mainly focuses on supporting and connecting people and initiatives that protect and stimulate the pollinators and biodiversity.
The Pollinators is an initiative of The Tipping Point in collaboration with Nudge. In 2016 it started together with De Bijenkorf. At this moment more than 20 initiatives already connected as well as a few great Partner organizations.
