The European Buddhist Union

The European Buddhist Union (EBU) is a network of Buddhist organizations and National Buddhist Unions in Europe. We are open to all schools and traditions of Buddhism in Europe wishing to unite on the basis of Buddhist teachings and work together in spiritual friendship and respect for diversity.

The EBU is a member of the World Fellowship of Buddhists (2000).

In 2008 the EBU obtained official participatory status with the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. The EBU is actively participating in the Council of Europe's Conference of International Non-Governmental Organisations.

The EBU is a founding member of ENORB, the European Network of Religion and Belief, founded in Brussels, 2011.

Our Mission

Our mission is to facilitate international exchange and promote spiritual friendship amongst European Buddhists, to support social action and ideas motivated by Buddhist-inspired values, and to amplify the voice of Buddhism in Europe and worldwide.
