Dalai Lama returning to Emory University Oct. 8-10

His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, Presidential Distinguished Professor at Emory University, and winner of the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize, will return to Atlanta Oct. 8-10, 2013, for a series of public and campus events, including programs on responsible citizenship, ethics and education.  

Tickets to two events, a public talk and a panel session, scheduled Tuesday, Oct. 8 at the Arena at Gwinnett Center, will be available to the public. Admission to both events is included with each ticket purchased. Events include:  
  • A lecture by the Dalai Lama on "The Pillars of Responsible Citizenship in the 21st Century Global Village," from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
The talk will focus on the fundamental human values that are the building blocks of an engaged and compassionate world. The Dalai Lama will outline his comprehensive vision of secular ethics, its underlying principles, and the urgent need to embrace such a system in today’s increasingly connected and globalized society. A question-and-answer session following the lecture will be moderated by Paul Root Wolpe, director of Emory's Center for Ethics.  
  • A panel discussion on "Secular Ethics and Education," featuring the Dalai Lama alongside top scientists and educators, from 1-3 p.m.
Panelists will examine the applicability of secular ethics in modern education through the lens of evolutionary biology, neuroscience, and educational policy and curricula. Discussion will include the implications of secular ethics for the U.S. education system, strategies of implementation, and potential benefits.   

Tickets for the public events go on sale beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, April 26 at GwinnettCenter.com, The Arena at Gwinnett Center Box Office or by calling 1-888-9-AXS-TIX. Complete event and ticket information is available at dalailama.emory.edu
