Peace Symposium Available Via Live Webcast
Due to high demand for tickets and in response to continued public interest in the “Common Ground for Peace” symposium featuring His Holiness the Dalai Lama, spiritual leader of Tibet, Syracuse University will webcast the two panel discussions live on Monday, Oct. 8. The symposium convenes international thought leaders and the SU campus in critical conversations about how to shift global consciousness toward matters of peace and is a separate event from the public talk and One World Concert on Tuesday, Oct. 9, in the Carrier Dome.
