In September 2015, The Rumi Foundation supported the Inspire Dialogue “Growing Wisdom. Changing People” Conference with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Lord Rowan Williams at Magdalene College, Cambridge.
Tying in with the foundation’s belief of giving people the space to think, the conference, taking place over 2 days, brought together 150 young people, leading thought leaders, social entrepreneurs and academics to engage in open conversation without restricting ideas.
Led by Lord Williams and His Holiness the Dalai Lama the conference was framed around seven topics of Resources, Environment, Education, Health, Freedom, Technology and Conflict Resolution. Attendees were challenged not only to discuss important issues facing society today but to come up with meaningful action driven solutions.
Supported by The Foundation for Universal Responsibility of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the conference set a platform to help empower a new generation of young people with a sense of belief in a kinder and more compassionate future.
