Due to overwhelming public interest in this event, organizers are making every effort to be inclusive and fair in the selection process for public attendance (there is no admission charge). Our goal is to ensure a broad and diverse representation of our community at the event.

High School and University Students

A challenging essay-writing competition, open primarily to grades 11 and 12 in BC, and a Call for Participation for SFU and UBC students, are keys to the organizers’ focus on youth involvement. Six winners will be selected to ask questions at the Roundtable Dialogue held at the Chan Centre at UBC. Approximately 150 runners-up will be invited to attend the simulcast session at SFU’s Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue. The competitions will be on an aspect of balancing mind-heart education in the context of sustainable development or community-building.

The deadline for the BC grade 11 and 12 competition has passed. Winners and runners-up will be informed before March 31, 2004.

The deadline for the Call for Participation has passed. Winners and runners-up will be informed before April 9th, 2004.

Community Outreach

Representatives from community organizations and the Downtown Eastside have been given special priority for complimentary tickets to the Roundtable. Allotment for seats for these categories are now fully subscribed.


The Vancouver Sun, in cooperation with the Organizing Committee for the Vancouver Visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, has 100 exclusive tickets to give away for the Roundtable Dialogue. Enter via the Vancouver Sun Web site by March 31, 2004 at 4 pm.
The Roundtable Dialogue on "Balancing Educating the Mind with Educating the Heart" will be held on April 20, 2004 at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at UBC, simulcast at SFU's Morris J. Wosk Center for Dialogue.

The Roundtable Dialogue provides an opportunity for community contemplation of His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama's message of compassion and understanding in the context of current policy challenges in such areas as community building and sustainable development. The Dalai Lama's message has contributed many wonderful and important insights to discourses on education, particularly in the area of emotional intelligence and the need to nurture young learners with ideals of community, empathy, and cooperation.

Roundtable Speakers have already engaged in exchanges with His Holiness on the various facets of this theme. The occasion will be the first opportunity for Vancouver to experience the depth of wisdom that these world visionaries bring to deliberations of how we might approach some of the complex questions of our times.
