Dalai Lama to attend 17th Forum 2000 conference in September

The Dalai Lama is due to appear at this year’s Forum 2000 conference in Prague in mid September, the event’s organisers said on Wednesday. The exiled Tibetan spiritual leader has been to the Czech capital several times and was close to the late president Václav Havel, who co-founded Forum 2000 as a platform for debate on issues facing the world. The theme of this year’s conference, the 17th, will be social transformation. While he is in Prague, the Dalai Lama is also expected to deliver public lectures.
