During his visit to Norway in May, His Holiness the 14th The Dalai Lama has chosen to focus on a dialogue with students. Under the topic «Taking Responsibility for Tomorrow’s World» he wants to challenge the Norwegian students on taking action, and discuss what prevents this on both a personal level and in the community. The event is organized by Kulturutvalget at the Norwegian Students’ Society an this year’s Arne Næss Symposium.
