Dalai Lama to deliver U-M Wege Lecture in April

The 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet will deliver the Peter M. Wege Lecture on sustainability on April 20 at Crisler Arena. The lecture coincides with Earth Day weekend and is free and open to the public, though tickets are required. The general public can obtain two tickets per person at the Michigan Union Ticket Office starting March 5. The Nobel Peace Prize winner and Buddhist leader last visited Ann Arbor in 1994, when about 9,000 people attended a lecture at Crisler. Each year, the Center for Sustainable Systems at the School of Natural Resources and Environment invites an internationally recognized leader to deliver the Wege Lecture. Recent speakers include former Vice President Al Gore and William Clay Ford Jr., executive chairman of Ford Motor Co.
