For each of the past four years, the U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) has brought young leaders from conflict-affected regions to Dharamsala, India, for a powerful and inspiring dialogue with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. These youths, part of the USIP network of Generation Change Fellows, live and work in the world’s most fragile and war-torn countries and have dedicated their lives to building peace in their communities. In their annual dialogues, His Holiness has talked about how compassion and resilience are foundational to lasting peace.
As the world navigates the COVID-19 pandemic, rising conflict, and growing demands for justice, the need for individual, societal, and international compassion and resilience has never been more urgent. USIP hosted His Holiness the Dalai Lama, USIP President and CEO Nancy Lindborg, and Generation Change Fellows for a virtual dialogue.
