Our World To Make: A Public Talk With Ved Nanda

3:00 - 5:00pm
(Followed by reception)

On Saturday, September 26th, the Center will host a public event with Ved Nanda, Evans University Professor and Thompson G. Marsh Professor of Law at the University of Denver. To mark the publication of our latest title, Our World To Make: Hinduism, Buddhism, and The Rise of Global Civil Society, which he co-authored with Daisaku Ikeda, Professor Nanda will share insights gained from decades of experience working in the field of international law. During his remarks he will examine themes from the book including the development and protection of human rights, the importance of humanistic education, and the multiple dimensions of emerging global civil society.

Please join us for this timely conversation on hope and our shared global future.  

Ved Nanda“As we enter the new century, we see that conflicts and struggles continue unabated around the world. The global challenges we currently face are formidable. Problems such as environmental degradation and destruction, climate change, religious and ethnic conflicts, international terrorism, the North-South divide between haves and have-nots, and inequality and poverty are intensifying. It is clear that humankind has no alternative but to come together to build a world in which religious, racial, and cultural diversity is not simply tolerated but indeed respected and celebrated.”
- Ved Nanda, Our World To Make

This event is free and open to the public
