Pre-event for “Dialogue for the future of the Earth”
Science and life in the era of the Earth
Humans and the environment in the era of the Earth
Before the dialogue session with the 14th Dalai Lama, a pre-event was held in which four Japanese scientists spoke about their views and thoughts on the future of the Earth. The conversations with the speakers provided a precious opportunity for us to share time with participants to ponder the questions of “What is the Earth?” “What is diversity?” “What is life and mind?” and “What is happiness?”
