Established in 2005 in Vancouver, Canada, the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education is inspired by the Dalai Lama’s vision for 21st century education. His belief that a balance between educating the mind and educating the heart will help create a more compassionate and peaceful world is the cornerstone of the Center’s mission.
The Center is a non-religious, non-political charitable organization governed by a Board of Trustees. We work to inform, inspire and engage the adults who care for and teach children in homes, schools and community learning environments. By sharing current research, scientific knowledge, resources and best practices related to social and emotional learning, the Center is a leading advocate for change in how we educate our children.
Compassionate children in a peaceful world.
Educate the hearts of children by informing, inspiring and engaging the communities around them.
