DHARAMSHALA, April 4: The conference on Social, Emotional and Ethical learning (SEE) program by Emory University in collaboration with the Dalai Lama Trust and the Vana Foundation saw its global launch at a press conference in New Delhi today.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama presided over the launch along with Dr. Daniele Goleman, Miss Linda Lantieri, and Dr. Kimberly Schonet-Reichl and Mr. Brandon Ozawa De Silva, the associate director of SEE learning centre at Emory University.

After launching the Happiness Curriculum in state-run schools for students up to 8th last year, the Delhi government is set to integrate the SEE curriculum which aims to bring the ‘secular ethics’ in the classroom for the students of Kindergarten to class 12th.

“Delhi’s Education Minister and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia went through the SEE Learning Curriculum and was keen to adopt some of the activities practised in the program, to enrich their existing (Happiness) Curriculum,” said Geshe Lhakdor, the director of Library of Tibetans Works and Archives(LTWA) and one of the key forces behind the initiative.

At the launch, His Holiness remarked, ‘a happy world cannot exist without human compassion, therefore, the education system should include the education of warm-heartedness.”

The program emphasizes the cultivation of compassion for self and others, resilience skills based on trauma-informed care, system thinking and ethical discernment.

The launch was followed by a ‘secular ethics’ workshop for students from SAARC countries.

Initiated in 2015, SEE Learning has established partnerships in North and South America, South and East Asia and Europe.

Michael A. Elliot, the dean of Emory College of Arts and Sciences (ECAS) have said the compassion-based ethics curriculum represents the culmination of more than two decades of academic cross-cultural collaboration between Emory and the Dalai Lama’s institutions.

The Dalai Lama’s relationship with Emory University spans more than three decades. He had received an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree, had given a commencement address and was named the Presidential Distinguished Professor.

Children’s rights activist and Nobel Peace Laureate, Kailash Satyarthi along with more than a thousand education and policy leaders, National and international experts from across the world are set to take part in main sessions tomorrow and day after.
