Opportunities abound to participate online in ‘Common Ground for Peace’
Community members have many opportunities to see—and participate in—the “Common Ground for Peace” events Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 8 and 9, at Syracuse University involving His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
While seating is at capacity for Monday’s symposium panels in the Schine Student Center’s Goldstein Auditorium, a webcast of each panel discussion—“The Democracy Movement in the Middle East” from 9-11 a.m. and “Shifting the Global Consciousness” from 1:30-3:30—will be streamed live at oneworld.syr.edu/webcast/.
Also, several closed-circuit viewing locations have been set up on campus: Room 010 in Crouse Hinds Hall; Whitman School of Management’s Flaum Grand Hall; Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium in Newhouse 3; Room 273 in Newhouse 2; the Inn Complete on South Campus; and Kimmel Dining Center.
Those attending the panels and others watching remotely via the live video will have an opportunity to submit questions for the panelists by email to email@example.com or by Twitter using the hashtag #CGPDemocracy for the morning discussion and #CGPGlobal for the afternoon discussion. Questions will be collected during the first hour of each session, and a selection will be posed to the panelists during the discussion period.
Syracuse University will be live tweeting throughout the day, and Twitter users are encouraged to use these same hashtags (#CGPDemocracy for the morning event and #CGPGlobal for the afternoon event) to contribute to the online conversation.
Live Twitter commentary on Tuesday’s One World Concert in the Carrier Dome (7-11 p.m.)—featuring a public address by the Dalai Lama followed by performances by an array of international musicians—can be followed via the hashtag #oneworldconcert.
Tickets to the One World Concert—$35, $55, $55—are available at the Carrier Dome Box Office; by phone at 888-DOMETIX (366-3849); or online at Ticketmaster.com.
