The Dalai Lama Foundation to launch the The Living History Experience -

a part of The Global Center for Peace Initiative 



In preparation of His Holiness’ 80th Birthday, The Dalai Lama Foundation embraces Indiegogo to create the world’s first and only comprehensive, interactive history of the Dalai Lama. The Living History Experience, a part ofThe Global Center for Peace Initiative, is endorsed by the Dalai Lama.


(October 6, 2014Los Angeles) – The Dalai Lama Foundation, a global, non-profit group focused on peace and ethics education worldwide, announced a campaign today on Indiegogo (, the world’s largest crowdfunding platform, to develop the “Living History of the Dalai Lama.” The multi-media, interactive, online experience will chronicle the life and accomplishments of this Nobel Peace Prize winner who is one of the world’s best-known and most respected advocates for peace.


“The Living History of the Dalai Lama” will bring the words and actions of this extraordinary man to people across the globe so that new generations of changemakers will be motivated to further improve life on our planet,” said Darlene Markovich, President and Executive Director of the Dalai Lama Foundation.


Markovich added, “As His Holiness approaches his 80th birthday next year, we know that now is the time to create the Living History. Join us as we celebrate the life and accomplishments of this extraordinary man. With your help and generous support, you can become a part of history in the making.”


Scheduled to launch in mid-2015, The Living History Experience is part of the Foundation’s larger campaign to establish the Global Center for Peace. The Center will ultimately house both archival and current materials relevant to the conversation and study of peace with leaders in this emerging field worldwide.


Set to deploy shortly after the Living History, the second part of the initiative is the Incubator For GOOD, a program that will enable social entrepreneurs. The final part, a Bay Area-based Center for Peace, will be a physical space designed to educate, inspire and encourage action among the next generation of peacemakers throughout the world.
