Who: Archbishop Desmond Tutu, 1984 Nobel Peace Prize Recipient and Chair of The Elders

Event: Archbishop Desmond Tutu joins the Council in conversation with President and CEO Jane Wales to discuss his role as cleric and activist, including his most recent role as chair of The Elders, a group of the world leaders who contribute their wisdom, leadership and integrity to tackle some of the world's toughest problems. As the first black General Secretary of the South African Council of Churches in 1979, Archbishop Tutu spoke strongly and internationally, pushing for non-violent change and economic sanctions against South Africa. Two years after winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, Tutu was chosen to be Archbishop of Cape Town, the highest position in the Anglican Church in South Africa. In 1994, he was appointed as Chairman of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, to investigate apartheid-era crimes. His policy of forgiveness and reconciliation has become an international model of conflict resolution, and a trusted method of the post-conflict reconstruction.
