The Baha'i Chair for World Peace Ninth Annual Lecture

The Baha'i Chair for World Peace at the University of Maryland is deeply honored that Professor David Cadman has agreed to deliver the Baha'i Chair for World Peace Ninth Annual Lecture. The title of Professor Cadman's address will be "Eternal Wisdom in an Age of Illusion: Reflections Upon a Pathway."

Professor David Cadman was the Chairman of The Prince of Wales's Foundation (1999-2001). He represents His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales on the Executive Committee of The Friends of Mount Athos and is a Trustee of The Temenos Academy, of which His Royal Highness is the Patron. He has had a number of Professorial Chairs and for many years was a Fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge. He is presently a Visiting Professor at The Bartlett School of Planning, University College London and of The Faculty of the Built Environment, at The University of the West of England. He has written and lectured extensively on the subject of land economy and, more recently, has published work that draws upon the teachings of the great spiritual traditions, especially those of Buddhism and his birthright Quakerism. He is the author of a mythic tale, The King Who Lost His Memory and, bringing together The Prince's Foundation and The Temenos Academy, he contributed to and was the joint editor of a collection of essays entitled A Sacred Trust: Ecology From a Spiritual Perspective, which was published in 2002 with a Preface from His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. Professor Cadman founded and is now the Chairman of Upstream, a strategic consultancy concerned with corporate social responsibility, socially responsible investment and environmental management.

The date for this year's Annual Lecture is Wednesday, April 2, 2003. The Annual Lecture ceremony will commence at 8:00 p.m. and will be held at the Inn and Conference Center, University of Maryland, University College, 3501 University Boulevard, Adelphi, MD 20783 (telephone 301-985-7300).
