The public forum – entitled Who We Are: Human Uniqueness, Value and Self Determination
– was organised to coincide with Archbishop Tutu's visit to London to receive the Templeton Prize.

The prize, valued at 1.1 million, honours a living person who has made exceptional contributions to affirming life's spiritual dimension. The first recipient in 1973 was Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

Tutu, who is Anglican Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town, is an alumnus of King's College London which owns the Greenwood Theatre.
