Archbishop Desmond Tutu and a panel of distinguished academic and religious figures discuss the question - what is the essence of being human?

The forum is organised in connection with the Templeton Prize which is being presented to Archbishop Tutu on Tuesday.

The Templeton Prize has been the world's largest annual monetary award given to an individual for the past 40 years. Tutu joins a distinguished group of 42 former recipients.

The Archbishop will bring his long experience as an opponent of apartheid and as a champion of human rights to the discussion, which is designed to shed light on the very essence of being human and humanity's uniqueness.

The moderator will be a former Templeton Prize winner, George F.R. Ellis, and panelists will include Malcolm Jeeves, Ian Tattersall, Anthony C. Thiselton, Alan J. Torrance and Adam Zeman.
