The Dalai Lama has arrived in Hobart as part of his Australian tour.

The 14th Dalai Lama has visited the University of Tasmania to deliver a
talk advocating individual and universal responsibility in caring for
the planet.

His Holiness also helped celebrate an academic exchange program between
the School of Philosophy and the Central University of Tibetan Studies.

Professor Jeff Malpas from UTAS says the Buddhist Studies Program has
been offering student exchanges for years.

"It's really the culmination of over a decade of work that we've been
involved in northern India and with the Tibetans so for us it's a really
important celebration," he said.

This afternoon the Dalai Lama delivers a public talk titled " Our Earth,
Who is Responsible?".

He will then head to Melbourne for the final leg of his Australian trip.
