Welcome to the Peter Lang Foundation 2013
If a Nobel prize could be awarded for a person who’s work and spirit has inspired thousands of people in an appreciative and life-affirming manner and who’s work and spirit has inspired amazing results for numerous companies, organisations, professional teams and individual professional workers, it has to be our friend, mentor and colleague over many years, Peter Lang, KCC Foundation London. Unfortunately, such an award does not exist.
Therefore, we have decided to do something else to honour Peter Lang and preserve the impact of his lifelong career and work for the future. On Thursday 7th February 2013 we founded the Peter Lang Foundation in order to do this.
We held the founding reception on Friday 15th March 2013 at 16.00 – 19.00 pm kindly sponsored by Rambøll Management/Attractor, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Dr. Peter Lang 31st December 1943 - 12th July 2016
Dear Members of the Peter Lang Foundations
Peter died during the early hours of Tuesday July 12th 2016, having Susan, his wife, by his side. He passed away quietly and peacefully in a hospice near to his home where he stayed the last week of his life.The colon cancer he was diagnosed with late last year was not possible to treat by standard procedures due to his Parkinson’s condition. He had life saving surgery two weeks ago only to realize that the cancer had spread.
Both Benedicte Schilling and Jacob Storch visited Peter a few days before, and it was clear that things could only go one way. Now he is in a much better place, in peace and with no pain. May the many gods of this and other worlds bless his soul.
We all knew Peter as this amazingly inspiring person, a beautiful cut philosophic diamond, who always found a way for the light to peep in, even in the darkest of dark places. Peter was gifted in so many different ways, and all who got to know him created a unique bond to him.Peter will be cremated and a ceremony will take place when Susan feels that the time is right.It was Peter’s wish that the funds of the Foundation should be used to make available his published and unpublished material to as many people as possible. A wish we intend to honor. We have already commenced the gathering of material in collaboration with Peter.Peter and Susan were profoundly grateful for the many donations made to the Foundation. Not only did these funds enable him to get optimal treatment of his Parkinson’s, which significantly improved his quality of life, but they also enabled necessary improvements in their home in order that both Peter and Susan could fulfil their wish that Peter could stay longer at home.Thank you Peter, rest in peace.

Honorary Doctor of Science,
Dr. Peter Lang
During the Spring of 2015 lots of appreciative events happened for Peter and Susan. The University of Bedfordshire through Dr. Gail Simon announced back in February 2015 that Peter had been awarded an Honorary Doctor of Science. The graduation ceremony took place at the Post Graduate Centre, Luton Campus, University of Bedfordshire, in the beautiful St. Mary’s Parish Church in Luton on Friday 27th March 2015. The Foundation was represented by Benedicte Schilling who took part in this very special day with Peter and Susan.
During the ceremony Professor Michael Preston-Shoot read a beautiful statement as to the reason the award was being made. This was filmed on our Ipad and the whole speech can be seen if you go to the front page of: www.peterlangfoundation.com, schroll down to “Peter Lang” and then open “Doctorate of Honour”. Here, we have also posted some of the pictures from the day. Also, you can watch Peter’s spontanous response where he is giving his thanks for the Degree.
