The Gandhi Research Foundation (GRF) is delighted to extend a warm invitation to you for our upcoming Winter School program, an excellent opportunity to re-envision personally, socially, and ecologically sustainable life.

Our Winter School in Nonviolence and Peace is an annually held international training session. This week-long program investigates the conceptual framework of nonviolence, peace, and conflict, with the aim of re-envisioning socially and ecologically viable life. Taught by leading scholars and practitioners of Gandhi’s Sarvodaya (welfare-of-all) philosophy, this interactive workshop helps the participants formulate symbiotic perspectives to deal with the challenges and controversies confronting global society. The course includes meditative sessions of yoga, experiential sessions with a Peace Walk, observational sessions with Bird Watching, and interactive sharing sessions with participants’ personal testimonies of peace experience. Students, peace activists, human rights’ advocates, and anyone interested in learning the art of peaceful and harmonious coexistence can apply.

The program offers a diverse range of workshops, exercises, games, lectures, and hands-on activities. Whether you are a student, professional, or simply eager to broaden your knowledge, our Winter School offers something for everyone.
