Workshop on Nonviolence
A perpetual state of nonviolence can be advanced in the world through the proliferation of adequate knowledge and skill development of the people. The workshop will cater to peace and furnish an understanding of nonviolence through academic engagement.
Today intangible conflict around the globe is pervasive. Group clashes arising from ethnic, religious, and political differences, racial, economic, and class disparities, and disputes about environmental and technological degradation of the earth's resources are compelling examples. With these circumstances, the message in the life stories and teachings of the world's most notable peace leaders, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mohandas.K.Gandhi is needed more than ever. The ideals and examples they fostered can equip youth with conflict resolution ideas and methodologies to transform their lives and communities. The workshop will foster youth engagement in promoting the model through conceptual clarity and skill development.
The Turning Point Summit includes a five-month engagement program, where participants will be involved in pre-workshop sessions, workshops, and post-workshop evaluations. Thirty participants will learn from eminent faculties of the world's top universities and connect with their peers on dialogue and collaborative work. They will receive various resource materials and instruction on nonviolence and peace strategies they can apply to their lives and in their communities.
