Youth forum for micro peace actions

On the eve of the Martyrs' Day of Mahatma Gandhi, the Chennai-based Gandhi Peace Foundation (GPF) plans to organise ‘Youth Forums' in schools and colleges to encourage the youth to undertake ‘micro actions for peace'.

This project will be completed in three stages in three days.

First: Youth will get an orientation on “Peace Education based on Gandhian values” by participating in the one-day workshop to be held on January 27 in Chennai. Resource book of 51 lessons (that appeared in The Hindu Young World) along with the methodology of promoting a culture of peace will be provided.

Second: The youth will reach out to nearby schools and conduct a workshop on the same theme for students of Stds VI-VIII for two hours on January 28 ( GPF will organise the workshops in schools)

Third: The youth will share their experiences in the one-day seminar to be held on January 30 and evolve a plan to organise such ‘youth forums' in their institutions. They will be awarded certificates titled ‘Youth Peace Educator'.

Interested college students and school teachers may register their names through their institutions by paying Rs.200 towards cost of resource book, lunch, note book and pen on or before January 21.
