Every year on 2nd October, the birth anniversary of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi or Mahatma Gandhi is observed with prayers, services and tributes across the world. Gandhi considered
nonviolence to be a philosophy, a principle and an experience based on which it is possible to build a
better society. Incorporating non-violence as a resistance tool, Gandhi took the forefront of India’s freedom struggle movement against the colonial British rule. Raised in a Hindu family in coastal
Gujarat’s Porbandar, Gandhi ‘s(popularly known as Bapu) relentless work to ensure India’s Independence from British colonialism fueled the UN General Assembly’s decision on 15 June, 2007, to adopt a resolution to celebrate 2 October as the International Day of Non-Violence.
To mark this day, Active Nonviolence Education Center is organizing a virtual panel discussion with five eminent personalities on Active Nonviolence to speak on various topics related to nonviolence.
