Peace education is the process of acquiring knowledge and skills, that foster values and behavior to live in harmony with oneself, with others and with nature. Through this initiative, the foundation will hand pick youths across India and educate them on the importance as well as impact of peace. These Peace Champions would then have responsibility to educate a pre-set number of youth to reach an annual target.
The digital book has been developed to understand the past, present & future of peace. The foundation proposes to create a full peace educative module based on this book going forward. This book takes you through the journey of peace since ancient times, compels us to think how it is important to embed the self awareness concepts in our daily lives and use technology to create awareness and develop culture of peace.
