Sunium is hosting an online panel discussion with young international activists to celebrate the International Day of Non-Violence on October 2nd. During the discussion you will hear from globally recognised Youth Peace Ambassadors who will debate the importance of non-violence, respect for human rights and sustainable peace in turbulent areas.
The United Nations (UN) declared October 2nd as the International Day of Non-Violence in commemoration to the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, leader of the Indian independence movement and pioneer of non-violence philosophy. According to the UN, on this occasion we should “disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness“. Therefore, Sunium is inviting you to join our international panel for a live discussion with young leaders from the Eastern Europe, Middle East and South-East Asia.
