Pace e Bene Australia has been doing incredible work to build a nonviolent world.  Last April they led a Nonviolent Interfaith Leadership program for young people in Melbourne.  On October 31 they start the next five-day program.

Watch this inspiring video from their recent April gathering!

Peb Australia NV Leadership posterThis program recognizes that every generation has its challenges to face and ours is no different.  We face crucial social, political, military, economic and ecological challenges, some of which pose substantial threats to a healthy future for our humanity.  Our pages in history are being written now.

They believe it is going to take young people who are willing to cultivate these capacities in order to change things:

  • Skilled in nonviolent leadership,
  • Highly motivated towards interfaith dialogue and cooperation
  • Aligned with their identity and purpose at this time in history,
  • Strong and committed to their spirituality,
  • Deeply grounded with skills in self care
  • Able to stand firm for the reality of nonviolence, tolerance and justice for our shared communities.
