Empathy, justice, and moral behavior!
Ahmedabad: Following the principles of the father of the Nation and implementing the same, the Centre for Environment Education (CEE) in collaboration with the Sabarmati Ashram has introduced a course in the schools of ‘Learning Non-Violence’.
‘Learning Non-Violence’ programme initiated by the CEE aims to develop pedagogy for concepts such as conflict resolution and reduction of violent behaviour in society. It was launched in 2016 in four city-based schools on a pilot basis.
“From this academic year, the course will be taught at 10 city schools,” said Kartikeya Sarabhai, the director of CEE and a trustee of the Sabarmati Ashram. “It is the centenary year of the Sabarmati Ashram and 2019 will mark Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary. Thus, it is time to talk about Mahatma’s fundamental idea non-violence with children. The response has been encouraging.”
