What is the Program?
“…It‚Äôs a unique opportunity to critique dominant patterns of violence and control and learn the first steps for imagining nonviolent alternatives.¬† I don‚Äôt know of anyone else offering a similar program.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI am a totally different person from who I was 5 days ago‚ÄĚ
You can help invest in people being trained in Nonviolent Leadership.
The depth of transformation this program produced in the¬†people from different faith and different local communities from right across Australia has been¬†INCREDIBLE. ¬†Those people who attended the course have now returned to their communities across Australia and are implementing their own projects to counter intolerance and violence in their communities.¬† These leaders have¬†gained :
- A deeper commitment to living and working from an interfaith perspective;
- Knowledge, skills and awareness of nonviolence
- Leadership skills to help their local communities take action to counter intolerance and violent extremist messages;
- Begun engaging their communities through applying their knowledge to¬†community projects that is expected¬†reaching hundreds of others
- The necessary skills to sustain their nonviolent community leadership by developing and participating in a national network of nonviolent leaders.
