Non-violent Leadership for Interfaith Peacebuilders


Nonviolent Leadership for Interfaith Peacebuilders

I would like to draw your attention to a very exciting opportunity entitled, Nonviolent Leadership for Interfaith Peacebuilders. It is a new 8-day residential program designed for young people aged 18-30 years from a variety of different faith backgrounds who hold a common passion to lead their generation towards the goal of a world without violence, intolerance and injustice. It is offered free of charge to successful applicants (excl travel). 

The program involves two modules in 2012 and includes supporting participants to engage in a community project developed by each participant in his or her individual faith community. The 8 day residential retreat will take place at the beautiful and idyllic surrounds of Amberley Retreat and Spirituality Centre on the Yarra River in MELBOURNE where participants will journey into the depths of learning the ways and skills of nonviolent living, leadership, interfaith work, community work, social change, developing one's identity, purpose and sense of belonging and self-care.
