The proposed Chai & Just Chat panel of experts will examine the different functions essential to the construction of peace and creating a culture of nonviolence.

The panel will foster dialogues on the importance of education, ethics, global and religious movements focused on people to people relationships and creating nonviolent social change in societies.
Martin Luther King Jr.’s after his trip to India, “In a real sense, Mahatma Gandhi embodied in his life certain universal principles that are inherent in the moral structure of the universe, and these principles are as inescapable as the law of gravitation.”
2019 marks the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. “If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with woman. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?” says Gandhiji.
Chai & just Chat will discuss the role and power of women at all decision making levels and shifting dialogues to sustain peace in challenging contexts. This Chai & just Chat is designed to encourage debate on ways to create peace through informal, apolitical and grassroots mechanisms; People Power.
