The Gandhi Experiment

Peace Building In Schools


Become trained in the internationally successfully student program: Global Participation - it starts with us! so you can take these activities directly into your school. 


What would happen if we equipped our children with the tools and strategies to create peace?


Margaret Hepworth, former Head of Campus at Preshil School, presents a dynamic new workshop for educators.  When seeking to implement the Australian Curriculum’s General Capabilities: Ethical Understanding, Intercultural Understanding and Personal and Social Capability, don’t just tick the box. Make this learning meaningful and significant to all our futures.


Questions for your students and you:

  • What values do you want to see in this world for your children / your grandchildren?

  • Waste / overpopulation / environmental sustainability – what have these got to do with peace?

  • Peace-makers as role-models. How did they achieve their dreams? What is their message for you?

  • You might be young, yet you are not insignificant. What is your role? Are you ready to take action?

  • How can we use our creative thoughts to build peace? What is ‘The Utopian Scale’?

  • Coming to peace with yourself; you have an innate peace-making ability. Let’s help you find it


This is bigger picture thinking in education:

In utilising de Bono’s theory of parallel thinking, in providing scope for the multiple intelligences and employing positive psychology, the program teaches you to engage young minds in action and aids them in extending themselves beyond themselves.


“One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.” Malala.

We invite you to be that teacher by initiating Global Participation - it starts with us! in your school.
