Primary Social Change Interest
Why are you interested in the Gandhi-King Community?
I believe nonviolence is the most effective way of solving problems. I teach nonviolence at Lapinjärvi Educational Center in Lapinjärvi, Finland. Every August I organise a summer festival called "Loviisa Peace Forum" in a small costal town in southern Finland. This year we are going to have seminar about the Arab Spring. The keynote speakers are Dr. Tahal Cheniti, the General Secretary of Tunisian Red Crescent and Mr. Kelving Ong, head of the peace mediation unit in UN.
