2017 Gandhi Foundation Annual Lecture – Mahatma Gandhi for the 21st Century

The Annual Lecture of the Gandhi Foundation will be held on Thursday 28th September 2017 at The Nehru Centre. 

Refreshments will be available from 18.00 for the lecture to start at 18.30. 

The subject of the lecture is: Mahatma Gandhi for the 21st Century and will be delivered by Satish Kumar, peace activist, environmentalist and editor of 'Resurgence'. 

Capitalism in Western Europe and America and Communism in Eastern Europe and China have failed to solve the problems of poverty, pollution, waste, wars, political conflict and many other human and environmental problems of our time. 

The philosophy and ideals promoted by Mahatma Gandhi embedded in the principles of non-violence, economic equity, sustainability, spirituality, arts and crafts and decentralised politics and local economics offers a genuine way out of current human predicament. Free market orthodoxy on the one hand and state control on the other deprive the majority of people from a decent, fulfilling and equitable life. The Gandhian ideal is the antidote to such a capitalist and communist model. 

In his lecture Satish Kumar will illuminate the relevance of Mahatma Gandhi in the 21st Century.
