About this event
Mahatma Gandhi’s life and message are as relevant in the 21st Century as they were in his own time. 2019 is the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mahatma.
This year, in India and around the world, people will be celebrating the life and message of Mahatma Gandhi and the contribution he made for the upliftment of humanity and wellbeing of the planet earth. Join the celebration with Vandana Shiva and Satish Kumar as they show that Mahatma Gandhi’s message is as relevant today as it was in his lifetime.
Vandana Shiva is a world renowned champion of earth democracy, sustainable agriculture and an ecological world view. She combines science with spiritual values. She is a tireless campaigner against industrial agriculture, genetic engineering of seeds and the modern economy destructive of ecological harmony.
Satish is a former monk and long-term peace and environment activist. He has been quietly setting the Global Agenda for change for over 50 years. He was just nine when he left his family home to join the wandering Jains and 18 when he decided he could achieve more back in the world, campaigning for land reform in India and working to turn Gandhi’s vision of a renewed India and a peaceful world into reality.
In 1973 Satish settled in the United Kingdom taking up the post of editor of Resurgence magazine, a position he has held ever since, making him the UK’s longest-serving editor of the same magazine. During this time, he has been the guiding spirit behind a number of now internationally respected ecological and educational ventures including Schumacher College.

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
