Peace Education Courses

During the months of August, September, and October 2023, educators from the Salesian Province of Mumbai were immersed in an enlightening induction program that focused on Peace Education.  This initiative had been eagerly anticipated and fulfilled a longstanding aspiration of Fr. Savio Silveira, SDB, the Provincial of Mumbai. He graciously invited Fr. Peter Gonsalves, SDB, a professor specializing in Peace Communication and Media Education at the Salesian University in Rome, to be the resource person. The course was based on the downloadable manual titled Exercises in Peace Education (2018).
