Romania Youth Delegate at the UN

I found out by chance and absolutely at the last minute that in Romania, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, UN Romania and others are supporting a contest for election of two Romania youth delegates at the UN.

Last year, two wonderful youth participated and upon returning they have engaged in serious lobbying for the creation of this process of selection for 2007-2008. They have succeeded and Romanian youth are now being supported in such an endeavour. Pretty amazing job Corina Murafa and… Continue

It is quite an interesting one, and some of us will be glad to find… Continue

An experiment in Philippines



A small group of Filipino students in America met with me. They were doing their Masters course at the USC. They wanted to do something for their fellow-citizens in the villages of Philippines. They met with the EdVantage Foundation, a foundation that was co-founded by me. Incidentally, the EdVantage Foundation provides opportunities for Indian students to study in the US.



After several meetings over coffee, we decided on the following:



1) We would target the middle… Continue

LAND FOR GOD

I would like to tell you all about my new project - Land for God. This is a project to buy land which is registered as belonging to God so that it belongs in effect to everyone and to no-one. I wish to start this in the U.K. where I live and it would be wonderful to spread this around the world. Of course, at least in the U.K. you couldn't register it officially as belonging to God so an organisation would be needed to administer this project , a holding organisation. We are fund-raising to… Continue

stereotyping

Hello, I am wondering, why people strongly keep their beliefs in someone’s difference, even if they could live together, work together? I am wondering how strongly politics can influence on the public mood and on group identity? Would be glad to receive references (and links) on theories.

Role of a researcher and moral responsibility?

Hello all,

I am looking forward to making a serious dialogue by us on these pages. Being student of Anthropology of Reconciliation and Reconstruction and working on Radical Religious Politics in South Asia and Exploring Key Factors behind it, I have several questions to discuss with all of you.

For example, we Anthropologists are really confused over the dynamic role of researchers who suddenly come across conflicts, wars, killings and riots in their research area. Such…

Women in Peace Process

Women play an integral part in any peace process. However, it is felt that women enable to bring about the initial change process. Yet in the long run they do not or rather are not able to secure much change in their own lives. Systems do not change in favour of women. What are your views on this? Please feel free to direct me to specific readings and works worth reading on women in politics, in armed conflict and in peace processes.

Agenda 14: Teachers In Middle-school Education (TIME), led by Technocrats In Development Education (TIDE)

Agenda 14: TIME & TIDE waits for no one!

If you want to make a long-term difference to the world around us at the grassroots level, one has to start with the middle-school student. As they say: "Catch them young". A small group of us have started a program called "Agenda 14". It is really an agenda for children who are about 14 years of age. It is an age when they begin to think for themselves. Character-building starts at this age. This is also the time when the child has to make…

Make a difference

I believe one person can make a difference in peace and development. To make and see the difference, one has to be different and think and act differently. For that reason, at MIDEGO we are creating products that help people make a difference and find the true meaning of their lives.

Join our programs and find your unique mission and start to make a difference every day!

Let me know what your goals are and we'll help you make them happen.
