Dear Academicians/Educational Administrators/Researchers/Executives and Officials

Greetings from IAEWP

We are pleased to introduce the International Association of Educators for World Peace (IAEWP) as a not-for-profit, non political and a non-governmental organization geared towards the attainment of international understanding and world peace through education. It operates as an NGO under the mandate of the United Nations having more than 100 Chapters established throughout the world. In 1973, the association became a non-governmental organization for both the UN & Economic and Social council (ECOSOC). It also became a part of the UN Department of Public Information (UNDPI) and it was officially linked with UNICEF and UN Conference on Environmental Development (UNCED). In 1987, The UN Secretary General Javier Perez de Cuellar designated IAEWP as a messenger of peace for the world on behalf of the UN General Assembly in recognition of the significant contributions made to the peace programme and for achieving the objectives of the 1986 International Year of Peace.

The purpose of the IAEWP is to contribute to the improvement of the man’s ability to live in peace, to educate world citizens for peaceful co-existence and cooperation so that all people may have free access to accrue the benefits of science and civilization. The aim of the philosophy is to create a sort of action that will move all nations on the pathway of peace with a firm belief and confidence to achieve Global Harmony. The International Association of Educators for World Peace (IAEWP) urges the creation of a new breed of scientists, philosophers, parents, students, educators, and especially leaders who are inspired with the Vision for Restoring World Peace.

Thus the Mandate is guided by four Overarching Principles:

  1. Promoting International Understanding and World Peace through Education;
  2. Protecting the Environment to Preserve World Peace by avoiding ‘Resource Wars’;
  3. Safe Guarding Human Rights and
  4. To Encourage Peace Talks between different Groups and Religions in the Region.

From this perspective, during the Gokhale Education Society’s Twenty Five Months Centenary Celebration Programme (April 2016- April 2018), IAEWP in collaboration with Gokhale Education Society’s H.P.T. Arts and R.Y.K. Science College and S.M.R.K.-B.K.-A.K. Mahila Mahavidyalaya, Nashik is organizing the 19th World Congress on “Peace Education for Good Governance and Non-Violence” on October 24-26, 2016. This World Congress at Kumbh Nagari, Nashik coincides with the 150th Birth Anniversary Year of Namdar Gopal Krishna Gokhale (Guru of Mahatma Gandhi).
