Neohumanism in Action:
Educating for Sustainable and Compassionate Futures
Ananda Marga Gurukula celebrates its 25th Anniversary with a global meeting in Asheville, North Carolina, USA, July 11-16, 2105. The theme of the celebration is Neohumanism in Action: Educating for a Sustainable and Compassionate Future. We invite all educators and neohumanist activists to share in creating a sustainable and compassionate future and adopting the actions required to expand our Neohumanist institutions and projects. This expansion will include developing the P. R. Sarkar Institute (PRSI), an initiative of Ananda Marga Gurukula (AMGK), which will function as an umbrella body for all disciplines of research, development and dissemination of works related to Shrii P. R. Sarkar’s ideas. (More information: firstname.lastname@example.org.) A Neohumanist College for online courses is also being planned. http://nhcollege.gurukul.edu. Come celebrate and work with us for the expansion of a Neohumanist Education for all, as envisioned by Shrii P. R. Sarkar to create a truly compassionate and sustainable society.
Neohumanism in Action in this issue of Gurukula Network
This month’s Gurukula Network features a bright array of Neohumanism in Action ranging from the Edible Forest Garden of Brian Ragbourn in Ireland, comprised of exotic plants from around the world, Master Units in Portugal and Venezuela that offer models for sustainable communities and local economies to Khun Krisada Kampanatsanyakorn’s model of economic development utilizing energy efficient habitats and renewable energy that makes use of a vanadium fuel cell. The welcoming spirit of Neohumanist Education in Action shines through at the Sunshine School in Switzerland where Abadit, a Eritrean teacher and refugee from her war-torn country, finds a home and contributes the gifts of her heritage to a NHE school in Switzerland. At our River school in Maleny, Australia the love of our animal friends is attested to when some parents built a chicken coop at our Early Childhood Centre to rescue battery hens that were facing euthanasia at the end of their egg laying life. At the New Day School in Portland, an adjacent .75 acre parking lot has been converted into a luscious garden and Farm to Plate program. In Porto Allgre, Brazil, Projovem, the Rescue Program for abused youth, is saving lives in schools and on the streets. This array of Neohumanism in Action, along with the other articles of this issue, are testaments to the inspiration of Neohumanist philosophy given to us by Shrii P.R. Sarkar.
