Nobody is born nonviolent

World without Wars and without Violence aims to develop a worldwide commitment to nonviolence as a methodology of action, as a social system and as a lifestyle. Its objective is to achieve a world free of wars as well as physical, economic, racial, religious, sexual, psychological, ecological and moral violence. “Human beings are historical beings whose mode of social action changes their own nature” (Silo). This is the root of both our responsibility and our freedom. And it opens our future.

Nobody is born violent... Or nonviolent for that matter. So Gandhi's "Be the change you want to see in the world" is a great invitation to get rid of the rubbish this violent system has fed us and transform ourselves into the intentional beings that can create the world we all want. See the

Active Nonviolence training (ANVT) 1


A man and his son have a car accident.
The father dies at the scene and the son is taken urgently to hospital for surgery. 
At the Operating Theatre the surgeon says: "I cannot operate on this boy, he is my son."

How is it possible?

The surgeon is a woman!
