Apply for a Summer Institute on Gandhi, Sustainability, and Happiness
This year's focus is on Mohandas K. Gandhi, Sustainability, and Happiness.
From the website:
"Gandhi’s enduring significance is anchored in his uncompromising commitment to ahimsa or nonviolence—the experience of oneness with others and nature--as the foundation for his vision of humanity, and for the well-being and happiness of all, which he called sarvodaya. Sustainability refers to the ability to sustain life, while maintaining an ecological balance that is rooted in caring for nature and caring for the needs of generations to come. Happiness endures in a solidly grounded sense of well-being, of flourishing, and of having found meaning and purpose in life. This two-week residential institute will focus on examining the relevance of Gandhi’s thought for the current discourses on sustainability and happiness.
"This institute will provide a select group of forty K-12 educators an extraordinary opportunity for educational leadership by becoming adept at integrating in school curricula the lessons based on critical understanding of Gandhi’s life and its significance for achieving the goals of sustainability and enduring happiness."
The deadline for applications is April 8, 2013. Early application is strongly recommended.

Several of IHE's M.Ed. graduates have participated in previous Ahimsa Center summer institutes and said that the experience was "life-changing."
