Mandela-Gandhi Youth Conference: Delegates call for return to Gandhian values to address global challenges threatening humanity

Delegates from a dozen countries at the Mandela-Gandhi Youth Conference in South Africa called for a return to Gandhian values to address global challenges threatening humanity.

The conference, hosted at Pietermaritzburg in South Africa was part of a three-day commemoration of the historic incident 125 years ago when on June 7, 1893, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, a young lawyer then, was thrown off a train compartment reserved for whites only.
Diaspora youth from India, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Zambia Egypt, Malawi, Seychelles and Mozambique joined more than 120 South African youngsters to debate and share views on whether the Gandhian philosophy of Satyagraha, Ahimsa and Sarvodaya was relevant today and whether it could be used to find solutions for the problems around the world.  

A resolution also passed unanimously at the conference which said the youth of this world, citizens of diverse nationalities, ideologies, backgrounds, colour, creed, race and sex, embrace the ideals of the Mahatma and Madiba as apostles of peace and truth.
