The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conferences themselves. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organisers, but it is expected that they contain ample time for general discussion. The preference is for one day workshops, but other schedules will also be considered.

Workshop 1: Sustainable and Peaceful Society Leading to Undivided Global Family

Scope: All human beings continually aspire for happy life, a fulfilling and successful life and the purpose of education is to provide adequate competence to actualize this aspiration. HVPE course is an innovative type of course input aimed at bringing about a perceptional transformation among the students by initiating a process of self-exploration. Through this course students are able to see that the only right evaluation leads to fulfilment in the relationship. This is the base of peaceful and sustainable society. Students imbibes social and emotional skills through the process of self-exploration with the help of this course. Many existing problems in the society are outcome of wrong evaluation of fellow human beings like gender-bias, cast-conflicts, class struggle, domination through power, communal violence and so on. All this problem could get permanent long-term solution when humans develops realization that their fellow human-beings are alike irrespective their cast, creed and religion. This HVPE course help students to develop this realization. HVPE follows a process of self-verification, on the basis of one’s own Natural Acceptance, leading to self-determination. It is not a process of assuming or a process of do’s and don’ts. It has been designed to be a part of the academic curriculum. It aims at Knowledge (right understanding) in the self, Love (feeling of being related to all) in thought and Compassion (the expression of the responsibility of being related to all) in behaviour and work.

1. HPVE course subject is to facilitate development of holistic perspective among students towards life and profession as well as towards happiness and prosperity based on a correct understanding of human reality and nature. Such a holistic perspective forms the basis of peaceful and sustainable societies.
2. This holistic understanding stated above in terms of ethical human conduct, trustful and mutual fulfilling human behavior and mutual enriching interaction with nature would help young enquiring minds in contributing towards global peace.
3. It would help students to appreciate the essential complementarity between ‘Social and Emotional Skills’ and professional skills to ensure sustained happiness and peace, which is the core aspiration of all human beings.

The feeling of relatedness that naturally expands from family to world family is the underlying mindset for an integrated or undivided society. Living in order starts with family order and naturally expands to living order in a group of families and onwards right up to world family order, which is the basis for universal human order. This course provides the essential guidelines for and develops commitment for a humane society.
