ICPNA - Conferences  Conference Declarations UNO Association

In consonance with Anuvibha’s avowed objective of popularizing ahimsa globally, the most significant project it undertook was to organize a series of international conferences of different aspects of peace and nonviolent action. Dr. S.L. Gandhi, the Secretary General of Anuvibha was entrusted with this responsibility. Three successful conferences have been organized so far. Anuvibha organizes seminars and symposiums on various issues relating to peace and nonviolence from time to time in honour of the visiting overseas delegations and also separately as regular features.


The First International Conference on Peace and Nonviolent Action, ICPNA, was organized at Ladnun in December 1988. The theme of the conference was ‘unifying forces of peace and nonviolence’. The Ladnun Declaration issued by the delegates at the concluding session has been hailed as a practical action plan for the eradication of violence from the face of this beautiful planet. The international Centre of Anuvibha based at Jaipur has succeeded in having it endorsed by a large number of organizations and individuals from India and abroad.

The Second International Conference on Peace and Nonviolent Action (II ICPNA) was organized in association with fourteen internationally acclaimed organizations in February 1992 at its newly built PEACE PALACE at Rajsamand near Udaipur (Rajasthan). It was attended by a large number of delegates hailing from 25 countries, despite the Gulf War raging at that time. Its theme was ‘evolving a viable system to train and orient people in nonviolence’. The II ICPNA issued a declaration called the Rajasthan Declaration on Training in Nonviolence. ANUVIBHA is trying its best to follow up the recommendations contained in it. It organized a youth camp at Rajsamand to impart training in nonviolence to hundreds of youths. It now aims to launch a worldwide campaign to train and orient the young and old in nonviolent actions in cooperation with the organizations having similar aims and objectives.
