Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and key members of the entertainment industry discuss how to inspire awareness and promote human values through film, television and new media.
Their presentations will be followed by a moderated panel discussion exploring how changing the stories we see onscreen changes the stories we live as human beings.
As an ambassador of peace, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar plays a key role in conflict resolution and spreads his vision of nonviolence at public forums and gatherings worldwide. Regarded as a neutral figure with a sole agenda of peace, he represents hope to people in conflict. Through his initiatives and addresses, Shankar has consistently emphasized the need for reinforcing human values and recognizing humanity as our highest identity. Fostering interfaith harmony and calling for multicultural education as the remedy for fanaticism are significant parts of his efforts to achieve sustainable peace on our planet.
Shankar’s work has touched the lives of millions of people around the world, going beyond the barriers of race, nationality and religion with the message that there exists a “one-world family”; that inner and outer peace are possible; and that a stress-free, violence-free society can be created through service and the reawakening of human values.
