Jai Jagat 2021 – Nonviolent ECOnomy Campaign

“The world has enough for everyone’s need, but not enough for everyone’s greed”

K. Gandhi

We need to ask ourselves:

What changes can we and must we take to restore the health of the earth and humanity?

Jai Jagat movement has been trying to facilitate a platform where solutions are exchanged, and local experiences are highlighted to answer these questions. The platform capacitates:

Civil society
Grassroots movements
Government authorities and Intergovernmental organizations
Academicians, among others

Jai Jagat is encouraging people to take up actions and practices ´from the bottom´, based on Gandhi´s vision that everyone has a role to play in countering inequality and promoting inclusion. This vision called for:

Simplification of needs or the self-limitation of desire;
A decentralized, home-based, handicraft-oriented life that is respectful of both the natural and environmental world, rather than the modes of production which are centralized, industrial and mechanical; and
Trusteeship or guardianship of ethics and spirituality over economics.
Valuing local production (swadeshi).

The next ten years (2021-2030), are “the defining decade” coined by Tom Brookes of the European Climate Foundation, converges with one of the long-term goals of Jai Jagat campaign, that is to promote Nonviolent ECOnomy as a holistic, practical and ECOcentric approach for societies living in harmony, justice and peace.
