fulMore about Jai Jagat 2020: ‘On the move for Justice and Peace’
JJ2020 is the brainchild of Ekta Parishad, a land rights campaigning organisation that has mobilised excluded and marginalised people to influence Indian government policy through it’s Gandhi-inspired long walks. Ekta Parishad’s practices, which include training youth leaders, are rooted in an ethos of non-violence, social justice and community harmony.
The Four Pillars of Jai Jagat 2020 are:
- Eradicating Poverty
- Eliminating Social Exclusion
- Ameliorating the Climate Crisis
- Halting Conflict and Violence
See www.jaijagat2020.org for latest news on the global walk, which started in Delhi on 2 October 2019.
