Truth alone will endure, all the rest will be swept away before the tide of time M.K. Gandhi
On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi, we take inspiration from his iconic life and leadership characterized by the quest for Truth. Perhaps in this timeless pursuit lies the key to real, holistic, and sustainable change for our world today. This event brings together esteemed change-makers who have been striving to make a better world through tireless work in their various fields such as Education, Philosophy, Ecology, Anthropology, Governance, Microfinance, and Corporate Responsibility.
Drawing on their experiences, New Acropolis will publish a resolution outlining a vision of leadership rooted in the search for Truth, in honor of Gandhi's Legacy. This will be shared with our affiliate organizations across 60 countries, as part of a collective effort to build a brighter tomorrow.
