institution
About me / us
The Gandhi Foundation exists to spread knowledge and understanding of the life and work of Mohandas Gandhi (1869-1948). Our most important aim is to explain and demonstrate the continuing relevance of Gandhi’s insights and actions for all of us in the UK. The Gandhi Foundation promotes:

1. Nonviolence to replace war and aggression

2. Decentralised, egalitarian economic systems such as cooperatives and trusteeships

3. Simple lifestyles that avoid an endless quest for more possessions and superficial experiences. This is essential to preserve the planet’s finite resources and prevent ecological disaster

4. Democratic systems that are decentralised, human-scale, and involve the active participation of everyone

5. Tolerant pluralistic societies. Gandhi regarded different religions and philosophies as each possessing some but not the whole truth

6. Respect for animals and an end to their exploitation by humans
