After participating in the facilitator training workshop on the Learning To Live Together Intercultural and Interfaith Program for Ethics Education from 11th to 15th of July 2018 Bandaragama, Sri Lanka, I thought and understood how different the concept was. To bring in peace first of all a person should understand what is peace and should have peace within. To love the humanity you should love yourself first. For me it was first understanding yourself before changing the world. The changes should come within along with the understanding the similarities and differences, then to accept and respect. Each person’s priority may differ according to their standard of life and to bring in all this people into humanity as one family under the roof.
To do this work, first you should bring in different people of different faiths and culture and understand value of life being together in peace and harmony. once the human being grows up, he is surrounded with so many aspects of life as gender, life standard, the school you got educated, from what type of a family background you come, economy , occupation, culture and many more. and everyone builds up an image of own with the thinking of “that my way of life is the best” and does not pay heed to any other way. Then again the same type of groups get together and different groups are found from different angles such as occupation example: teachers, doctors, laborers. And people look into these groups in different ways though the basic need of every human being is the same, love, understanding, accept and respect is needed or expected by every human being from the child hood up to whatever the age you live. It is difficult for the adult to change because of the set ideas and goals they already have. Therefore it is much easy to mold the young child to understand the differences and then to accept and live in the society with own identity while learning to live together. Each human being plays a different role in life and each person has got different talents of their own and they are specialized in some way. So this different images will make a beautiful picture called ‘the world’ if it comes together with their own identity without fear and doubts. This is what we need to paint a beautiful picture with different colours. To bring out this quality to the world we should begin a frame work from the childhood as children have no set goals and their minds can be utilized in any manner. Therefore it is much more stronger to start this work with children. But then again the ones who are handling the children are mainly parents and teachers. So it is the parents and teachers cultivate thoughts on children and develop that in them, which can either bring peace or harm to man kind. This is the reason that I thought to make the parents and teachers aware of the importance of learning to live together, make them aware of the present situation of the world, demand and the needful aspects to make it a peaceful place by making the adult understanding the ways and means of bringing changes in children so that we get the cooperation of the adults to achieve this goal.
You should make the adult to realize their present situations whether they are happy or unhappy, what are the changes they need to have, to bring in peace and co-existence. By discussions and giving real experiences to share their views and ideas with each other so that they come to an understanding of the need to change, in a better way to learn to live together and how should we do it.
To create environment for children in play, sports meet, drawing, arts and crafts, exhibition, drama, concerts, camping, tour etc. and provide opportunities for them to mingle with children from different backgrounds to understand others through their own experiences and share their feelings and to build up their own bonds with each other by learning to live together we can have a better world of understanding, love and peace.
