Welcome to Gandhi’s Be Magazine.
Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
Inspired by the Ones who have gone before us… Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Cesar Chavez, Dorothy Day, Nelson Mandela, and many more… And partnering with Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson Arun Gandhi… Our mission is to inspire, empower, and activate the next generation of Changemakers to “Be The Change” in their own lives and communities and to join with other people and nonviolent movements around the world becoming part of the story of change…
A platform for change
Gandhi’s Be Magazine is an online publication and a platform for change. We are a unique web-based magazine in that we carry Gandhi’s message of nonviolence and peace as our dominant theme and we have branded our approach, “compassionate journalism.” Our website, flip book, podcasts, web video series, blogs, profiles, digital library, how-to guides, and social media combined make a powerful force for Changemakers around the world to create, connect, collaborate, and communicate.
One person can make a difference
Being inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s life, we know that one person can make a difference that ripples out and impacts others in profound and life-changing ways and we believe people working together are the most valuable resource when it comes to changing the world.
Every person is a Changemaker
Every person is a Changemaker. From the Arab Spring in the Middle East to the Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong, the social media revolution has activated people and nonviolent movements working for freedom and democracy around the world.
In order to change the world, we must first start with changing ourselves
“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for,” as the Hopi Elders say. And we are at the most pivotal moment in Earth’s history. People are recognizing that there is this macro level of social change and nonviolent movements around the world being led predominately by youth armed with technology, but at the same time there is also a micro level where every person–young and old, rich and poor alike–must recognize and embrace the fact that in order to change the world, we must first start with changing ourselves, and that is the essence of Gandhi’s “Be The Change.”
Where we’re heading
With that understanding as we roll out our strategic plan for Gandhi’s Be Magazine in the next two years, and with the help of a creative team of Peace Journalism fellows and college/university students and interns working as ambassadors of change, Gandhi’s Be Magazine hopes to become this generation’s go-to source for Changemakers to CREATE, CONNECT, COLLABORATE, and COMMUNICATE what we want our future to BE.
