A World Peace and Friendship Walk with Nitin Sonawane

Join our discussion with Nitin Sonawane who left his home in Pune, South India, in 2016, inspired by Mahatma Gandhi to discover peace wherever he went.

About the Event


Walking as the World Peace & Friendship Movement, Nitin Sonawane, an engineer turned peace activist, talks on the eve of leaving Georgia where he was sheltered by a family during the coronavirus restrictions.


Heading for Turkey, Nitin does not know where he will stay, eat along the way or find the next stable Wi-Fi. His open manner has seen him through East Asia, Africa, the Americas and Europe. The discussion pivots on the sharing of ideas, cultures and food. Nitin has just completed a 450km walk raising funds for migrant workers in India caught in the Covid-19 chaos, unable to feed their families.
