An initiative of Senator Lomuti, the October 12 meeting followed a move earlier this year by the Ministry of Justice and legislators to expand the Peace Education Program across Italian correctional facilities. Italian officials are also now looking for ways to expand the innovative workshop series in educational settings for the benefit of all.
More than 175,000 people have already participated in the Peace Education Program in 70 countries, proving to be a powerful tool to help people of all kinds discover their own inner strength and personal peace.
