    CSP-AP is a three-week peacebuilding and sustainable development course. It invites youth leaders, community organizers, and scholars from different countries and cultural backgrounds to learn and experience the integration of sustainable development and peacebuilding, including issues such as trauma healing, human rights, gender issues, restorative justice, and non-violent action. It teaches students how to be peacebuilders in every facet of their lives.

    The program’s home is in Asia Plateau in Panchgani, India – a center for introspection and dialogue – is an international conference center for Initiatives of Change.

    The cornerstone of CSP’s curriculum is highlighting the need for personal transformation in order to find true reconciliation & sustainable solutions to conflicts.
