Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP)
The Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development was established with the generous support of the Government of India. We are an integral part of UNESCO, and the organization’s specialist institute on education for peace and sustainable development to foster global citizenship. In 2009, the UNESCO General Conference decided to set up an institute focusing on peace and sustainability education based in the vast and rapidly growing Asia-Pacific region. In 2012, the Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, and the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, launched the institute.
