Abstractelsewhere in this magazine. ICON Australia seeks ways of developing a culture of nonviolence. Such a culture is much more than the avoidance of violence. It challenges imbalances of power, based on race, gender and other identities. It entails that we address the inequalities of wealth in society. It requires and contributes to a context of sustainable development. The role of education in schools and universities is central in building such a society. Our Vision Our vision is of a nonviolent society based on the celebration of our common humanity and of the natural environment that sustains us. Our Mission ICON works to make strategic interventions in education – development of educators and curricula, teaching and writing – that challenge structural violence, enable learning untainted by violence and advance a culture of nonviolence. It works through reflective practice and focused research to develop and disseminate its understanding, and to build networks of educators with a similar vision and commitment.
