Sandeep Silas is the forerunner of an initiative called “Garland of Peace” (www.garlandofpeace.com). He conceived this singular plan some years ago. One of its main goals is to “Declare War Ruins as Peace Heritage Sites.” What this aims to do is highlight the real face of war effects, war crimes, and life-after-war. The sites will place this before the public and ideally serve as a deterrent; so that world leaders would walk the extra mile to solve problems through diplomacy, and refrain from pressing the ‘button’ to war. The initiative would make a case for conflict resolution through dialogue and negotiation stronger. Sandeep earned his EMPA from Maxwell in 2008.
