18 April 2021: Living Curriculum #13: Vinya Ariyaratne – President of the Sarvodaya Movement

Updated: Apr 19


As part of our LIVING CURRICULUM SERIES, we launch an interview with GLOBAL PIONEER addressing AWAKENING OF ALL: TOWARDS INTEGRATED SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION, DR. VINYA ARIYARATNE.


Dr. Vinya Ariyante has been a pioneer in transformative holistic education and is the president of the Sarvodaya Movement, the largest integrated community development organisation in Sri Lanka that aims at complete social transformation. As a physician specialised in public health, Dr Ariyaratne has also been at the frontline of humanitarian response to disasters throughout his medical career.


In this deeply humane interview Dr. Ariyaratne evokes the Sarvodaya movement’s unchanged belief in the innate potential of every human being and unswerving commitment to support ‘the awakening of all’. Growing up in a family home which was donated to Sarvodaya when he was young, deeply shaped his own values and forged his commitment to community service and to simple living. To Ariyaratne, the future of the ‘Home for Humanity’ movement is rooted above all, in shared values, oneness with nature, respect for diversity, and the spirit of family between all humanity.
