Biography Akaash Maharaj - Practical Idealism
My personal background, with sections on my formal education, professional history, voluntary service, and honoursAkaash Maharaj Practical Idealism

A Life in Progress

I have lived in Canada most of my life, other than during my University years which I passed at Oxford taking my degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, and where I served for a year as President of the Oxford University Student Union.

Professionally, I work in peacebuilding, pluralism, and conservation.

In my volunteer life, I represent Canada as an equestrian athlete; serve as Ambassador-at-Large for the Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption; write and broadcast on democracy and diplomacy; and contribute my labour to a few philanthropic and community organisations.

The tabs above link to a broader view of the eccentric spheres of activity in my life: my formal education; my professional engagements; my voluntary and community service; and the baubles that have occasionally come out of them.
