Andre Brugiroux
Andre Brugiroux
On the road since he was 17, travelling to every corner of the earth, Andre Brugiroux has visited a total of 241 countries and autonomous territories. Throughout his travels, he sought other people and other cultures but found they were all members of "one family" and "one faith" - the Baha'i Faith.

Author of several books, most notably One People One Planet: The Adventures of a World Citizen, Andre Brugiroux talks about the Baha'i philosophy that "the world is one country, mankind its citizens".

From Perth, Marjorie Tidman, a member of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of Australia, also shares the Baha'i teaching of peace and personal challenge.
