HWPL World Peace Summit to Take Place in Incheon, South Korea
HWPL Peace Summit will be held to promote the peaceful reunification of the two Koreas and international law for peace
For the first time since 2014, Heavenly Culture, World Peace Restoration of Light (HWPL) will host the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit Incheon, South Korea from September 2018, 17th to 19th.
For the past four years, this annual summit has been a platform for global leaders in politics, religion, law, education, civil society and media to discuss practical and fundamental ways to achieve a world of peace for future generations.
In this year’s summit, participants will discuss --
1) Gathering national and regional support for turning the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) into a legally binding instrument
2) Fostering and improving interfaith dialogues to find a trustworthy religious scripture
3) Promoting the role of educators in spreading a culture of peace
4) Planning peace-related projects led by women and youth
5) Building a network of journalists covering peace-related issues
The DPCW was proclaimed in 2016 and consists of 10 articles and 38 clauses; it calls upon states to refrain from the use of force, to reduce war potential by repurposing production facilities for weapons, to foster religious freedom and to spread a culture of peace.
Through high-level meetings with former and current heads of state and women leaders including the first ladies, participants will advocate the support for the DPCW at the national level. To date, the declaration has been backed by the Kingdom of eSwatini and Seychelles as well as the agreement of the president of Pan-African Parliament (PAP) on the implementation of peace-related institutions and projects based on the principles of the DPCW throughout Africa.
