World Educators are gathered in South Korea for Peace Education to seek a long-term conflict resolution for the current global environment shaded by violence, interethnic conflicts through a long-term approach to Peacebuilding-education

“Peace Education Development Forum for Spreading a Culture of Peace” will be held by Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL), an international NGO under the United Nations Department of Public Information (UN DPI) on September 17th at Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Over 70 global experts in education including ministers of education, presidents of universities, professors, principals and teachers from 21 countries are participating in the forum.

According to HWPL, this forum will address in-depth discussions in “the establishment of a network for global educators to co-develop education contents and spreading a culture of peace through peace education”.

Mrs. Shailaja Adhikary, Principal of Euro School, Nepal is reported to have said “I have a high expectation of this very venue to discuss peace education for educators with different cultures and nationalities to make peace a reality,” emphasized Mrs. Shailaja Adhikary, Principal of Euro School, Nepal.

HWPL has formed a partnership with 117 education institutions globally to endorse and implement peace education by designating them as “HWPL Peace Academy” respectively, which includes India, Israel, Kosovo, and the Philippines.

As promoted in the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) proclaimed by HWPL for global peace building, HWPL has been building a cooperation with education specialists around the globe to provide opportunities of education to establish a culture of peace.

Juan Carlos Torres, Professor of Don Bosco University, said, “I want the upcoming generation to be able to have conflict resolution instead of thinking that the person with more guns will win. It is important to teach them how to resolve conflict in a peaceful way and have a peaceful mind. I will attend the education session in the WARP Summit and share about the peace education El Salvador needs with the teachers throughout the world.”

In the forum under the 3rd Annual Commemoration of the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit, 70 global experts in education including ministers of education, presidents of universities, professors, principals and teachers from 21 countries will participate. According to HWPL, this forum will address in-depth discussions in “the establishment of a network for global educators to co-develop education contents and spreading a culture of peace through peace education”.

“I have a high expectation of this very venue to discuss peace education for educators with different cultures and nationalities to make peace a reality,” emphasized Mrs. Shailaja Adhikary, Principal of Euro School, Nepal.

Along with this forum at the WARP Summit, sessions for peace building by global experts will be discussed, including 2017 Conference for the Implementation of the DPCW, 3rd International Religious Leaders’ Conference, Region-Specific Discussion for the Implementation of the DPCW, 5th HWPL International Law Peace Committee Forum, Conference for Global Peace Media Network, and 2017 IWPG Network Forum.
Beginning in 2014 with peace initiatives on global cooperation in international law for peace and religious harmony, the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit has been hosted annually by HWPL to advocate participation of people from all levels of society in peacebuilding.
