[HWPL] HWPL & 918 WARP Summit, Resolution of Peace!


HWPL & 918 WARP Summit, Resolution of Peace!

Greetings to you all! :) It’s been a long time since I last wrote for my precious visitors.

This is my first meeting with you after a long period of silence, so I wanted to introduce HWPL and the 918 WARP Summit for you guys again. 

(I understand some visitors already know much about HWPL and maybe the 918 WARP Summit, but please kindly bear with me as there are, on the other hand, some people who don't know:D)

Then, what is HWPL?
- Its full name is 'Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light' and it is a registered NGO (Non-Government Organization) of Seoul and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of The Republic of Korea. HWPL is also a registered NGO of The Department of Public Information of the United Nations

What is the purpose of HWPL?
- The cessation of war and declaration of peace. To pass peace down to future generations

Wow! To make this wonderful thing a reality, what are their initiatives?
1. The enactment of International Peace Law
(I will explain about DPCW later)

2. WARP Office for Alliance of Religions

3. Peace Education for Students (Elementary School to University)
These are the 3 main initiatives of HWPL listed above. I will tell you more details of each, but let's focus on HWPL and the 918 WARP Summit for today:)

As with every great period of history, HWPL has also achieved its own milestone. That was 918 WARP Summit on the 18th of September 2014.

From the above pictures, more than 2000 politicians, legal professionals, religious leaders, leaders of women & youth groups and 200,000 HWPL members from 170 countries participated in the 918 WARP Summit in 2014.

All politicians, legal professionals, religious leaders, women & young leaders signed the peace MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) to support the 'Enactment of DPCW' and 'Alliance of Religions'. What happened after this successful event?

- HWPL declared the DPCW (Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War) in 2016: 10 articles and 38 clauses
- PALACEN (Parlamento Centroamericano, Parliament of Central America) adopted the DPCW in July 2017
- Today in 2018, the global National Declaration process is well underway to being introduced to the UN General Assembly. 2 countries have already declared the DPCW as their national declaration.

Believe me, I can talk all night about HWPL's work and the 10 articles and 38 clauses of the DPCW, but...I think I will save them for later posts XD

Don't worry, I’ll be coming back soon to write for you:) See you later!

p.s. This a promotional video of the 4th anniversary of the 918 WARP Summit:) Enjoy!
