[HWPL] HWPL Hosted Peace Education Event in Germany!


[HWPL] HWPL Hosted Peace Education Event in Germany!

Chairman ManHee Lee is the head representative of the global peace organization HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light), which is striving for the enactment and implementation of the international peace law 'Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)'. The  DPCW is a legal instrument comprised of 10 articles and 38 clauses that can end wars and hostilities throughout the world. HWPL is also spreading a culture of peace and implementing peace education.

Chairman ManHee Lee experienced the cruelty and tragedy of war as a veteran of the Korean War. This is one of the reasons why he founded a global peace campaign as the head of HWPL. He has traveled the globe more than 35 times to meet and persuade politicians, legal experts, journalists, professors, peace activists, civil organization leaders, heads of tribes and others to unite them for the work of peace. The significant fruits borne out of his hard work are the World Alliance of Religions' Peace (WARP) Summit and HWPL Peace Committee. The DPCW was drafted and finalised by the HWPL Peace Committee.

How, you may wonder, do I know this? About 10 years ago, when I had just been discharged from military service, I came to know HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee while researching the topic of civil conflicts to satisfy my curiosity in ongoing global issues. At that time, the island of Mindanao in the Philippines was suffering from a major civil conflict that lasted more than 40 years, and Chairman ManHee Lee and HWPL resolved this conflict through non-violent means.

Chairman Lee brought an end to the conflict in Mindanao by holding a peace talk between the warring Catholic and Islamic groups. Before the talk, HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee held a Peace Walk to spread the culture of peace in Mindanao with the many locals who had gathered out of a desire for peace.

Chairman ManHee Lee's pressing appeal today is that humanity unites for sustainable peace in order to pass on the legacy of peace to future generations worldwide. He doesn't just talk peace, but has worked tirelessly for it through practical peace campaigns for over a decade.

I decided to become a supporter of HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee's peace initiatives because I also desire a world of peace for all posterity.

Today I'd like to introduce an article from HWPL official homepage regarding HWPL's Peace Education :)

Peace education implementation possibilities in its diversity



On April 17th, a seminar was held at the Fresenius University Munich, Germany, under the theme of ‘Peace education implementation possibilities in its diversity’.

This seminar, which started with Dr. Gertrud Müller, a lecturer at Fresenius University Munich, founder of tools4life, was organized to share HWPL’s peace activities and was attended by 11 Fresenius University students. The seminar consisted of an introduction to HWPL peace projects, especially peace education textbooks, and a presentation on how students can practice peace.

It was time for students to break the prejudice that peace is impossible and difficult to realize, but instead to gain confidence in how to participate in peace activities and achieve peace after hearing specific measures to realize world peace.

Students expressed, “I think it is very impressive that you do this work voluntarily. It really shows that you are really behind it and want to make a difference.”, “It’s so fascinating how much you can learn from nature (symbiotic relationships, balance, etc.)”, “It was so great that you were here again. You did such a great job. This is such an important topic.” etc.

Dr. Gertrud Müller will continue to hold various peace seminars and peace activities with students.
