[HWPL] HWPL Hosted Green Wave of Peace in Mongolia!



[HWPL] HWPL Hosted Green Wave of Peace in Mongolia!

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 Green Wave of Peace.

HWPL Peace Tree Planting & Marker Stone Unveiling Ceremony: Mongolia’s Green Wave of Peace/HWPL

On June 21, HWPL held the “HWPL Peace Tree Planting & Marker Stone Unveiling Ceremony” jointly with Ulaanbaatar National Park & Garden Center to mark the start of Mongolia’s “Green Wave of Peace” tree planting project at Ulaanbaatar National Park in Mongolia.

This event was attended by about forty guests from the government, fields of education and religion, military, and NGOs including Davaadorj Davaanyam, Youth Development Policy Advisor of the Office of the President of Mongolia; Damdinsuren Rinchin, Head of Office of the Deputy Prime Minister of Mongolia; Gombojav Ariunbuyan, Director of the National Emergency Management Agency; Shagdarsuren Tserendulam, Director General of the Climate Change Department of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism of Mongolia; and about 1,000 citizens gathered at the site.

The peace tree planting project began with a keynote speech by Mongolian President Ukhnaagiin Khürelsükh at the 76th UN General Assembly. President Khürelsükh promised to plant one billion trees across Mongolia by 2030 to cope with climate change and prevent desertification, and since then, several cooperative organizations, including the government and related agencies, have been planting trees. While the earth’s abnormal climate and the seriousness of environmental issues continue to emerge as problems in the international community, the “One Billion Trees National Campaign” promoted by the Mongolian government as its main project is drawing attention from many people around the world.



In response, HWPL held the event with Ulaanbaatar National Park & Garden Center which signed an MOU with HWPL to support the Mongolian government’s main project, the One Billion Trees National Campaign, and to promote the spreading a culture of peace and the participation of civil society. In the main order of events, a welcoming speech, a special performance of traditional Mongolian dance by the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG), congratulatory address by distinguished speakers, and awarding the 100,000 Trees Certificate were held.

Davaadorj Davaanyam, Youth Development Policy Advisor of the Office of the President of Mongolia, said, “According to the experience of many countries around the world, environmental protection and restoration issues are not limited to the activities of national administrative agencies, but are successfully realized when citizens, local and regional communities, concerned parties using the natural resources, and academic institutions and circles actively participate. I congratulate the launch of the Green Wave of Peace project in Mongolia by HWPL to support the One Billion Trees National Campaign led by the Mongolian President and plant 100,000 trees within the framework of the above goals.”

Gombojav Ariunbuyan, Director of the National Emergency Management Agency, said, “Desertification is a major problem facing Mongolia today. This is why the Mongolian President started and implemented the One Billion Trees National Campaign, and the participation of the government, non-governmental organizations, and the public in the project has greatly expanded in recent years. In particular, I am very happy that HWPL, which deals with the concepts of peace and friendship, actively participates in solving problems facing Mongolia and brings many people to unite as one to take part in tree planting campaigns for the protection and love of the environment.”

Badrakh Chimed, a biology professor at Eco Asia Environmental University and honored environmental worker, said, “At a time when tree planting is underway nationwide, HWPL’s Green Wave of Peace tree planting project has attracted the attention of many people.” He gained empathy from the participants, saying, “Let’s all join in on this tree planting project and the One Billion Trees National Campaign to grow together and support the green environment.”

Currently, fifty peace trees and 3,700 flowers have been planted in Ulaanbaatar National Park with the support of civil society and the efforts of volunteers. HWPL awarded the Office of the President of Mongolia the “100,000 Trees Certificate” and promised to plant 100,000 trees with civil society in vulnerable areas throughout Mongolia by 2050. Advisor Davaadorj Davaanyam also promised to deliver the certificate to the president.
