[HWPL] Main Initiatives of HWPL Peace Education 2



[HWPL] Main Initiatives of HWPL Peace Education 2

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 :)

2. Training Peace Educators

Education should not just end in terms of delivering knowledge, but should continue to examine, teach, and help students until they make their own everything they have learned. For this, HWPL appoints local teachers and professors as peace educators and provide training to them regularly.

3. Peace Education Webinar

The Peace Education Webinar, which anyone interested in peace education can participate in, is a platform to share the current status of peace education and various ideas of peace educators around the world. Through various webinars conducted in different countries or even continents, they share news about peace education as well as various educational methods.

4. Peace Education Campaign

To overcome the public education crisis, educational inequality, and problem of student alienation caused by pandemic, HWPL is conducting the #TeachingGoesOn campaign with teachers all over the world. Through the campaign, they sympathize that the driving force behind the global education crisis lies with teachers who are the backbone of education, deliver consolation and love to teachers around the world, and discuss various ways to support teachers to overcome the crisis without losing courage. Even though schools are closed and have changed to online classes, teachers and students are getting closer by expressing love and trust to each other in various ways.
