[HWPL] IPYG's International Youth Peace Conference during HWPL World Peace Summit



[HWPL] IPYG's International Youth Peace Conference during HWPL World Peace Summit

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 IPYG (International Peach Youth Group under HWPL) conference during HWPL World Peace Summit.

2023 International Youth Peace Conference

Amidst the 9th Anniversary of the September 18th HWPL World Peace Summit held in Incheon, South Korea, the annual conference attended by the young leaders around the world, known as the “2023 International Youth Peace Conference,” was hosted by the International Youth Peace Group (IPYG) on the afternoon of September 18th. The IPYG, which began with a commitment to protect young people from conflicts and leave peace as a legacy for the global community, currently collaborates with over 1,000 organizations from 119 countries worldwide.

This year’s Youth Peace Conference, commemorating the 9th anniversary of the World Peace Summit, was conducted under the theme of “Discussion on Running Youth Engagement & Peacebuilding Working Group (YEPW) Globally.” During the conference, Working Group initiatives were shared, and annual action plans were formulated. Historically, just as youth have been pioneers in achieving progress, this conference is also seen as a starting point towards a peaceful future and a time when young people from all around the world come together as one.

On this day, Mr. Noah Amrono, the Secretary General of the United Nations Youth Association of Kenya, delivered a presentation on the theme of “Educational Approach to Fostering Collaborative Peacebuilding.” He has been serving as the Secretary General and representative of the United Nations Youth Association of Kenya since 2016, tirelessly working with passion to promote the growth and development of Kenya’s future generations.

Next, Professor Joao Antonio Soares from the University of Peace in Timor-Leste presented on the topic of “Fostering Social Cohesion Through Public Art Projects.” Professor Soares has been serving as a professor of International Relation Theory at the University of Peace in Timor-Leste since 2010, educating numerous students about the importance and value of peace.

Following that, Mr. Rajan Panthi, the President of We Can Group in Nepal, presented on the topic of “Implementation of Extensive Peace Clubs for Sustainable Development.” As a HWPL Publicity Ambassador, President Panthi has been leading We Can Group in Nepal since 2015. He has been working tirelessly to strengthen the capacity of young people and protect the vulnerable.

Furthermore, in place of Ms. Enkhbayar Zorigtbaatar, the Executive Director of the Mongolian Youth Council, the Project Director of IPYG Mongolia Branch, Ms. Khulan, delivered a presentation on the topic of “Empowering Generations to Preserve Natural Heritage.”
