[HWPL] HWPL's Peace Educators 2024 Gathering



[HWPL] HWPL's Peace Educators 2024 Gathering

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 regarding HWPL's Peace Education :)

HWPL Peace Educator's 2024 Gathering

On February 17th, the “2024 HWPL Peace Educators New Year’s Gathering” was held, organized by the HWPL HQ Peace Education Department. A total of 303 HWPL peace educators from 55 countries attended this event.

HWPL is dedicated to training educators worldwide as peace educators, appointing those who have received peace education training as peace educators, and actively implementing HWPL peace education. Currently, 1,704 educators from 65 countries are actively working as peace educators.

The New Year’s Gathering was an opportunity for peace educators from around the world to share their experiences in peace education and address the challenges they have faced. Through discussions and exchanges, educators once again reaffirmed their commitment to diligently fulfill the mission of spreading a culture of peace through the Peace Educator’s Pledge Ceremony, solidifying their sense of duty.

The participating educators pledged to take the lead in promoting a culture of peace in 2024 and committed to developing specific plans for peace education activities. Additionally, HWPL awarded the Peace Educator Certificate as a token of gratitude to 50 educators dedicated to peace education.

Otgonbayar Oidov, the Director of the Lifelong Education Center in the Orkhon province of Mongolia, expressed his desire to move forward with peace education and said, “After seeing it being actively promoted in other countries, I felt a desire to spread peace education in the area for which I am responsible.”

Marija Janković, an ESL English teacher at Hugo Badalić Elementary School in Croatia, expressed her astonishment, saying, “It is wonderful to hear the experiences of other teachers or representatives from different countries and discover how similar we truly are, and how much we all desire the same thing—peace. All these testimonies only confirm to me that we have a very important role, which is to educate the young generation about peace and promote peace. My current role as a peace educator is to promote peace, live in peace, and teach young people the importance of peace.”

HWPL will continue to vigorously conduct peace educator trainings in 2024, targeting educators worldwide, and devote its efforts to spreading a culture of peace through peace education.
