World educators gather in South Korea for peace education
“Peace Education Development Forum for Spreading a Culture of Peace” is held in Seoul, Republic of Korea on September 17th
Under the current global environment shaded by long-term violence around the world including terrorism and interethnic conflicts, the international society is seeking a conflict resolution through a long-term approach to peacebuilding – education.
Beginning in 2014 with peace initiatives on global cooperation in international law for peace and religious harmony, the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit has been hosted annually by HWPL to advocate participation of people from all levels of society in peacebuilding.
Among its projects, followed by the high-level meeting with education specialists in 2016, detailed action plans in peace education for students and citizens will be introduced this year.
“Peace Education Development Forum for Spreading a Culture of Peace” will be held by Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL), an international NGO under the United Nations Department of Public Information (UN DPI) on September 17th in Seoul, Republic of Korea.
