HWPL boosts global peace education program with partner groups

Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL), an international peace organization, was founded for global peace and cessation of war.

The HWPL is a non-governmental organization in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations (UN) Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and associated with the UN Department of Global Communications (DGC) and the Seoul Metropolitan Government.

With the mission to achieve global peace through the heavenly culture and restore the world with light, HWPL is carrying out its peace movement around the globe, working with its partner, the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG), and its affiliate organization, the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG).

Moreover, leaders of different countries are cooperating as the HWPL Peace Advisory Council, and experts from all walks of life are active as HWPL Publicity Ambassadors.

HWPL’s peace movement will leave for future generations the greatest legacy—life instead of death and permanent peace instead of endless wars.

To bring up future peace leaders, HWPL’s Peace Education Process provides sets of textbooks on peace and in-class activities such as learning sections, presentations, and discussions that allow students to systematically develop values of peace.

In addition, the peace educator training program and its guidelines are provided to schools and educational institutions so that teachers who completed it can teach it in schools and local communities.

HWPL’s Peace Education provides two tracks: student learning and teacher training. So far, 214 educational institutes have partnered with HWPL for Peace Education, and it is being conducted in 53 schools.

Notably, peace education in the Philippines, India, and Romania is showing great progress. At Jagadguru Narendracharyaji Maharaj Educational Institute (JNMEI), a school in India, students attend a peace education session titled “The Power to Overcome Coronavirus: Gratefulness.” And students in Romania are celebrating completing all 12 chapters of the Peace Education course.

From Mindanao to Ilocos, the wind of peace sweeps across the Philippines

On July 19, Cotabato City in Mindanao held an unveiling ceremony of the HWPL Peace Monument – the third of its kind in the city.

This peace monument – a form of piled rocks and stones – was made by local citizens who brought rocks from all across Mindanao Island. It is a symbol of solidarity free of division or discrimination and people’s hearts and minds brought together for peace.

In Barangay Foz in the Ilocos Norte region, a municipality in the northern Philippines, students took HWPL Peace Education courses for the past year. Influencing their parents and the community with peaceful inspirations, the students brought positive change to the local community.

Now, Barangay Foz of Ilocos Norte has been transformed into a community of peace, and students and citizens are donating and volunteering to build a garden of peace. (PR)
