PeaceEducation & MOU with various countries during the WorldPeaceSummit in Korea
The world’s passion for peace is heating up due to the popularity of HWPL’s peace education. At the ‘Peace Education Development Forum for Global Advancement’ that was held during the 4th Annual Commemoration of the September 18th World Peace Summit, HWPL signed an MOU with the Ministries of Education of Sri Lanka, Colombia, Guatemala and Iraq. This clearly demonstrates the rapid spread of the culture of peace as stated in Article 10 of the DPCW.
The DPCW will be recognized as the true answer to peace and will be passed as a legally binding instrument. It tells us to achieve a world of peace is no longer a dream and to sign of the peace MOU with HWPL now is necessary.
We should think of how we can achieve peace. It should start by teaching peace to the youths – Chairman Lee
