The Heavenly Culture, World Peace and Restoration of Light (HWPL) 7th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW), an event to redefine the answer to an era of peace, took place on March 14, 2023, at The K Hotel Seoul in South Korea.
This was an event co-organized by HWPL, Chairman Man Hee Lee, the International Women’s Peace Group IWPG, Chairwoman Hyun Sook Yoon, and the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG).
The organizers invited people all around the world to discuss ways to institutionalize peace under the theme of “Institutional Peace: Strengthening Communication to Build Trust.”
In her speech, Chairwoman Hyun Sook Yoon said, “IWPG has been working with women for the past 10 years to achieve the cessation of war and realization of world peace. All of this was possible because we had the DPCW, the sure and clear answer to realizing peace.”
She also added that she visited New York recently to participate in the 67th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) hosted by the UN headquarters.
“There were very special results. A side event was held jointly with two African countries. IWPG’s peace education was introduced and the DPCW, which is what the peace education is based upon, was spoken of and actively promoted,” Sook added.
In addition, she said participants from countries where there is ongoing war requested cooperation with IWPG and supported the DPCW, saying that “they would like to participate in peace activities”.
Chairwoman Yoon went on to urge the international community to “create a world united by freedom, equality, love, and peace, rather than a world groaning from war, conflict, discrimination, and violence” and “to all become messengers of peace and do our utmost to legalize the DPCW.”
Ever since the proclamation of the DPCW on March 14, 2016, HWPL has been working to legislate peace to prevent, mediate, and resolve war and conflicts around the world.
