Global Peace Corps Proclamation
Manila, Philippines | December 13, 2023
Whereas, the world is continually confronted by a myriad of global crises, including wars and atrocities causing millions to suffer, along with environmental challenges and impacts on the human family across the world, including violations of fundamental human rights and freedoms; and
Whereas, these circumstances are exacerbating fragmentation and divisions within societies and undermining mutual respect and understanding among different cultures and nations; and
Whereas, effectively addressing such challenges requires collaborative action guided by a comprehensive vision and grounded in universal principles and shared values and a spirit of service to others; and
Affirming, that all people have intrinsic value, dignity, and fundamental rights as endowed by the Creator, and that beyond all differences of race, ethnicity or religion we are all essentially connected as one family under God; and
Whereas, the Global Peace Corps aims to engage and train young leaders committed to such high ideals, galvanizing a new generation of moral and innovative peacebuilders who together solve critical problems and ignite a new flame of hope for global cooperation and peace, and
Whereas, the Global Peace Corps is a vitally-needed initiative that will empower young leaders through peacebuilding skills, character education and service opportunities, offering significant leadership credentials and a lifelong sense of fulfillment together with enduring cross-cultural relationships, in collaboration with civil society partners, universities, nations, and international bodies;
Therefore, at this historic Global Peace Convention gathering on December 13, 2023, in Manila, Philippines, joined together in support of young leaders with high aspirations and unwavering determination to become transformative peacebuilders, we hereby proclaim the establishment and launch of the Global Peace Corps. May it serve as a beacon of hope and a powerful force for good that strives to the highest standard of living in service to others, guided by the vision of One Family Under God.
