Throughout history, war and conflict have brought tragedy and needless suffering to millions of innocent people. Conflict is often rooted in a view that religion, ideology or ethnicity signifies a fundamental identity, engendering division between those that belong and those that do not. The world’s cultures and faith traditions express aspirations for peace and affirm the fundamental cohesion of the human family. A global movement for sustainable peace must elevate these universal principles and values as the basis of shared human identity and common destiny.
GPF’s annual Global Peace Convention is a preeminent, world-level platform to share best practices and develop collaborative strategies in areas of education, health care, environmental sustainability, community-driven development, and conflict resolution, guided by a vision of One Family under God. Dr. Hyun Jin Moon is the founder and chairman of the Global Peace Foundation.
