The 3rd Annual Commemoration
of the WARP Summit
The 3rd Annual Commemoration of the WARP Summit was held under the theme, “Establishing Collaborative Governance for Development and Implementation of the DPCW.” The Summit aimed to increase awareness of the DPCW among intergovernmental organizations including the United Nations. Furthermore, the agreed upon standards for determining a trustworthy religious scripture, which is the key component of the comparative study of scriptures done at the WARP Offices, were presented and ideas for a global peace media network were developed. Overall, the Summit provided an opportunity to seek ways to establish a cooperative network among international organizations, governments, and civil societies.

DPCW 10 Articles and 38 Clauses Parade
HWPL DPCW‘s 10 Articles and 38 Clauses Parade, which consists of the key principles stated in the DPCW, expresses how the world of peace has come. Despite the long history of humanity, a perfect peace hasn’t yet to come. When tens of thousand people come together with a common goal, that goal begins to achieve. And I believe what is happening here is in this place. There are many parades! I introduce one of them.
Article 10 Spreading a culture of peace
The students who received peace education from HWPL are creating this place into a world of peace as “messengers of peace”. The HWPL Peace Academy teaches Peace of Mind based on dignity of Life. It is the best education that every human being is more valuable than the whole universe, isn’t it? How great DPCW Parade is!

Parade Art Production Team Leader
“In the case of the tank, a key point to take notice of is how the cold and lethal weapons of death are transformed into agricultural tools that help people and give them joy. So, it becomes a world where there are no longer any weapons that kill people. In the case of the unification train, it shows how the unification of Korea, which is the world’s only divided nation, is able to give hope.
This is symbolized by the creation of a unification train which would allow people to go anywhere, not caring whether it is in South or North.”
Arirang Performance performer
“Our performance is a concert called Arirang Fantasy of Peace. It is a performance that expresses the idea of a peace that does not discriminate anyone, even though nationality, race, culture and religion may all be different. It brings together a traditional Korean song with traditional instruments, dances martial arts and other elements showing a harmonized global village full of excitement. This concert is a peace festival that represents the global village that will live in harmony and create peace.
It is during the performance of Ganggangsullae(강강술래), a traditional Korean dance, in the Arirang of Peace where one of our team members steps across the connected backs and shoulders of the others. This clearly demonstrates how a beautiful reality of peace is achieved through the combined sacrifice and effort of everyone involved.
Therefore, during practices not even one person could think selfishly, but instead had to willingly lend their back and shoulders. So, we carefully practiced with the mindset that I myself must hold hands and create peace along with everyone else.”
