Turkey has a very diverse culture that is a blend of various elements of the Turkic, Anatolian, Ottoman and Western culture and traditions. Also, Turkey is not the only country in the world that is famous for its beautiful textiles, but only Turkey has Tulu, an amazing shop with a myriad of exceptionally colorful goods. Turkish culture is a product of efforts to be a “modern” Western state, while maintaining traditional religious and historical values.
The news of peace is also heard in Turkey, which is so beautiful.

The event took place in cooperation with the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG) and HWPL, under the leadership of the Chairman Man Hee Lee. In the event, historical beauties such as Sultanahmet and Hagia Sophia were in the middle of the square. The participants painted the Turkish flag and showed their support for the peace campaign. Turkey was also performed simultaneously with similar events in many places in the world.
Stating the importance of DPCW, the Chairman Man Hee Lee said, “DPCW represents the will of global citizens. Societies want to be at peace and to live together in peace. This declaration advocates that everyone should build peace. The DPCW’s 10 articles and 38 clauses provide the basis for the peace of all world communities.”

The declaration focuses on resolving conflicts in many regions around the world through international cooperation. It is also stated that the implementation of international law is of critical importance for achieving world peace and spreading the culture of peace.
This tweet is mine. I often look for news of peace, of which HWPL stands out and I frequently tweets. Have you ever wondered what is HWPL?
First of all, HWPL is considered the most powerful and practical international NGO. Their short-term achievements are truly remarkable. That’s because HWPL risked his life.
Why? How can? Let’s find out.
What is HWPL?
Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) means to achieve world peace through heavenly culture and restore light. With the purpose of restoring the global community that has been suffering due to wars and conflicts, HWPL wants to go beyond the barriers of culture, religion and beliefs, to respect the core values of peace and life. All individuals, as the messengers of peace, are working together to make a world of SDGs and DPCW.
HWPL, the host of this event, is a peace NGO in Special Consultative Status with the UN ECOSOC and associated with the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the UN DGC. For the purpose of ceasing all wars and creating a peaceful world as a legacy for future generations, HWPL is building a global peace network. This network includes the HWPL International Law Peace Committee made up of international law experts, 192 members of the HWPL Peace Advisory Council made up of political and community leaders, and 556 HWPL Publicity Ambassadors made up of religious leaders and experts in education and media.
Also, HWPL is cooperating with the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) and the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG), which has about 830 youth groups around the world as its affiliates, to lead civil society’s support and participation in building global peace. They are gathering the support of the civil society. 1.8 billion Youth and 3.7 billion Women are the main character.
