Momo, also known as The Grey Gentlemen or The Men in Grey, is a fantasy novel by Michael Ende, published in 1973. The main character, Momo, fights with a gray gentleman to regain the time the villagers have taken away. The question is whether we are the same as the villagers who are deprived of time. Our time to stop and see what’s going on and to look back is gone. “PEACE MOMO” was launched in September 2012 to try to regain that time.

PEACE MOMO aims for peace education that anyone doesn’t teach. Everyone is aiming to learn from everyone. The moderator doesn’t present a set answer and doesn’t teach. He or she only takes on the role of facilitator to have participants engage in symbolic activities related to peace, and express what they feel and how they feel about it.

There are no clear answers like the one we are familiar with, which can lead to more questions and inconvenience. However, PEACE MOMO aims to get the participant into a question-ridden state. When there are more questions, we can think twice. That’s where the energy of change comes from.

In Seoul, PEACE MOMO hosts the Youth Peace Education Program, “GYPCI Week: Glocal Youth Peaceful Community Innovator”, every summer for six days starting in 2015. Participants experience a culture that is as free as gypsy and to be different is all right. They focus on making people feel “It’s OK to express their thoughts freely here.”

It is more important than anything to create a safe place to talk without anyone’s notice. Then, the participants cry a lot. I think it’s because the culture of “anything’s okay” is touching our hearts. Even if you’re talking about something that you’ve never told in a group of peers, no one sees it strange. Also, you’re talking about it ‘safely’ and thinking about it together.

“Peace must come from within us”

A peace programme is conducted annually by Space for Children in Education Art and Development (SCEAD) Foundation to commemorate consequences of the Hiroshima Nagasaki bombings. “Despite cultural differences, we need to embrace the idea, and peace must come from the roots within us,” said the Deputy Consul-General of Japan in Bengaluru Katsumasa Maruo. The programme was co-presented by the Japan embassy, IPYG, HWPL and St Joseph’s College of Commerce. Delegates from Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Malaysia, Africa, Scotland and China also shared insights on the unrest in their countries. “Younger generation has been victimised due to wars, and bringing them together in support of their rights will enable future generation to live peacefully.”

HWPL Peace Education’s vision is to enlighten students and cultivate talented individuals with the values and spirit of peace, who can then play a pioneering role in spreading the culture of peace. There are many peace education in the world. But why is the peace education of HWPL the best?

This is because HWPL has DPCW, the answer to peace, which can eliminate war.

As a result, 164 schools in 12 countries have signed MOUs with HWPL.

One professor of India said “I consider that without peace education, the children and youth will not have the tools of cohabitation. It is necessary to have an integral education.”

Another President of College said “Students will be exposed to new concepts of a peaceful society free from evils and corruptions through the contents of the Peace Education Curriculum.”

I’ve been a fan of HWPL. When I heard that the true story book was coming out, I expected a lot and I really wanted to see it. In fact, I looked at it all at once, but I didn’t know the time was passing.

Numerous photos and the names of world leaders have convinced us that peace can be achieved. When I read their words one by one, I think that those who are not with HWPL in this work of peace want war. Short-term achievements will be unrivaled.

This book is not about what has passed, but it is about the present reality and not just a picture book. This book contains the work of peace the seven peace messengers (HWPL, IWPG, IPYG) have done throughout the world.

Youth Day: IPYG and South Africa’s Youth “We Are One!”

1976 Soweto Uprising

The June 16 1976 Uprising that began in Soweto and spread countrywide profoundly changed the socio-political landscape in South Africa. It is estimated that 20,000 black students took part in the protests. Deaths‎ are ‎176 (~700) who are killed by police. So, 16 June is now a public holiday in South Africa, named Youth Day.

What was the reason? Policies of the Apartheid government are the problem. Finally it resulted in the introduction of the Bantu Education Act in 1953. Despite the inequality and oppression caused by apartheid, many heroes were born. Who are they? The “Youth of 1976” played a really important role in fighting.

During the fracas the 12-year-old Hector Pieterson was shot by the police. He was covered in blood. Pieterson was rushed to a local clinic and declared dead on arrival. This photo became an icon of the Soweto uprising.

“The uprising means different things for different people,” says Khwezi Gule, chief curator of the Hector Pieterson museum and memorial in Soweto. “There are different generations and varying constituencies. Even those who were there in 1976 were affected differently: parents, students, leaders, people just caught in the crossfire.”

Nelson Mandela said “The events of that day reverberated in every town and townships of South Africa. The uprising triggered riots and violence across the country. Mass funerals for the victims of state violence became national rallying points.

Suddenly the young people of South Africa were fired with the spirit of protest and rebellion. Students boycotted schools all across the country. Bantu education had come back to haunt its creators, for these angry and audacious young people were its progeny.”

NDP 2030: Youth CAN do it!

The NDP aims to eliminate poverty and reduce inequality by 2030. According to the plan, South Africa can realise these goals by drawing on the energies of its people, growing an inclusive economy, building capabilities, enhancing the capacity of the state, and promoting leadership and partnerships throughout society. Lets all work together to make the National Development Plan (NDP) a success and build a better South Africa for all, it is up to each one of us.

HWPL: French Peace Walk for DPCW

The French Revolution: 1789-1799

France is the first country in the world to have a civil revolution. The French Revolution (1789-1799) is one of the most important events in human history. On August 26, 1789, it introduced the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, proclaiming liberty, equality, the inviolability of property, and the right to resist oppression. It is Influenced by the doctrine of “natural right”; the rights of man are held to be valid at all times and in every place. And this document inspired in large part the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
