HWPL Peace Education Workshop
“Now, we need to work together for the world of peace in order to bring an end to war and armed conflicts and leave the full legacy of peace to our future generations.” – HWPL Chairman Man Hee Lee
In May 2018, a group of 11 professors and faculty members of national universities in Indonesia visited the Republic of Korea to learn about HWPL Peace education. Just three months prior to their visit, there are many amazing things. Many universities in Indonesia including Universitas Islam Negeri Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta are signing a Peace Academy MOU with HWPL! The reason why they discuss at this workshop is to integrate HWPL’s Peace Education into their curricula for the coming fall semester.
▲ Who is responsible to bring peace?
▲ What’s the key ingredient to make this world one of peace?
▲ All humanity needs to be born again with the culture of peace.
Divided nation working for Reunification
Many people asked about HWPL’s peace movement in the world’s one divided nation, Korea. It is not understood by their common sense. How is this possible? One professor said “It is amazing to see a divided nation doing this work of peace. HWPL’s peace work takes great significance in the run for ending the war on the Korean Peninsula and for its reunification. By taking Mr. Lee’s purpose and his vision for peace and applying it to individuals, the environment, and governments, I am confident that it is possible to achieve peace solely by the hands of the people without any intervention from the government level or the religious leaders.”
The peace values presented by HWPL are necessary for realizing reunification led by the people.
Messengers of Love and Peace
Each of the participants is so smart and influential. As a peace educator, they love Indonesia and study ‘ How can I deliver one better? ‘ One professor said “the workshop served as an opportunity to take one step further in thinking about what peace really is. I want to share the value of peace presented by HWPL when I return to Indonesia.” Another professor said “What I recognized from learning about HWPL peace education curriculum is that we need to clearly spread the value of peace.” The other said “When I return home, I hope to become a peace messenger, share the ideas of HWPL Peace Education with others, and contribute to resolving political discourse in Indonesia.”
“Peace is necessary because it is directly related to people’s daily lives.“
