How to achieve global peace- HWPL

By Akeem Abas
Ibadan –  Man Hee Lee, the Chairman of Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL), says global peace could be achieved through comprehensive application of peace education.

HWPL Press and Media Liaison, Jackie Kim, said in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan on Wednesday that Lee and other prominent global leaders said this at a World Alliance of Religions’ Peace meeting with education specialists as part of their action plan to develop peace education.

Lee said that HWPL had established peace academies in 127 education institutions in nine countries, including India, Israel, Kosovo, and the Philippines.

The HWPL Chairman, who said that the world needed peace education to attain global peace, added that this must start from the family.

“We need peace education specifically for today. We ourselves should be the reality of peace education. Without the spirit of peace in me, how can I possibly educate peace to students?

“To do this, peace education must start from family so that the family becomes peaceful and preach such,” he said.

Hon. Maria Eugenia Barrios Robles de Mejía, Vice Minister, Ministry of Education, Guatemala, emphasised the need for all citizens worldwide to be more tolerant of each other.

She stated that dialogue was the way to accept differences and resolve every conflict.

“Education has a lot of role to play in the diffusion of the culture of peace. Our effort is to contribute to the promotion of the culture of peace across the world through peace education,’’ she said.

Prof. Juan Carlos Torres f Don Bosco University said peace education would change and form the values of peace within the hearts of children as a permanent change.

Torres stated that he got a surprising result from his teaching experience of peace education, having applied the focus of HWPL value of conflict resolution with children.

Nancy Roussopoulos, a former Principal of Camps Bay Preparatory School, Cape Town, called for enhancement of communication, network for methodology and evolution of curriculum on peace education for future generations.

She also canvassed awareness on the need for teachers to understand the value of peace with detailed educational contents.

“When we as teachers take up the responsibility to speak to our students, we have to be role models from how we speak, relate and adhere to orders within the society, we are sure of positive results in our students,’’ she said. (NAN)
