Universal Peace Federation (UPF) Holds Global Seminar on the Theme “Opportunity and Hope at a Time of Global Crisis: Interdependence, Mutual Prosperity, and Universal Values.”
In an attempt to spread hope and optimism during the coronavirus pandemic which has infected more than 27 million people and killed over 189,000 globally, UPF, an NGO in general consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations will convene its first virtual International Leadership Conference (ILC) on Sept. 11-13, 2020.

The ILC will host concurrent webinars in three, time-zone friendly clusters: the Americas, Asia Pacific, and the combined continents of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
“This year has seen dramatic disruptions, not only due to the COVID-19 pandemic but in geopolitics, the world economy, the media, religion and all levels of society,” said Universal Peace Federation Chairman Dr. Thomas G. Walsh.
“When the world’s leaders and citizens gather and listen to each other,” he added, “it’s easy to envision how our friendships can grow, and how we can live as one global family.”
Former Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki-moon said at the recent virtual summit “Rally of Hope”, Aug. 9, 2020, he believed that “UPF will become a cornerstone to build lasting peace around the world.”
In addition to addressing major issues of the day, the conference will commemorate the 15-year anniversary of the Universal Peace Federation and the centenary of UPF’s Co-Founder, Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon (1920-2012).
Featured speakers in the Europe, Africa and Middle-East Peace-Dialogue will include former heads of state such as Goodluck Jonathan from Nigeria or H.E Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca from Malta, or Dr. Werner Fasslabend, former minister of defense, Austria, religious leaders with a large following such as Prophet Radebe from South Africa or Cheikh Soufi Bilal Diallo from Mali, and business leaders such as the philanthropist Joseph Busha from Zimbabwe.
The September 11-13 program will highlight the work of UPF’s seven Associations: International Summit Council for Peace (ISCP), International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace (IAPP), Interreligious Association for Peace and Development (IAPD), International Media Association for Peace (IMAP), International Association of Academicians for Peace (IAAP), International Association for Peace and Economic Development (IAED) and International Association of First Ladies for Peace (IAFLP).
