5th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace
Resolving Conflicts and Spreading a Culture of Peace through the DPCW: Realizing Peace on the Korean Peninsula

TOGETHER FOR A NEW START,
TOGETHER FOR PEACE

The 2018 5th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace is titled Resolving Conflicts and Spreading a Culture of Peace through the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).  In working for the common goal of peace, the Declaration of World Peace urged for shared efforts of all members of society, calling for individuals to work as peace messengers. It presented a goal of devising a legal measure recognized in the international community for peace and cessation of war and highlighted the leading role of the youth as future leaders of society. The Declaration was later further developed into more concrete codes of the 10 articles and 38 clauses in the DPCW

Recent developments including the widening channels of discussion with neighboring countries, the hosting of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, and the reignition of inter-Korean interaction in the private sector are changes that heighten expectations for governments and nongovernmental organizations alike. With such current developments in mind, this 25 May, HWPL plans a peace campaign with a slogan: Together for A New Start, Together for Peace. The citizen-oriented peace campaign will focus on free travel, exchange and interaction between the two Koreas, and will bring progress in terms of World Peace and Restoration of Light as the NGO's name.
