Religions' Peace (WARP)
World Alliance of Religions' Peace (WARP) derives from the WARP Summit in 2014 held by HWPL in Seoul, South Korea, with 200,000 participants from 130 countries of the world. As a global interfaith peace movement, the WARP Offices have been established as HWPL's major project for peace through discussion on the role of religion in peace-building for the global community.
The purpose of the WARP Summit is grounded on the Declaration of World Peace. Along with HWPL's peace initiatives based on the respect of human rights and development, including international legal foundation, education opportunities targeted at youth, and women empowerment, the WARP Summit offered religious leaders a chance to cooperate in peace-building for global citizens to enjoy a better world in an era of peace.
Religion is the cradle of human civilizations and religious scriptures represent accumulation of thoughts over the course of history, providing standard of human conduct. At this very juncture when human value is threatened by war and conflict, global citizens are tasked to find the best solution to peace. For this reason, HWPL's WARP Offices discuss the spirit of peace written in religious scriptures to step forward onto the road of world peace. Currently, over 170 WARP offices have been founded around the world to find the best solution to peace through religious scriptures. Considering our responsibility for making peace as a legacy for the future generations, religions as a whole can play a significant role.
