HWPL WARP Offices endorsing the UN World Interfaith Harmony Week



“Recognizing the imperative need for dialogue among different faiths and religions to enhance mutual understanding, harmony and cooperation among people”


- Excerpt from UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/65/5
World Interfaith Harmony Week was proclaimed by the General Assembly in Resolution A/RES/65/5, which was adopted on October 20, 2010. This first week of February every year is designed to enhance interreligious dialogue to create a culture of peace and seek technical and cooperative solutions transcending the boundaries of religions.

HWPL, since its foundation in 2013, has been pursuing practical methods that will lead to the establishment of sustainable peace; such as, the initiatives for the implementation of an international law for the cessation of war and interfaith harmony and unity. At the WARP Summit in 2014, leaders and professionals of various levels and fields of society committed to work together for these initiatives.

HWPL shares the mutual goal with the UN to promote harmony between all people regardless of their religion. As Resolution A/RES/65/5 states: “Recognizing the imperative need for dialogue among different faiths and religions to enhance mutual understanding, harmony and cooperation among people” is a major element in creating a culture of peace. HWPL’s WARP Offices, the worldwide peace dialogue series in interfaith relations and scriptural texts, are a clear example of how HWPL stands by the UN in taking concrete actions for realizing peace.

The latest WARP Office meeting was held in Makassar, Indonesia. Under the topics of “Good and Evil spoken of in Scriptures” and “What can be the result if a scripture doesn’t identify the methods to solve evil,” leaders from various faiths had a fruitful discussion at the 12th Indonesia WARP Office.

Ever since its launch, the Legislate Peace Campaign has called on global leaders and citizens to voice their positive demand for the implementation of a law based upon the principles of the DPCW. As the campaign to receive the signatures of support through advocacy meetings continues to positively influence and empower the younger generations, we are getting one step closer to developing the DPCW into a legally binding document with peace as the core principle of international relations.
