Introduction

We are pleased to announce the 3rd World Summit on “Peace, Security and Human Development” to be convened on August 27-31, 2015 in Seoul, Korea. The World Summit is organized and sponsored by the Universal Peace Federation (UPF), an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.

The primary co-sponsor for the World Summit 2015 is the Sunhak Peace Prize Committee. Among the supporting partner organizations are the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, the Washington Times Foundation, the Women’s Federation for World Peace, and the Segye Times.

A highly selective group of delegates from around the world will be in attendance, including current and former heads of state and government, religious leaders, women leaders, civil society leaders and parliamentarians.

There is a growing awareness among people throughout the world of the urgent need for innovative vision and bold leadership if we are to resolve the critical issues of our time. With this in mind, the World Summit will bring together world leaders whose individual and collective experience, wisdom and insight are needed if we are to build a world of peace and prosperity for all the world’s peoples.

In addition to the high-level sessions of the World Summit, delegates will be offered a wide range of opportunities to meet with high-level officials in Korea, representing the government, academia, and the private sector.

On August 28, 2015, all World Summit delegates are invited to attend, as special VIP guests, the Sunhak Peace Prize Award Ceremony, featuring the presentation of a $1,000,000 award to an individual or institution that represents the highest ideals and practices that contribute to a sustainable and lasting peace.


Sincerely,


Dr. Thomas G. Walsh
President, Universal Peace Federation

Dr. Il-Shik Hong
