21st to 23rd September, 2021
Are you a young leader or peace activist in Africa?
Do you want to join an international organization advocating for world peace?
African young people need your contribution in understanding the real actions to be taken to help Africa and the world in creating sustainable world peace through inner peace. For this reason, WORLD PEACE INITIATIVE FOUNDATION (WPI) is organizing the 3rd edition of the “3-Day Online Seminar for Africa” from the 21st to 23rd September 2021. This is our special way to celebrate International Day of Peace, generate positive impact and create better people for better African societies using Peace and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We invite you to join us in this new initiative as active contributors and stakeholders in peacebuilding projects and programs in Africa.
Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
The United Nations’ 16th Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) is about the creation of Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions. It mainly aims at promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing access to justice for all and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. Peace and justice are, therefore, prerequisites for strong institutions and sustainable societies. But we can not achieve Peace and Justice without every individuals’ contribution. And that’s why Inner Peace is a key in making global Peace a reality. To have well-structured societies, where people can create their own Peace while helping the community, we need more than just the technical principles because, even today, we still have more to do in order to create peaceful communities. And that’s what justifies the need to include Inner Peace in our strategy to establish everlasting Peace for everybody.
According to the United Nation report entitled “The Sustainable Development Goals Report 2020”, before COVID-19, every day 100 civilians are killed in armed conflicts despite protections under international law. COVID-19 implications further threaten global peace and security. Already in 2019, the number of people feeling war, persecution and conflict exceeded 79.5 million, the highest level ever recorded. These numbers indicate the current reality of global peace in the world and how difficult this time is for people and societies. So, we have to explore new ways to create individual peace for sustainable world peace.
Using Inner Peace to Achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
As the Constitution of UNESCO declares, “Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed”. Many social problems arise from the lack of right judgement, empathy, and patience which derives from misunderstanding. Before conflicts can be physical, they are first subtitles and could not be easily perceived. When we fail in having clarity in the mind, we can not avoid problems or conflicts. That’s the reason why at the World Peace Initiative Foundation (WPI), we aim to purify the mind so that thoughts, speech, and actions are ethically constructed. Though we have transformed the lives of many hundreds of leaders in over 160 countries, we still continue to drive forward and look for possibilities to help more people: hence the 3-Day Seminar for Africa which will be organised for the 3rd time for Africans leaders, young people, NGOs, peace activists, local, national and regional authorities.
