2nd Thursday of Every Month
Registration and Refreshments 6 pm
Event 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
We would like to invite you to an inspiring evening introducing the Universal Peace Federation and its activities. We would like to share our approach, our vision, and take this opportunity to network and understand how we can collaborate with others, and/or their groups, in areas for which there is a common interest. As you are new to us too, it would be nice for you to introduce yourself and your work.
UPF is a global alliance of religious, academic, political and civic leaders, and organisations joined together in the belief for peace. UPF works through a global network of Ambassadors for Peace who dedicate themselves promoting universal moral values, strong family life, interreligious cooperation, international harmony, renewal of the United Nations, responsible mass media, and the establishment of a culture of peace worldwide. UPF has a slogan of humanity as one family under a loving God. All people have equal, sacred value irrespective of belief or lack of belief.
