Ambassadors for Peace

Peace Council to Focus on Key National Issues

Français


Approximately 50 Ambassadors for Peace met in
Berlin April 28-29, 2007 to lay the groundwork for a National Peace Council. President of UPF-Germany Karl Meier challenged participants to adopt the motto of “living for the sake of others” as a guideline for not only interpersonal but also international relations.

Participants selected topics for the council’s permanent working committees. Six committees were formed and chairpersons selected:

•     Human Rights and UN Renewal (Karl Meier)

•     Youth and Inner Peace (Elfriede Bradley and Ashin Sopaka)

•     Jewish-Islamic Dialogue (Elke Preusser-Franke and Joerg Wolf)

•     The Family Ideal in a Diverse Society (Gerhard Toelke)

•     Sustainable Agriculture and Renewable Energies (Ahmadudin Wais)

•     Interreligious Dialogue (Mohammed Herzog and Dong-Shin Shin)

The working groups met to set goals, and lively discussion continued into the night.
