She spoke about the purpose of the Peace Road, as well as recognized the organizations that supported the event: Universidad de la Marina Mercante (UdeMM); Asociación Respuesta para la Paz (ARP);the environmental literacy program,“Y volverán a ser árboles,” from Pehuajó in Buenos Aires province;  Asociación Sanmartiniana del Partido de General San Martín; Casa Universitaria; and the Fine Arts Museum.

(*) PEACE ROAD

The Peace Road is a project that seeks to bring all nations together. In 1981, the idea of a “World Peace Highway” was proposed at the 10th International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences (ICUS) in Seoul, Korea by UPF Founder Rev. Sun Myung Moon. He emphasized the need for creating a highway that would connect Korea and Japan, two former enemy nations, together. During the world tour inaugurating the UPF in 2005, Rev. Moon called for the construction of a “World Peace King Bridge Tunnel” across the Bering Strait as a way of uniting east and west, north and south, the U.S.A. and Russia. This international highway would allow all people to travel on land from Africa’s Cape of Good Hope to Santiago, Chile, and from London to New York, connecting the world as a single community.

The Peace Road initiative, which seeks to “connect the world through peace” and “realize the dream of one global family,” also supports the peaceful reunification of the two Korea’s, as well as promotes the building of a world peace park in the demilitarized zone that divides the Korean peninsula and the creation of a 5th UN headquarters in Korea.

The Peace Road can contribute to creating more possibilities for meeting and understanding between people, and more opportunities for development and sustainable progress. In short, the Peace Road is the convergence of the efforts of individuals and organizations who seek to overcome national, cultural, religious and racial boundaries, supporting the ideal of a great and one global family that recognizes the same Creator.
