T. Walsh: Remarks at World Summit 2014

Remarks at World Summit 2014, Seoul, Korea, August 9-13, 2014

UPF's World Summit series provides a context in which the critical issues of peace, security and human development can be addressed comprehensively by high-level government officials -- including current heads of state and government -- together with representatives of civil society, the private sector, and the world's great faith traditions.

Along these lines, significant interest has been express in UPF's proposal, articulated by the address of its founder, Dr. Sun Myung Moon at the UN in 2000, for an interfaith council within the UN system. Current efforts to resolve crises in such places as Gaza, Syria, Ukraine, and East Asia are not proving to be effective, and people are interested in a new paradigm for conflict prevention and peacebuilding.

UPF and the World Summit series are increasingly recognized as initiatives that are providing credible and innovative approaches to peace in the 21st century.
