UK Ambassadors for Peace Discuss UPF Principles


London, United Kingdom—Ambassadors for Peace and other UPF supporters were invited to a seminar that explained the founders’ vision for peace.


The half-day seminar was held on July 8, 2023, in the UPF-UK offices in the Lancaster Gate area of London.


Rev. Dr. David Hanna, the UPF chairman for Northern Europe, delivered three enlightening presentations that explored the profound universal values underpinning the Universal Peace Federation:

  • “Universal Values as a Foundation for Peace”;

  • “Love Lies at the Root of Conflict”; and

  • “Healing and Reconciliation: Toward the Ideal.”


“Heart is the impulse to experience joy through giving and receiving love," Dr. Hanna said. He addressed fundamental aspects of human existence, surprising the audience with his thought-provoking insights on a Saturday morning.


By delving into these core principles, Dr. Hanna shed light on the intrinsic connection between love, conflict, and the path to healing and reconciliation.


As part of the program, Ambassador for Peace awards were bestowed upon five individuals who have made exceptional contributions to peacebuilding:

  • Keya Prasad, staff ambassador for the Hematology Cancer Care charity at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust;

  • Nic Careem, the founder and director of Blue Sky Network;

  • Imambay Kamara, founder and CEO of the Disabled International Foundation;

  • Aremuorin (Anthony Everest), an award-winning Anglo-Nigerian singer, songwriter, musician, and author;

  • Christopher George, an entrepreneur and businessman who currently is helping to establish character education curricula in African schools.
