UPF-Denmark Establishes General Assembly



Copenhagen, Denmark—To develop and expand UPF’s peacebuilding work, 16 Ambassadors for Peace and UPF supporters established a General Assembly.


In the years since the Danish chapter of UPF was established by UPF founders Rev Dr. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon on November 19, 2005, a group of dedicated supporters and Ambassadors for Peace have carried out grass-roots activities.

In the founding meeting held in the UPF Peace Center on June 15, 2023, the chapter leaders and Ambassadors for Peace resolved that it is time to have more structure and organization in order to find new ways of developing and expanding UPF’s peacebuilding efforts.


The General Assembly elected Zoraiz Khushdil, a state-authorized accountant and Ambassador for Peace, as director.

In his welcoming remarks, UPF-Denmark Secretary General Karsten Nielsen said: “Peace requires unity. Unity can be reached when there is love.


“However, we see two kinds of love in our world. Absolute love, which always exists for the benefit of others, serves the whole and is unchanging.

“The other kind, relative love, is self-centered and changes according to interests of the moment. We need absolute love originating from God, our Heavenly Parent.”

The director presented the draft for the statutes, which were discussed and unanimously approved.

A seven-member board, including four Ambassadors for Peace, was elected.


The Ambassadors for Peace expressed wishes for UPF to become more visible in the society. Many suggestions were offered about how to develop and expand UPF in Denmark. Everyone was excited to make their shared dreams of peace a reality.
