United Nations Day Observed by UPF-Georgia

Tbilisi, Georgia - A role play on the theme of “Five Principles of Peace” was held at the office of the Foundation for the Development of Human Resources on October 24 in celebration of the 66th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. About 30 pupils, students, young representatives of NGOs, and Ambassadors for Peace shared about the UN’s history and activities, discussed peacebuilding, and learned about ways to reach compromise solutions. The program was organized by UPF-Georgia with the support of the UN Information Office in Tbilisi.

The participants divided in three groups representing three chambers: politicians, religions leaders, and public figures. They worked to prepare a short message to the citizens of all countries about the principles of peacebuilding, answering five fundamental questions:

  • What idea can unite all people?
  • What is the value of human beings?
  • What is the model of relationships?
  • What is the best educational environment?
  • What are ways to establish peace among nations?

Each question was discussed first by each chamber and then by the whole group, resulting in combined proposals.

The meeting took place in a warm and friendly atmosphere. As a result of discussions between the chambers and within the chambers, the following messages were adopted:

  • Humanity is one family that strives for universal well-being and prosperity.
  • Human beings are children of God who want to live freely and happily in peace and love.
  • The standard of human relationships is love and treating others as we would like them to treat us.
  • The family, based on spiritual and moral values, is the school of love.
  • Peace comes through cooperation between political, religious, and public figures, based on spiritual and moral principles.

At the final part of the event, the results of similar programs held in Yekaterinburg, Russia as well as the Five Peace Principles of the Universal Peace Federation were announced. It is interesting that people of different ages and social backgrounds, at different times and in different circumstances respond to these five questions in similar ways. This provides a basis for sharing the answers with people who are seeking to establish peace and educate youth.
