World Culture and Sports Festival Held in New York

New York, USA -- From January 25 to 28, at the New York Sheraton and Manhattan Center, World Carp held a World Culture and Sports Festival. World Carp's mission is to encourage conscientious young people to live for the sake of others, by bridging the generations, and transcending the boundaries between races, nationalities and religions.

Conference sessions included presenters from a variety of backgrounds: Robin Graham, the Program Director of Global Team Together, gave a presentation on the strategic management of public service. Masashi Sano, treasurer and controller of two companies under United Vision Group, Inc., gave a beginners' introduction to financial concepts and their applications for non-profit organizations. Michael Inglis, a designer and publisher, spoke on how to find motivation to complete important tasks. Don Sardella, founder of the Institute for Leadership Development spoke on the application of leadership skills to everyday tasks. Russ Allen, CEO of Empowered Media, gave a presentation on the use of media in public relations, promotion, education and recruitment. Robbert Kittel, president of the Pure Love Alliance, gave a talk on the shortfalls of modern sex education and the need to teach abstinence. Tony Devine, vice-president of the International Educational Foundation, rounded out the presentations with a discussion on universal moral values.

Another highlight of the festival was a Lasting Love Conference, exploring the dream of a lasting world peace through the creation of healthy, God-centered families. The presentation connected the teachings of the IIFWP founders with those of other contemporary spiritual leaders, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi and the former UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskoljd.

Finally, the Mister and Miss University beauty pageant was held. Unlike a typical beauty pageant, which focuses solely on physical attractiveness, this pageant encourages the pursuit of beauty based on a broad range of features, including intellectual acumen, international awareness, communication, service to others, morality and ethics.

The festival was a resounding success, drawing students from all over the United States as well as many other countries.
