Brazil: Inauguration of IAPD Latin America
Prepared by UPF Brazil
The First Peace Ambassadorial Meeting and the IAPD Latin America Founding Convention were held on May 11, 2018, with around 600 participants attending in Hunggan Goncalves, Sao Paulo.
The event was hosted by UPF Brazil and was attended by leaders from organizations active in political, religious and social fields.
The activities of the UPF are being pursued by a global network of peace ambassadors around the world, made up of individuals or groups committed to spreading a culture of peace centered on cosmic values. Interreligious Association for Peace and Development (IAPD) is also a gathering of religious leaders around the world who are working to build a world of lasting peace.
During the event, twenty new peace ambassadors were appointed. Supporting the World Summit Latin America 2018 and Family Festival will be the first big mission for these peace ambassadors.
During the event, one of the speaker said: “From this evening on wards, we must honor the title we receive, and also know the significance of the convention in August when the president of the school is coming”
