Universal Peace Federation-UK receives a certificate for its Partnership with Parliament Week over the last three years from the Speakers of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. This is an appreciation for UPF's support of their aims of political engagement and empowerment. We held an event on the 'Decline of the Political Centre Ground' during Parliament Week 2016 last November. http://ow.ly/5nfD308rMql

The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) is proud to support the United Nations International Day of Peace 2016 dedicated to the theme "The Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace."
At the opening of the 70th Session of the General Assembly, the United Nations Member States came together in September of 2015 to affirm and announce the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), along with 169 targets.
Social media have become a catch-all phrase for a spectrum that runs from word-of-mouth rumour to The New York Times and BBC live blogs. They are fast and can have immediate global repercussions. But how much do they really help or hinder efforts to build peace? Are they more relevant than the introduction of printing, radio, television or the Internet itself into fractious societies? To what extent should the law step in to regulate the messages they bring? Addressing these questions, panellists in this session will assess the impact of social media on peacebuilding.
