of Ambassadors for Peace.

The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) is a global alliance of religious, academic, political and civic leaders, and organisations joined together to promote peace in which all people live together in harmony, cooperation and co-prosperity. UPF is guided by a vision of humanity as one global family under God, called to live in accordance with core, universal principles. All people are believed to have equal value and are loved by God whether or not they believe in God themselves.


UPF works with a global network of Ambassadors for Peace who are individuals whose lives exemplify the ideal of living for the sake of others, and who dedicate themselves to promoting universal moral values, strong family life, inter-religious cooperation, international harmony, renewal of the United Nations, responsible mass media, and the establishment of a global culture of peace.
