The youth of today are architects of peace but they are paying a high price for their desire for a better, more fair and just world. To a standing room only Ballroom in Universal Peace Federation HQ, Lord Jack McConnell addressed the issue of peaceful, youthful idealism and the injustices in the world. These clashed once more resulting in the tragic murder of Tawfik Bensaud, the eighteen year old Libyan activist, in Bengazi last month.
Japan Europe Leadership Forum
UPF-Japan conducted the fourth Japan-Europe Forum in February, inviting Lord Nazir Ahmed, one of the earliest Muslim members appointed to the Britain’s House of Lords, who has been involved in eliminating discrimination and discrepancies attributed to race, religion or gender.
The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) has two key themes. The first is the promotion of altruism. UPF uses the slogan, ‘Living for the sake of others’. This conference has dealt with a lot about branding. The ultimate branding is to be respected and trusted as someone who has integrity, a company that is law abiding and is a valuable stakeholder in the community or nation or a nation that is respected for its contribution to solving the problems of other less fortunate nations or to resolving world problems.
