In September of 2015, HWPL launched the HWPL International Law Peace Committee, which consists of prominent international law scholars, professors, and chief justices to draft the Declaration to be later developed into a legally binding document. In the following March of 2016, HWPL proclaimed the DPCW along with international law experts from various countries in order to appeal to all nations.

All this continuous effort is being supported by international press, such as the public broadcasts of the Philippines (PTV), “As a reporter, the pushing of the international law is really aggressive step in a request for Peace. It will be the best gift for humanity..”said reporter Elizabeth Kachin.

The HWPL International Law Peace Committee was established and the draft of the international law was proclaimed within a year. Six months later, on March 14, 2016, the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War was proclaimed. The Declaration contains contents such as proposal of answers to religious conflicts and spreading of the culture of peace, and urges for the support of current heads of states.
This declaration will also be sent to Giorgi Margvelashvili, the current president of Georgia.
The HWPL International Law Peace Committee, consisting of twenty highly respected international law experts, is to publicly present the Declaration on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace on March 14, 2016.
Over 1,000 internationally-renowned figures representing various fields: legal affairs, politics, NGOs, and media will gather at the Proclamation Ceremony of the Declaration on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace in Seoul to witness and support the Declaration - the one that will draw a new framework for an international law leading to global peace.
The host organizations of the ceremony, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) together with the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) and the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG), aim to call the global community to stop wars and leave a legacy of world peace for future The Declaration on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace is significantly unparalleled in that its core elements are on the most controversial issues such as prohibition on production, sales, and supply of all weapons; renunciation of possessing war potential; and religious conflict resolution.
The proclamation ceremony will serve not only as a platform to proclaim such a Declaration to the public but also to initiate its development process into an enforceable International Law, bringing forth a world The Proclamation Ceremony of the Declaration on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace will be streamed live to the entire world.
HWPL believes that the global community should work together to create a world of peace and that they, themselves, should all become messengers of peace. Global citizens transcending nationalities, ethnicities, and religions are increasingly joining the flow of making our world more peaceful with their commitment to help establish HWPL's International Peace Law.
There was a time when there were no universal human rights. No one could have imagined but today we all take it for granted. In the same way, no one can imagine the Declaration on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace but one day our future generations will take it as a given as well.
The International Convention seminar for the cessation of war and achievement of world peace was held by Georgian members of International Peace Youth Group (IPYG), and affiliated organization of Heavenly Culture World Peace Restoration of Light (HWPL), on Jan 25th at the conference room of ILIA University, Tbilisi, Georgia. The implementation of International convention to head off wars and armed conflicts is urgently needed, at a time when the Syrian war is dragging out and the refugee crisis is being occurred all over in Europe.
The event was opened by Olivia Jeon, the IPYG project coordinator introducing the peace movements of HWPL and IPYG. In the beginning Olivia Jeon said “the 1st Annual Commemoration of September 18th World Alliance of Religions' Peace Summit was held by HWPL, IPYG and the International Women Peace Group (IWPG) on Sep 18 2015 in Seoul, Republic of Korea. I’m deeply moved to see the international convention seminar held in Tbilisi, Georgia to put the peace agreement into practice today.
Mr. Luka Pertaia, a freelancer journalist of IWPR(Institute for War & Peace Reporting) who attended the seminar said “I think implementation of International convention for cessation of war and achievement of world peace is definitely essential. We are living in era of war… very few years without war. So the convention will provide new vision and new ideas for realizing ideal world.” which made him understand the significance of HWPL's activities to call for the international convention.
Other than the International law seminar, HWPL short film festival is to be held in Tbilisi on May 21st to call for two initiatives of HWPL for achieving world peace practically (Implementation of International Convention for cessation of war and World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Meeting for resolving the religious conflicts accounting about 80% of war and conflicts in the world).

As an International Peace organization registered under the UN DPI and umbrella organization of IPYG, HWPL has made practical peace movements in the world. Especially, chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL is visiting to the Philippines during his 24th peace tour. On January 24th and 25th Chairman Lee of HWPL participated in the unveiling ceremony of the Declaration of World Peace Monument. And designated Cotabato City State Polytechnic College as the first HWPL Peace Academy in the Philippines. Though Mindanao in the Philippines was the hot spot that shed lives of 120,000 people due to religious conflicts between Islam and Catholic for the past 40 years, the chairman Lee meditated the signing of a peace agreement between representatives of both religions’ leaders. Only after 2 years, the signing has made good examples for resolving conflicts like erecting HWPL Peace Monument in conflict zone, Decommissioning of MILF and so on.
