Dear Community Leader/Ambassador for Peace,
On the foundation of holding continuous seminars, and meetings encouraging inter-religious and intercultural dialogue throughout Canada during the past couple of decades, the Women’s Federation for World Peace and Universal Peace Federation have come together to hold a conference under the broad theme of Educating for Peace and as such, you are hereby invited to participate at our 2012 national conference, in Toronto, on Saturday, June 9, 2012.
Location: Toronto Don Valley Hotel –175 Wynford Drive,Toronto,ON.,M3C 1J3
Time: 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 PM. (Luncheon is included). Registration from 8:30 A.M.
Theme: “Promoting Strong Family Values – Foundation for a Peaceful Nation”
Sponsor: Universal Peace Federation & Women’s Federation for World Peace
Host: Toronto Chapters of UPF and WFWP
Fee: $40 per individual or $70 per couple
Building on themes emphasized during previous conferences that have focused on Faith, Family, Service and Peace it was decided to focus this year’s gathering on strengthening the family as the foundation for peace in support of the International Day of Families promoted each year by the United Nations.
The family in Canada is undoubtedly experiencing continual evolution as the cultural, religious and ethnic composition of families is enhanced by the arrival of new immigrants. In addition, the challenges of intercultural marriages, the declining birth rate and the ageing of our population are issues of common concern.
The conference will explore some aspects of the impact of this process as it affects the expression of cultural and religious values through social encounters.
The Canadian chapters of the Universal Peace Federation and the Women’s Federation for World Peace share common goals through developing networks of individuals, organizations and Ambassadors for Peace committed to all aspects of peace through promoting dialogue, education, and service. Both organizations seek to bring civil society solutions to critical local and global problems. “Educating for Peace” conferences can make a significant contribution to the building of a world of lasting peace. Educating for peace starts in the family.
We hope you can reserve the time to be with us at this important conference.
