WORLD PEACE FORUM

The World Peace Forum (WPF) is a meeting place to analyse the problems underlying conflicts and to identify the best strategies to consolidate a coalition of shared values ​​and interests capable of securing PEACE and sustainable development.
The WPF involves the main political, economic, religious, cultural and social representatives of the various societies in order to analyse the causes of conflicts and to reform global and regional programs to secure and build a lasting PEACE with a fair distribution of resources and respect fundamental rights of the human person: in particular those of women and young people.

The 7th World Peace Forum will be organized in cooperation with the Office of Presidential Special Envoy for Interfaith and Inter-Civilizational Dialogue and Cooperation of Republic of Indonesia and bears a great theme namely “The Middle Path for the New World Civiliziation”, to respond the current situation where crisis of civilization is taking place in many parts of the world. Such crisis of civilization is rooted at the dynamic world system that put human interest as the solely purpose of human being to become an unfortunate object of human exploitation. This situation has created many problems such as climate change, food insecurity, energy scarcity, natural disasters, war, and economic as well as financial crisis. This also encouraged the emergence of secularism, and extremism, that become world-dominated ideology and worse, at the same time the world is also experiencing disorder from global to local, from ethnic conflicts to wars. Undoubtedly, our world needs a new approach to promote world peace. In this juncture, this year’s Forum will discuss that new approach namely the Middle Path.
This was the main theme of the 7th World Peace Forum on interreligious dialogue, held in Jakarta from August 14 to 16, in which 43 countries participated with religious leaders, academics and thinkers, scholars and activists.
The Foundation supports this initiative, also in the life of the World Peace Forum scheduled in Naples in July 2019, which was presented on this occasion.
