Peace Summit 2014, The World Alliance of Religions

Statement of Intent

While it may, in most cases be too simplistic to say that ideological differences based on religion or culture are the cause of war in our world today, it is not too much to say that these differences are exploited to heighten the community's propensity for violent behaviour.

Through the World Alliance of Religions' Peace Summit, HWPL seeks to create a forum for dialogue centring on the creation of a commonly acceptable value-system between secular and religious communities in all socio-political sectors of our divers societies.

Such a value system will form the basis for the creation of peace agreements and a universally applicable constitution of interfaith relations, as well as education materials which can be used across the spectrum of humanity's diversity to begin revolutionising the basic precepts of our cultures and ideologies which provide the central tenants promoting conflict and violent behaviour.

Goals of the summit

1 To begin the process of establishing a universally applicable system of values focussing on aspects of morality and experience of life that bind us together as a global family.
2 Establish a basic ideological foundation upon which a World Alliance of Religions can be built in order to bring conflicts founded on differing religious ideologies to an end.
3 Draft and publicly make the Declaration of the World Alliance of Religions.
4 Define the roles of cultural leaders, both secular and religious, in the creation and implementation of a new, heavenly culture.
