Details

Launched in 2001, Ambassadors for Peace® is the largest and most diverse network of peace leaders. They come from all walks of life representing many races, religions, nationalities, and cultures, and commit to:

  • Stand on the common ground of universal moral principles, promoting reconciliation, overcoming barriers, and building peace.
  • Form a global network representing the diversity of the human family and all disciplines of endeavor.
  • Promote cooperation beyond boundaries of religion, race, ethnicity, and nationality.
  • Practice “living for the sake of others” as the guiding principle for building a global community.

Ambassador for Peace Initiative Interfaith Peacebuilding

  • DIALOGUE AND COOPERATION: Interfaith conferences and forums challenge people to identify aspects of their scriptures and traditions that can benefit all humanity while also affirming their religion’s identity. Interfaith dialogue encourages understanding, respect, and cooperation, recognizing that we are all members of one family under God.
  • INTERFAITH COUNCILS: Peace is advanced when religious leaders bring the resources of heart and conscience to the tasks of conflict resolution and peacebuilding. On local, national, and global levels, interfaith councils enable people of faith to contribute their wisdom and work effectively for peace alongside government, business, and civil society.
  • MIDDLE EAST PEACE INITIATIVE: Interfaith pilgrimages, consultations, and grassroots encounters in Israel and the Palestinian Territories build understanding and respect among Jews, Muslims, and Christians.
  • CONSULTATIONS & SYMPOSIA: In many parts of the world addressing security issues is a necessary step toward peace. UPF’s Office of Peace and Securitybrings decades of experience and expertise to peace initiatives in the Middle East, East Asia, South Asia, Africa, and the South Caucasus. Working with UPF’s Office of Embassy Relations, they hold symposia with diplomats, government officials, think tanks, academics, and international NGOs.Ambassador for PeaceInitiativePeace and Security
