Universal Peace Federation (UPF)
UPF Peace Council
43 Lancaster Gate, W2 3NA
10.30 am Sat 6th December 2014
The Peace Council was proposed as the forum to bring together national level people of many backgrounds in order to pool their efforts. We intend to plan for 2015 for the projects and activities that we feel passionate about and that correspond to the UPF ethos. UPF in the UK is known for holding events and activities such as commemorating special UN Days such as Genocide and Holocaust Day, International Family Day, International Women's Day, Interfaith Week, and International Peace Day. We are also known for human rights events, interfaith activities and the development of Youth UPF. We are a partner of Parliament Week and Youth UPF held a debate on Lowering the Voting Age to Sixteen during Parliament Week 2014. We have held a series of events to raise awareness of human rights issues of sexual violence in eastern DR Congo and Conflict Minerals.
We will be having our Peace Council on December 6th 2014 in 43 Lancaster Gate. You will be joining activists from different parts of the UK. There will be a number of notable speakers present on the day who have been part of our regular activities throughout the year.
Annual Membership is only £30 if you join before the Peace Council (or at the reception desk on the day), where entrance to the Peace Council will be £5 instead of £12 to cover lunch costs. Otherwise it will cost £12 to attend the Peace Council.
