Opportunity and Hope at a Time of Global Crisis: Interdependence, Mutual Prosperity and Universal Values
Saturday 12 September 2020, 11:00am - 06:40pm

On the foundation of the successful World Summit 2020 convened in Seoul in February of this year, and a subsequent series of “Peace Talks” webinars held over the past six months, the Universal Peace Federation will convene its first virtual International Leadership Conference (ILC) on September 11-13, 2020 dedicated to the theme, “Opportunity and Hope at a Time of Global Crisis: Interdependence, Mutual Prosperity and Universal Values”.

This ILC 2020 Webinar series is commemorating both the centenary of UPF’s Co-Founder, Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon (1920-2012), and the 15-year anniversary of the Universal Peace Federation (inaugurated on September 12, 2005).
