Peace Letter

One Voice that Tells the Answer to Peace

HWPL's 'Peace Letter' Campaign is an activity that is part of the Legislate Peace Project which supports and urges for the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).

Youth from Around the World
Holding Pens for Peace

Many youth and citizens from around the globe have informed national leaders from each country about the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) and urged them to support its implementation through their handwritten peace letters in order for the DPCW to be developed into a legally binding international instrument. These handwritten peace letters are part of a voluntary peace campaign practiced by all members of civil society that can be easily participated in by any member of society.

Active Support from
the International Community

Currently, government leaders and heads of international organizations and civil society leaders have received handwritten peace letters from citizens all over the world and are giving much support. The DPCW is being supported by various international organizations including the Central American Parliament (PARLACEN), the Pan-African Parliament and the International Centre for Black Sea-Baltic Studies and Consensus Practices (Centre BBS). Many leaders are now listening to the citizens’ calls for peace contained within the handwritten peace letters.

Communication and Cooperation for
the Realization of the World of Peace

The handwritten peace letters, as part of the Peace Letter Campaign, promote peace awareness among citizens and highlight the important role that civil society plays as an active actor in the peacebuilding process. This campaign also strongly urges for support and implementation, at both the national and international levels, of a legal mechanism to ensure and maintain peace. In this way, campaign activities are being conducted based on continuous communication and cooperation between civil society and the government with the purpose of the implementation of the international law for peace.
