Fiji joins South Korea, France, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, India, Zambia, and the United States of America in cooperation between an international peace Non Government OrganisationÂ named Heavenly Culture,Â World Peace,Â Restoration of LightÂ (HWPL)Â and international actors â€“ civil society organizations and governments.
With the theme of â€œLegislate Peace â€“ Implementation of the DPCW for Sustainable Developmentâ€, the event is expected to expand the agreement by collecting further public support for the establishment of a legally binding international law for peace based on the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).

The participants will discuss the necessity of bringing peace in the South Pacific Islands and the practical measures to support the DPCW at the national level.
The DPCW, a comprehensive document which clarifies the role of members of the international society toâ€‚preventâ€‚andâ€‚resolveâ€‚conflicts, is in the process of being introduced to the UN as a draft resolution.
As part of the process, HWPL and its affiliated youth organization, IPYG, promote worldwide â€œLegislate Peaceâ€ (LP) project, which has gained 1.5 million support from 195 countries through supporting signatures and peace letters written to their respective national leaders.
The HPWL said they hope the high-level government officials present will support peace initiatives such as the international law for peace and peace education.
There will also be a â€œPeace Letterâ€ campaign that will urge the participants to write supporting letters for the DPCW to the head of state.
This campaign has been carried out worldwide to receive the responses from each head of state around the world.
