To Observe International Day of Conscience on April 5
“Let us sow the seeds of conscience in education, saving the world with conscience education.” ~ Dr. Hong, Tao-Tze, president of FOWPAL
LOS ANGELES, April 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — April 5, 2022 marks the third UN-designated International Day of Conscience, and the Federation of World Peace and Love (FOWPAL) will host a virtual observance from 3:00-5:00 pm GMT on that day, with a focus on conscience education, integrating the balance between the development of technology and spirituality to build character in younger generations and help the world move toward a better and more stable future.
FOWPAL firmly believes that conscience is the key to resolving all problems. It launched the movement of An Era of Conscience in 2014, and beginning in 2018, it collaborated with the Permanent Missions to the United Nations of Bahrain, Kiribati, Equatorial Guinea, and other countries on a draft resolution titled “Promoting the Culture of Peace with Love and Conscience.” On July 25, 2019, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the draft resolution submitted by the Kingdom of Bahrain, declaring April 5 as the International Day of Conscience.
Thereafter, FOWPAL has been engaged in activities each month to honor various UN-designated days, with an emphasis on conscience, uniting global citizens to act with conscience, transforming their communities, countries, and the world. To date, it has held more than 60 such events, where leaders from all walks of life from around the world have shared their insights on fostering sustainable development through conscience, urging the world to work together to promote a culture of peace with love and conscience.
The promotion of International Day of Conscience is gaining momentum around the world. Last month, a webinar on the International Day of Education organized by FOWPAL was broadcast on MNN (Manhattan Neighborhood Network) in New York. During the forum, FOWPAL President Dr. Hong, Tao-Tze delivered a speech titled “Transforming Education with Love and Conscience,” highlighting, “The core value of education lies in inspiring people’s conscience and self-awareness, thereby shaping individuals and the landscape of future society. The most important education for everyone from birth to death is conscience education.” Through the power of education for all, the promotion of the movement of An Era of Conscience is expected to inspire global citizens’ conscience and good deeds to create a future of love and peace together.
To commemorate the third International Day of Conscience, FOWPAL not only will host online events on April 5, but also has organized a series of activities with various organizations around the world since April 1, aiming to gather conscience advice from all walks of life and inject positive energy for the sustainable development of the Earth. The International Day of Conscience is a day for all of humanity, and everyone’s conscience and good deeds, great or small, are powerful forces in changing the world. FOWPAL invites everyone to send their conscience words and actions (video, text, photos, drawings, etc.) to its International Day of Conscience (ICDAY) mailbox at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on its social media pages, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
FOWPAL also invites schools of all levels worldwide to observe this day during the week of April 5 (April 4 to 8) to promote conscience education, allowing the seeds of goodwill to be planted in students’ hearts and guiding them to better themselves. FOWPAL has created free materials for conscience education, and the citizens of the world are welcome to use them to foster positive values. They are also encouraged to send FOWPAL recordings (videos, articles, photos, etc.) of their practice and promotion of conscience-driven education. As a result, thoughts and actions of conscience will spread throughout the world, positively impacting everyone.
The ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine has shocked the entire world. The global community shares a common destiny, and the war’s brutality and casualties have deepened global citizens’ aspirations for peace. With a song titled “A Prayer for Peace” and another prayer for the world, FOWPAL hopes that the deceased will rest in peace and the survivors will be comforted. It prays for an end to the war and people’s suffering so that people can return to their safe and stable lives as soon as possible and work together to bring about world peace.
The pandemic is still raging around the world, so people must exercise caution. FOWPAL has been sharing a one-minute video, featuring useful tips for epidemic prevention titled “3 Don’ts, 5 Do’s and 6 tips,” encouraging everyone to share it widely through their platforms to benefit the people of the world. FOWPAL’s President Dr. Hong, Tao-Tze emphasizes, “With conscience, comes a peaceful world; with happiness, comes a joyful family.” FOWPAL hopes that everyone’s conscience will be awakened and that everyone will work together for a peaceful and sustainable future!
