|Presentations of the principles of Ambassadors for Peace. Based on the AFP presentation from UPF-USA.|
Ambassadors for Peace are individuals whose lives exemplify the ideal of living for the sake of others, and who dedicate themselves to promoting universal moral values, strong family life, interreligious cooperation, international harmony, renewal of the United Nations, responsible mass media, and the establishment of a global culture of peace. Transcending racial, national and religious barriers, the Ambassadors for Peace contribute to the fulfillment of the hope of all ages, a unified world of peace, wherein the spiritual and material dimensions of all reality are harmonized.
The Ambassadors for Peace initiative was launched by Dr. Moon in January of 2001, giving rise to a series of educational programs aimed at reconciliation and peace. Nearly 70,000 Ambassadors for Peace have been appointed worldwide during the following four years. Beginning in 2004 a program was initiated to honor Ambassadors for Peace who had devoted themselves to peace.
