Vision and Mission

Making the World Better for Future Generations

The Sunhak Peace Prize was established to help resolve worldwide suffering, conflict, poverty and threats to the environment by promoting a comprehensive, future-oriented vision of peace.

Sustainable peace in the 21st century can only be accomplished by resolving the tensions and conflicts we find throughout the world by developing a global culture of mutual respect and cooperation.

Based on the Founder’s vision of “One Family Under God,” the Sunhak Peace Prize encourages all people to dedicate themselves to achieving a peaceful world by resolving to exercise dialogue and cooperation over conflict and competition.

Responsibility
Responsibility of the
current generation toward
future generations
Future generations refer not only to our own physical descendants
but also to all future generations to come. Since all the decisions made
by the current generation will either positively or negatively affect them,
we must take responsibility for our actions.
Love for community
Humankind is one universal
family consisting of successive
generations
The Sunhak Peace Prize sees humankind as a community of love connected
by consecutive generations. Therefore, as parents care for their children
with unconditional love, those living today should create an environment of peace
for future generations. Until now, discussions concerning the ethics of peace have been confined to current problems. However, the concept of peace underlying the Sunhak Peace Prize is based on the reciprocity between current and future generations.

  • Respect for Human Development

  • Conflict Resolution

  • Ecological Conservation
    Finding solutions to climate change and the depletion of natural resources to create a sustainable balance between the natural and human worlds.
