Malasyian Minister and Five Vice-Chancellors Become Ambassadors for Peace

The Malaysia Star reports on a UPF-sponsored conference for academics:

The conference, themed “Culture of Heart through Character Education”, was held in Kuala Lumpur and attended by more than 200 academics from public and private universities.

In his keynote address, [Deputy Higher Education Minister Datuk] Idris encouraged the participants to make concerted efforts towards nation-building through character education.

“For our global reality to be reconfigured, universities and higher education institutions should assume an even more prominent role as promoters of the crucial values that are the glue of society,” he said.

Idris and five university vice-chancellors then received Ambassador for Peace certificates (these bear Rev Moon’s signature), and there was a speech from “UPF Asia peace education director Dr Robert Kittel”.

Also present at the event were UPF senior adviser Dr Yoo Choong Young and Pure Love and True Family Malaysia for World Peace president Tan Sri Zaleha Ismail.
