The three-day convening, “Roadmap for National Transformation: Liberty, Prosperity an Integrity through Moral and Innovative Leadership,” underscored the importance of  shared principles and values and their practical applications in advancing social cohesion and human development. 

Paraguayan President Horatio Cartes, Vice President Juan Afara, Speaker of the Parliament Hugo Velazquez and fourteen former Latin American presidents joined GPF Chairman Dr. Hyun Jin P. Moon at the historic opening session.




Second Summit of the Latin American Presidential Mission

The 2014 Global Peace Convention hosted the Second Summit of the Latin American Presidential Mission. The Presidential Mission emerged from efforts by the Global Peace Foundation, the Paraguay Institute for the Development of Thought, the Esquipulas Foundation, and the Uruguay Leadership Conference to engage former heads of state to work “beyond religious, political, social, and ethnic differences for the unity of Latin America as a continent of peace.”
