It has become a point of
pride for many countries, cultures and peoples to join WP1 in our
common call and Ten-Year Initiative to bring an end to all wars,
in favor of securing true and lasting peace for all people, especially
for the children of present and future generations. In collaboration
with WP1, Mr. Hygaard and Mr. Mpofu are authorized to secure venues,
appoint public relations agencies of international standing,
recruit event fund raising experts, enter into agreement with Corporate
Sponsors (Global & Local), Broadcasters, journalists and established
news reporters, as well as secure appropriate financial donations
and/or contributions to the WP1 501(c)(3) charitable, non-profit
Further, as WP1 Ambassadors, Mr. Hygaard and Mr.
Mpofu are invited to collaborate with WP1 to identify prospective
high-level dignitaries to serve as Official WP1 Global Peace Ambassadors.
As dignitaries, WP1 welcomes the endorsements, as well as direct
participation from His Eminence, former President Nelson Mandela,
Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan,
former U.S. President Jim Carter, Ms. Mary Robinson former President
of Ireland on Human Rights, Mr. Kenneth Kaunda (1st President of
Zambia), former Danish States-Minister Poul Nyrup Rasmussen, Mikael
Gorbachev (1st and only President of the USSR), former President
of Nigeria Mr. Olusegun Obasanjo, former President Bill Clinton,
Rt. Hon. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, (first female President Liberia),
Gro Harlen Brudtland, (first female Prime Minister of Norway), Mr.
Claes Nobel, Mr. Richard Branson, Mr. Bill Gates, Mr. Carlos Slim
Helú, Prime Ministers, Presidents and Chancellors of all
countries and o ther government leaders and mayors in our World
Peace efforts, to consider them respectfully, as potential candidates
for WP1's Ten-Regional Global Ambassador-Generals.
The role of the Chambers of Commerce is pivotal
to support such events, so are the Trade Union Representatives in
their own right and academicians, economists and financial experts
to provide economic and financial acumen to WP1 and its Ten Year
Global Peace Initiative. Although World Peace requires inspiration,
aspiration and human initiative, people of faith have always recognized
that Peace can only be achieved by Divine Grace. In concert with
WP1, Mr. Hygaard and Mr Mpofu will be tasked to appoint interfaith
religious and spiritual leaders to open and end the events in prayer.
Bishop Tutu for example, could lead such a process, but there is
a need to appoint a group of such highly distinguished and respected
interfaith men and women to serve in such capacity.
On December 8, 2007, WP1 will launch its first historic, 24-hour
worldwide television, radio, internet and streaming cellular broadcast,
expected to reach an audience of three-billion people. WP1 recognizes
no enemy and works on behalf of collective humanity's graduation
from war and from its paradigms and practices of division and destruction,
in favor of a safer, saner, more equitable, cooperative and prosperous
In Service to Earth and Humanity, World Peace
