PEACE POLE presented at the 2ND World Culture Forum-Dresden, Germany

October 8-10, 2009

Mr. Hiroo Saionji, President of The World Peace Prayer Society and President of the Goi Peace Foundation was invited to take part in the forum at the World Culture Forum in Dresden, Germany.

Mr. Saionji stressed that this global crisis is not only about the economy but is at its core a crisis in human consciousness, and therefore advocated the creation of a new civilization based on the 4-S Concept – an integrated platform with four foundational pillars: Sustainability, Systems, Science and Spirituality. In order to achieve a worldwide cultural paradigm shift, Mr. Saionji invited the participants to work all together toward the creation of a critical mass made of far-sided pioneers worldwide to lead humanity into a bright and harmonious future. He encouraged the Forum’s audience to join forces in the fundamental transformation of our present materialistic civilization.   

 After having made his keynote presentation, Mr. Saionji offered a Peace Pole with the universal peace message, May Peace Prevail on Earth, in 8 languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish) to the organizers of the World Culture Forum. Mr. Frey was honored to receive the Peace Pole. The Peace Pole was placed on stage during the entire World Culture Forum and will serve as a world peace monument for the upcoming world culture forum.

Among the founders of the WORLD CULTURE FORUM, it is a foregone conclusion that, in the dynamic and complicated world in which we live today, we can only find temporary solutions to such problems, and that these solutions must be reworked and redefined over time.  For more information:
