HWPL and partner organisations IWPG and IPYG, extensively volunteer in community services to commemorate the UN Public Service Day 2019
Sydney, June 23, 2019 – Over the month of June, HWPL Sydney has been volunteering extensively in a series of community services initiatives across NSW, to commemorate the United Nations Public
Service Day on the 23rd of June 2019. The UN Public Service Day intends to celebrate the value and virtue of public service to the community. This is one in a line of volunteering activities that HWPL volunteers have carried out in June, starting with the ‘Trees for Peace ‘initiative on Saturday, 1st of July 2019. HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World
Peace and Restoration of Light) and its partner organisations, IWPG
(International Women’s Peace Group) and IPYG (International Peace
Youth Group) participated in this activity on the 1st to jointly celebrate World Environment Day and Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary. Held at the Harper’s Bush Reserve in Blacktown, NSW, volunteers from HWPL, IWPG, IPYG, other organizations and the general public from all round Sydney, gathered together to help clear
a pre-selected area of the reserve and then plant tree seedlings. Over
a dozen volunteers from HWPL and its partners together with the community planted over 30 trees which are in the continuing care of the City Council. Although the initial task was to plant the trees, HWPL, IWPG and IPYG volunteers aim to continually return to the reserve to assist with the maintenance and upkeep of this reserve and the environment, further strengthening the bond between members of the community, the council, spreading peace and harmony.
On the 23rd of June, 2019 volunteers from HWPL and its partner organizations joined the community in gardening work similar to that carried out during the ‘Trees for Peace’ initiative such as weeding, raking, planting and watering in the bush conservation area at the
Gallery Gardens, in the City of Parramatta Council, as a part of the
Bush-care and Regeneration Program carried out across Sydney.
The program was created recognizing the vast development of suburbs and neighbourhoods in Sydney that have led to deforestation and extinction of several native flora species and Australian bush. The environmental degradation has led to diminishing natural habitats of the native fauna species and their extinction. Thus in Sydney, in various locations on different days of the week, volunteers from within the community join local conservation specialists and help to preserve, protect and rehabilitate these areas of bush for the native fauna and flora species to thrive, conserving the ecological balance.
With public service initiatives like these and several more, HWPL emphasizes the significance and relevance of the Article 3 ‘Friendly Relations and the Prohibition of Acts of Aggression’ and Article 10 ‘Spreading a Culture of Peace for the Future Generations through Education’ of the DPCW (Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War).
The DPCW was drafted by international law experts in partnership with HWPL as the means to achieve world peace in the near future and create a legacy for our future generations. This international framework provides practical methods of resolving and preventing conflicts, acknowledgement and rectification of past mistakes which often lead to war between nations. Yet, its principles and efficiency start with the community; not just their awareness of the DPCW but also their participation and implementation of the values outlined in it, to successfully achieve the ultimate goal of world peace.
Thus HWPL and partner organisations will continue to support the community by actively participating in such volunteer work within the community, to foster and nurture the culture of peace and harmony as urged by the DPCW
