Education is key to building a strong foundation for society. The next generation must learn the skills and knowledge that will ensure a better future. But it is just as important to be able to educate people with respect to tolerance (religious, ethnic) and freedom (democracy and transparency) around the world. The HLPFF provides a forum where experts can speak on a number of issues, whether they be extremist ideas and elements in society or how changing weather patterns may affect the environment and bring about conflict. Understanding these forces and developing relationships among those who work for peace will help ensure
a better future.
