SGI-Korea Students Conduct Peace and Culture Events

An exhibition at Daegu University

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of second Soka Gakkai President Josei Toda's 1957 declaration for the abolition of nuclear weapons, the SGI-Korea student division sponsored peace and cultural events from May 14-June 6, 2007, at 120 university campuses throughout South Korea. The events drew some 57,000 visitors, including students and faculty.

This year's program, titled "126 Projects for Creating a Nuclear Free World," included a variety of activities such as exhibitions and discussions on peace based on SGI President Daisaku Ikeda's 2007 Peace Proposal, "Restoring the Human Connection: The First Step to Global Peace."
