Dear brothers and sister,
We would like to report you about the IAPP Inauguration event which took place in Tirana International Hotel in Tirana - Albania on November 25th 2017. Right after the IAPP Inauguration on Balkan level, which took place in Pristine - Kosovo on 23rd - 24th of September, we started preparation for the inauguration on national level. Our goal was to have at least 30 correct and former MP present, therefore together with Mr. Apostoli - Chairman of UPF in Albania and a Former MP, we worked hard to make sure MPs take seriously our invitation and attend the event. Actually, 28th and 29th of November are national holydays in Albania and most of MPs & VIPs travel with their families, therefore we had to work really hard.

Voices of Peace

Voci di Pace
10. Anniversary 2007 - 2017

By Giorgio Gasperoni
Voices of Peace has been published in Italy and San Marino since March 2007. The Idea came with the initiatives developed in 2003 with the IIFWP with the Conferences organized throughout the world on the theme "The world at a turning point" and in 2005 with the establishment of UPF in New York. We registered the magazine in San Marino in 2005.
But we could start to publish it in March 2007. We wanted to involve our Ambassadors of Peace and keep them connected with our activities. We asked advice to some Managing Editors of other magazines in order to have a good input. - read more - latest edition
