Summit Information 6 | The Establishment of an International Advisory Council of Religious Leaders

A single meeting may motivate leadership, however, motivation must be sustained and leadership must be vigilantly exercised, if its effects will last. The historical momentum of conflict must be met with an equally historical momentum for peace. To ensure that the spirit and declaration of the Summit creates sustained momentum, the participants of the Summit formed an International Advisory Council of Religious Leaders to function as a resource for the Secretary General of the United Nations the United Nations' efforts to resolve international conflicts.

The creation of an Advisory Council was a first step toward developing a World Academy of Nonviolence and Ethics. It has global branches and provides research, education, and leadership on ethical issues and practical mechanisms for maintaining world peace.
