UPF

The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) has two key themes. The first is the promotion of altruism. UPF uses the slogan, ‘Living for the sake of others’. This conference has dealt with a lot about branding. The ultimate branding is to be respected and trusted as someone who has integrity, a company that is law abiding and is a valuable stakeholder in the community or nation or a nation that is respected for its contribution to solving the problems of other less fortunate nations or to resolving world problems.

Matteo Bergamini of Shout Out UK

“Up until when I turned 18 a few months ago, I was never interested in politics. Suddenly, I thought now that I can vote whom do I vote for? I must be informed. This type of event will help us (young people) to be informed and hopefully, more involved too”

On the 14th of October 2014, around 100 young people and political figures gathered in the House of Commons to discuss youth engagement in politics. Speakers included; Matteo Bergamini of Shout Out UK, Gisela Stuart MP, Rt Hon. Tom Brake, Naiha Masih, John Loughton of Dare 2 Lead, and Amira El-Houderi of Young Leaders and Youth UPF. However, due to the fantastic quality of the speakers and the points that they raised, much of the event was transformed into a discussion and exchange of ideas across the room.

AmiraHonourable members of the Parliament, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen, Today, I want to take this chance to remember a person who changed my perspective on leadership, in different ways. He was a very special person to many people who knew him. He was also able to inspire even those who never met him. I find it difficult to describe the essential truth about him as a person.
