Overview
Who We Are?
Asian Conference of Religions for Peace (ACRP), also known as Religions for Peace Asia is the world’s largest regional body of religiously inspired people working for peace and interreligious harmony. Based on the tenets of truth, justice, and human dignity, its members are active in their home countries, in the Asia-Pacific region, and across the world.
What We Do?
Currently, ACRP has composed of five prioritized project areas: namely,
  1. 1
    Human trafficking,
  2. 2
    Education of the dignity of Life,
  3. 3
    Conflict transformation and reconciliation,
  4. 4
    Development and environment and
  5. 5
    Advancement of youth leadership.
What is General Assembly?
The General Assembly is the supreme governing body of ACRP, and it generally meets once every five years. The key functions of General Assembly are to review the performance and activities of the past five years to initiate new activities and polices to set new directions and goals for ACRP.

The main theme of the 9th General Assembly will be
Asian Religious Communities in Action: Moving towards an Inclusive, Healthy, Prosperous, Peaceful Asia in developing an interfaith movement working for positive peace and shared well-being across Asia and the Pacific based on the national chapters with governmental, intergovernmental, and non-governmental civil society actors.
Objectives of the General Assembly
The objectives of the Assembly are:
  1. 1
    to streamline ACRP and make it a more action-oriented organization;
  2. 2
    to reaffirm and strengthen ACRP’s commitment and engagement in assisting people, whose lives and livelihood are being placed at risk in the Asia-Pacific region, in collaboration with other partners so that we can provide genuine benefits for them;
  3. 3
    to advance ACRP further in a changing Asia-Pacific region.
We, ACRP, are looking forward to meeting you at the virtual Assembly!

  • CONCEPT
    This youth pre-assembly in 2021 will be one of goal of the Asia Youth Peace Camp which has been held since 2014. We have been creating true friendships with lots of irreplaceable memories through these years. Also, we have strengthened our network and applied our learning into actions in each country.
    In this year’s youth assembly, we will reflect root of our friendship. Hopefully, this youth camp will become a significant moment to enrich our friendships by sharing what we have done together with all due sincere appreciation and true heart. In order to fulfill this purpose, we remind religious value and root of human relationship, like “thankfulness” or “gratefulness” in this program.
    Meanwhile, as we have recognized, there are not only Covid-19 pandemic but also many issues in Asia, and some of our friends are involved in. Because they are our true friends so we should definitely regard those issues as our own. Therefore, it will be our mission that we pray for them, send a huge encouragement to them and think about what we should do for them.

    Performance for Purification, (Okiyome no Mai) with Japanese Drums
    Ms. Masako Izumo
    At the age of 16, Ms. Izumo was involved in a life-and-death bus accident that left her with severe damage to her spine and pelvis, but with the support of many people, she miraculously recovered. In the process of this recovery, she experienced a world beyond human knowledge. While studying clinical psychology and meditation, she came into contact with a wisdom of the body and entered the world of dance. While handing down the ancient art of Shinto dance (miyamai), she also creates dances that reflect Japan's unique view of nature, which finds beauty in all things and all life.
