Seychelles at 2012 America’s Summit of the Global Peace Convention at Carter’s Presidential Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA ( The Seychelles Former President, Sir James R. Mancham, delivered a welcoming address on behalf of the Global Leadership Council at the opening ceremony of the 2012 America’s Summit of the Global Peace Convention which opened up yesterday (Wednesday, November 28) at the Carter’s Presidential Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

President Mancham shared the rostrum with Senator Jason Carter (nephew of former US President Jimmy Carter) of the Georgia State Senate; Senator Emmanuel Jones of the Georgia State Senate; HE Juan Carlos Wasmosy, former President of Paraguay; Honorable Nelson Marquezelli, Federal Congressman of Brazil; HE Vinicio Cerezo, former President of Guatemala; HE Louis Alberto Lucalle, Former President of Uruguay; and Dr. Preston Moon, founder of the Global Peace Foundation of USA.

On Thursday Sir James addressed a plenary session on the subject of “Sustainability, Conservation and Management of Maritime Resources” at the Marriott Marquis Hotel to some 1,000 participants attending this year’s Global Peace Convention.

The 2012 Global Peace Convention is the 4th such international gathering following assemblies in Manila, Nairobi, and Seoul, which advanced initiatives for regional developments as well as policy proposals in areas of environmental sustainability, inter-faith cooperation, volunteer service, trade, and commerce as mechanics for peace.

In a meeting with the media in Atlanta, Sir James said “that moral and innovative leadership in the area of building healthy families, ethical societies, and a global culture of peace will certainly clarify the importance of principled leadership not knowing in public office, but in corporate life, the non-profit sector, and other areas of civic lives as a pre-condition for social cohesion and peace.”

On Sunday, Sir James will have a breakfast meeting at the Martin Luther King Center and lunch at the CNN Center (which is the headquarters of CNN) before leaving Atlanta for London via Washington DC on the way to Bali, Indonesia, where he will be the guest speaker at the opening of the Second World Ecological Safety Assembly which is to take place in Bali, Indonesia, from December 9-12, 2012 under the theme “Survival and Development.”
