‘You cannot buy another planet'

They say that out of the mouths of babes come pearls of wisdom. That was true of the young Germans gathered for a WCPM Global Youth Symposium held in conjunction at the German Central Park during the Cleveland 2017 German American Festival. The goal of the session was to motivate German organizations from the Stadtverband to work with local partners to energize everyone through hands on service.

So it was that the noble speeches by some of our leading politicians were being upstaged by the Worlds Children representing Germany who spoke home truths about immigration, peace, power and corruption in global affairs.

"The Worlds Children are disappointed with you," young Justine from North Royalton scolded the politicians.

"The adults are too concerned about their own money and wealth to think about our future," a 14 year old from Cleveland declared.

Adam from Fairview Park warned….You cannot buy another planet.
When People commit crimes, they are sent to jail.  Why is it so difficult to punish those who harm other people, plants and animals that make up the environment?

"We are tired of wondering whether it will snow during summer." he added, urging the United States and other Nations to get more involved in climate change.

Joining them was Heidi and Ursula from Parma.  They were not too sure about corruption in world politics, but were adamant that "big people must never cheat on the Worlds Children".

Afterwards, they were congratulated by Ambassador Renate, who said:  "If we were to hear All the Worlds Children, and if we were to get them to decide about the destiny of the world, then it is there that we will find the truth and the path with Iceality."

Ambassador Renate was doubtful that the present free-market development model could be reformed adequately without the Theory of Iceality.  She was deeply critical of the poverty caused by "neo-liberal development models imposed by powerful elites and it is unacceptable that 15% of the world's people received 80% of its income".

"Neo-liberalism is inhumane," she said.  "We need to tell the truth, and we can only do this if we have the new political and social morality like that proposed by the Peace Imitative from EXPO 2000 in Germany, the Worlds Children Peace Monument."

The President of the Ohio German American Business Association (OhioGABA), David Jakupca said, 
“The Democrats failed to make positive permanent progress and squandered the eight years under President Barrack Obama. By now, all of the North East Ohio politicians should have endorsed the building of the Cleveland based National coast-to-coast ‘Great American Peace Trail”. But in Cuyahoga County political elites, working hard with greedy business people and unscrupulous investors, are putting private gain before the peace and welfare of the citizens and blocking the public economic development of the region. Now under President Trump, they are practicing a new form of ‘Rocking Horse Policy' where there is lot of waste of time and resources going back and forth without making any real permanent progress….this is No-Way to a sustainable future.  
PARMA Peace Stone
Great American Peace Trail
A special plaque for the Parma Peace Stone was installed during the festival at the Memorial Garden of The German Central Park by Jimmy Halm, the park’s facilities manager.  The Parma Peace Stone represents the German Peace Initiative that was conceived during EXPO 2000, the World’s Fair held in Hannover, Germany. It was designed and built by David Jakupca at the historic ARK in Berea as a project of the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) in cooperation with the United Nations 2000 Culture of Peace Program. The concept of a physical permanent universal symbol of renewal and living peace for all living things was organized in support of the UN Decade of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World and the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. The incorporation of the rights of flora and fauna in a "Universal Peace Equation" is the first major change in achieving a sustainable global Culture Peace on Earth in over 2000 Years. http://theicea.com/page22
The WCPM was officially inaugurated in 2003 at the 3rd World Peace Conference held in Verbania, Italy where it received an Italian Medal of Arts Award. It was presented as a 'gift' to the people of Cleveland to be located at the Cleveland Cultural Gardens, it was debuted at its present location at Coe Lake Park in Berea, Ohio.
The WCPM Project is to encourage positive community participation through the establishment of international site-specific works of public art, through cultural education and entrepreneurial training to children around the World. The WCPM Appraisal is another step forward to nationalizing ‘Great American Peace Trail’, the coast-to-coast trail of WCPM Peace Stones in city parks designed to stop the violence in America’s youth. The WCPM Appraisal also serves as a milestone for the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts' and that is, promoting a sustainable global Culture of Peace for all Living Things. http://theicea.com/page33
