2018 Merry Christmas and Happy New Years Message from Ambassador Renate

Dear All the Worlds Children,

I, on behalf of the WCPM, wish you and your Family a Merry Christmas. I feel proud to have such a dedicated work cadre in this organization. It is a privilege for me to share that our organization has shown a significant growth over the year and it all happened because of you all. Your efforts and hard work have made our mission of Peace through the 'Theory of Iceality' so successful.

"Ugh, humanity. In one breath our kindness and generosity can leave us speechless, while in the next, we’re floored by others own greed and intolerance. And yet, somewhere between these polarities lies the essence of being human"
Ambassador Renate

 2019 is here we’re taking a tour of both the light and darkness of our human condition. We meet the unexpected activists fighting for refugees, unpack our competitive drive according to climate change and appreciate the human’s ability to create art, feel the feels, and communicate without words.
Dr Abdul Jabbar Brohi has completed over 500 WCPM posters! If you’ve ever felt like sometimes it’s hard to be a human in the modern world, his posters will remind you of our infinite tenderness and perfect fragility and we hope to publish in an eBook soon. I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his continued partnership.

The holiday season brings thoughts of joy and gratitude, and there’s no better time to express our thanks and sincere appreciation for your amazing hard work, creativity and dedication in receiving the International 2018 Public Prize Prize! It is social activists like you who make our jobs a pleasure and keep our the WCPM successful.


So a big THANK YOU for being part of our WCPM and for helping make the world a better place. 2018 has been an exciting year for us, full of growth and new opportunities. I once again would like to express my gratitude towards you all and wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a great Holidays. I believe that we will work this way in our future endeavors.

We can't wait to start with you in 2019.

"Merry Christmas and Goodwill NOT to just mankind
but to all living things - the Worlds Children!"

Artists for Peace David and Ambassador Renate Jakupca, Laureates for the 2018 Edition of the Public Peace Prize

American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca recipients of 2018 Public Peace Prize 

Unveiling of the winners of the Public Prize for Peace, 2018 edition

December 10, 2018

This much desired moment of individuals and communities in search of hope and peace has finally arrived!
The public this year presented a total of 19 candidates from 10 countries: four candidates from India, three from Pakistan, three from Colombia, and other candidates from Argentina, Cameroon, , Mexico, Peru, Sierra Leona, Trinidad and Tobago, United States. Once again, the origin of the candidates is different, as are the different ways that people find to express their deepest desire to live in peace.
The Public Peace Prize (PPP) is awarded to 11 finalists who have fulfilled all the conditions to become laureates. The PPP recognizes all of their efforts and their undeniable contribution to peace in their countries.

What’s new in the 2018 edition?
This 5th edition of the PPP has innovated by developing a more collaborative than competitive approach. Finalists’ support teams were invited to support and publicize all the finalists from any country, not just the nominally nominated candidate. The visibility given to each winner depends entirely on the sum total of the various forms of support that the public has given them during the period determined after the launch of each finalist.

2018 Laureates who transform their community
The PPP congratulates and notes the enthusiasm, courage, perseverance, dedication and determination of men and women, human rights defenders, environmentalists, artists committed to peace, media initiatives such as community radio, newspaper or the virtual platform.
The PPP congratulates and recognizes the laureates as artisans and peacemakers who carry out their work to respond to various issues in a context of war or armed conflict, political violence, poverty, economic marginalization, social exclusion. They focus their actions on groups of women and children who are victims of violence, physically disabled, vulnerable groups, marginalized and excluded, so that they can access a dignified life, in tolerance, compassion, solidarity, mutual aid and social inclusion. These artisans and peacemakers work to promote education, non-violence and the rights of women and children beyond social and cultural prejudices. They are also aimed at resolving conflicts, building peace and making cities safer and protecting the environment.
The PPP also congratulates them because they have succeeded in developing particular approaches that integrate justice, economics, culture and technology in one way or another to meet the challenges of today’s societies. They bring with them a world of tolerance and harmony that builds relationships between men and women on gender equality, respect, non-violence and non-discrimination. Finally, these solidarity and collective initiatives become lighthouses that mobilize hope and build the future in a culture of peace.

The mission of the Public Prize for Peace
The PPP honors and celebrates the work of an individual or initiative that has profoundly contributed to the culture of peace. It does not grant the winners any monetary compensation but the will to make them better recognized on a planetary scale, through the social networks. In addition, a plaque in the image of the representation on the web will be given in memory of this distinction.
The PPP would like to thank everyone who participated in this edition for their openness to the new approach that is more collaborative than competitive. PPP is pleased to offer visibility to all peace initiatives, whether known or not. The only objective of this prize is to make known a maximum of initiatives and artisans of peace to the general public, and this beyond any form of competition!

The ARK in Berea Museum

The ARK in Berea Museum

  The historic ARK in Berea, home of the sustainable global Environmental Arts Movement,  helped inaugurate the green building trend that is now sweeping America.  In 2000, mainly because of their heightened talent to match ability with vision, David and Renate were the ideal avant-guides to help lead the Nation into the next Millennium when they spent six months in Europe at EXPO2000, the World's Fair in Hanover, Germany as American Cultural Ambassadors.

Over the years, ICEA has gained a reputation for excellence based upon a unique library of specialized, current information on global importance and a wide range of imaginative programming and collaborations with other organizations to meet the needs of a broad constituency. With affiliates across the globe, the ICEA supports research, information sharing and effective action promoting a sustainable culture of Peace.

ICEA is a place where people are encouraged to develop their own unique individual skills and talents for themselves, their community, nation and the world. The ARK in Berea as a retreat, provides a healthy holistic environment to aid people in their social, emotional, physical, intellectual, spiritual as well as artistic growth.

The ARK in Berea Museum a member in good standing with the Northeastern Ohio Inter-Museum Council.

Founded in 1942, The Northeastern Ohio Inter-Museum Council serves over 140 institutional members in Cuyahoga and six adjacent counties. Members range from large, internationally renowned museums in major urban centers to metro parks, nature facilities and small local history museums spread across parts of the Western Reserve.

The purpose of this organization is to enable its members to preserve history and works of art, to advance science and natural history, or to study and display works of art, minerals, animal, and plant life. NEOIMC members work together to find solutions to their shared concerns in the fields of finance, legislation, public relations, education, personnel and related fields, and do what is necessary and proper to carry out the purposes for which individual member organizations were created.

The Council provides a group forum for airing common goals and issues; sponsors educational workshops for museum staff and volunteers; hosts general meetings at member museums.

As the Spititual Father of the Envirionmental Art Movement, David Jakupca was an innovative artist who took the world by storm as American Cultural Ambassador, Universal Peace Ambassador,
Founder of the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA)

    This is due primarily to his pioneer work on The 'Theory of Iceality' on Environmental Arts:which is a practical study of the aesthetics of the relationship between Humans and their Environment through Arts and Culture, ultimately promoting an effective sustainable  global Culture of Peace between All Living Things ~ Human, Plant and Animal Kingdoms. By incorporating the rights of flora and fauna in a "Universal Peace Equation" is the first major change in achieving a sustainable Peace on Earth in over 2000 Years.

David and Renate Jakupca are also responsible for enlightening the art community to the new genre of social activist Environmental Art when they founded the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) in 1987 at the historic ARK in Berea , Ohio.  ICEA was organized into three divisions:  Environmental, Humanities, Arts and Culture, this acts as an umbrella organization of affiliated groups  that support related agendas with the idea of creating a prototype NGO that is easily replicated in other communities, cities, states and countries.  As the first professional art organization to be solely dedicated  to this endeavor, this has made ICEA to be the leading force in the Environmental arts and a force for socially responsible activity.

According to Jakupca, beginning with ICEA, the Environmental Arts Genre has grown exponentially and has over the past decades  spawned a wide variety of very similar phrases and art terms such as; eco art, land art, ecoventions, natural art, green art, outdoor art, social activity, earth art, recycled art, sustainable art, ecodedsign, etc. These can be all be considered sub-categories under the umbrella of the main Environmental Art Genre. While Jakupca's art is presented in some of the most prestigious museums across the country, none houses more than the ARK in Berea, Ohio.
