The Science behind Peace and Global Harmony is the "Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts". Developed in 1987, it is the practical study on 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 Wildlife  Kingdoms!   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://www.theicea.com/page22
The “Worlds Children Peace Monument" (WCPM) and the “Great American Peace Trail" (GAPT) Projects are international, public participatory art projects designed to engage children with hands on cross-cultural awareness in order to attain the common goal of sharing peace and diversity with their neighbors.  The peace projects have direct community impact through neighborhood beautification, community and economic development while building self-esteem and hope in America. They will help to build better neighborhoods where everyone can live, respect and accept each other as they diplomatically negotiate errors and differences of prejudice and hatred and instill in its place the belief in the necessity of communication. Unfortunately, antagonism exists in all communities; an effective response must begin with communication of the truth of our common humanity. Those who learn to believe in the dialogue of the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts cannot be susceptible to aggressive radical principles.  We at ICEA have found a way to fundamentally add to our education system so that we can inform children to develop benevolence early on in order to create a healthier society. At the ARK in Berea, Global Home of the Environmental Art Movement, ICEA has boldly taken the lead in this direction for individuals to find inner peace with themselves and in the World through the building of the Coast-to-Coast National Great American Peace Trail.

Provenance of the WCPM sculpture places its conception at Germany's World's Fair, EXPO 2000's 'Culture on the Move' segment.  American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca addressed the 140 Nation Assembly of the concept for a permanent universal symbol of renewal and peace on earth for all living inhabitants through the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts'. This Symbol of Living Peace was the subject sculpture.  This project was initiated in cooperation with the United Nations 2000 Culture of Peace Program and 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. http://theicea.com/page5

The Worlds Children Peace Monument

The Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) is located at Coe Lake Park in Berea, Ohio.   An original idea conceived during EXPO 2000, the Worlds Fair held in Hannover, Germany. It was designed and built by Environmental Artist 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 project is to encourage positive community participation through the establishment of site-specific works of public art, through cultural education and entrepreneurial training to children around the World.

As new WCPM Stones are added to gardens around the world, it will, in time, become the largest monument dedicated to Global Peace. The sculpture serves as a milestone for the 'Theory of Iceality' of the Environmental Art Movement indigenous to the Great Cleveland Area, that is to "Assist in understanding of the relationship between Humans and their Environment through the Arts ultimately promoting a sustainable global Culture of Peace". The WCPM was officially inaugurated in 2003 at the 3rd World Peace Conference held in Verbania, Italy by American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca where they received an Italian Medal of Arts. They were also recognized by the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland and in 2006 appointed Universal Peace Ambassadors. The WCPM is organized in support of the UN Decade of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World and the UN Millennium Development Goals.

The Great American Peace Trail (GAPT) is the national peace trail formed by select Peace Stone sculptures located in municipal parks from coast-to-coast. Leaving a Trail of Peace and Goodwill, neighborhood beautification, civic and  cultural development and arts training for all Ages for all Time.

Painting for peace: Boston children turn to art to heal

"Art has the ability to inspire and to speak to people’s emotions and senses in a way that nothing else can,” said artist Favianna Rodriguez. The emotion in this case is hope — hope for the more than 2 million children, students and young people who were brought here as children and who dream of belonging to the only country they call home.

My question is whether the stone will be sourced locally, and is so (or not!) how is it obtained, designed and transported? As you must know, there are hurdles to placing even art into public places. peace

Social awareness is the active process of seeking out information about what is happening in the communities around you. A greater awareness of social norms and problems leads to better understanding and better solutions.

Por lo tanto, la educación ambiental es un "proceso continuo en el cual los individuos y la colectividad toman conciencia de su medio y adquieren los valores, las competencias y la voluntad para hacerlos capaces de actuar en la resolución de los problemas actuales y futuros del medio ambiente."
La ciencia detrás de Artes Ambientales es "Teoría de las Artes Iceality ambientales". El estudio práctico sobre la estética de la relación entre el hombre y su entorno a través de las Artes y la Cultura, en última instancia, promover una cultura mundial sostenible eficaz de la paz entre todos los seres vivos ~

Despite safety emphasis, school shootings continue
ASHINGTON (AP) — There's been no real reduction in the number of U.S. school shootings despite increased security put in place after the rampage at Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012.

In Pennsylvania and New Mexico, Colorado and Tennessee, and elsewhere, gunfire has echoed through school hallways, and killed students or their teachers in some cases. "Lockdown" is now part of the school vocabulary.

An Associated Press analysis finds that there have been at least 11 school shootings this 2014 academic year alone, in addition to other cases of gun violence, in school parking lots and elsewhere on campus, when classes were not in session.
