KidCast for Peace; Solutions for a Better World #22

After a long haitus, we are seeking YOUR PARTICIPATION to help produce our Next KidCast for Peace TeleActivity on Monday, April 22, 2013. We are currently inviting new sponsors to support our broadcast and participants to cooperate!

When the time comes, I hope you will join us in Creativity Cafe's live, multi-node KidCast for Peace Teleactivity. Prizes will be awarded for best Peace Art and "tele-presence" in our Global PEACE PLACE AND ART PORTAL on Earth Day!

If you are an educator or represent an educational institution or university, please contact us for participation details. Art becomes a catalyst for group interaction, facilitating the expression of those wanting to share their vision for peace and to help make this a better world.   

Its' easier to transcend language barriers (and others), with the stroke of a brush and flash of a peace symbol and smile - as this page shows, which is why KidCast for Peace asks kids of all ages to share your art, heart and ideas to evolve a peace filled world. More information can be found in the links on the left!

Explore our Gallery of Solutions Documentation and this video to get a better idea of KidCasting™ and of Creativity Cafe™ Edutainment Venues.

This project has been serving kids of all ages since 1995. Creativity Cafe is working wiith synergetic souls and corporate alliances to continue growing KidCast for PEACE as a way to appreciate young people, their art and their ideas for bringing Peace to our Planet. Please join our network to facilite social change and the expression of those who will inherit the Earth.

UN LOGO

Kids from around the world, in schools, cybercafes, and at home are given an "Internet Channel" to voice their solutions for a better world. They are accepted as contributors to the evolution of life by the adults. Through KidCasting, kids are provoked by their teachers, parents and guardians, to consider solutions to personal, local and planetary problems, and to explore ideas about compassion and community. Because we seek their expression, the kids' self-esteem increases. Children learn valuable tools for community building and how to use computers for digital storytelling; a valuable job skill for the 21st Century (nurturing future Siggraphians).

During live interactions, children express their ideas and feelings overcoming obsticles of distance and language. They hold up their creations in front of the video camera, direct the public to their web site, and have conversations with each other and the public-at-large. This foundation of community thinking and education/use of digital storytelling tools stimulates an early desire to use computer graphic tools for communication, education and entertainment.

KidCast for Peace prepares them for our evolving digital world, yet stimulates (protects) their "humanness." In today's hectic world, physical gatherings and high-touch environments tend to be replaced by non-physical electronic interaction. Through KidCasting, children make friends with their "foreign" counterparts. KidCast exists to facilitate young peoples' discussion about how to overcome life's challenges. KidCast stimulates the parents to provide better role models and to accept and respect the consciousness of their offspring; our future world leaders.



Participate in Creativity Cafe's KidCast for Peace; Solutions for a Better World; honoring unity in diversity by opening a PEACE PORTAL each Earth Day. KidCast for Peace is produced by V.A.R.I.O.U.S. members and associates. We are giving young people a chance to shape their future world. It was born for the United Nations 50th anniversary in San Francisco in 1995, and has been produced each April 22 since then.

We invite YOU to participate on April 22, 2009 by joining in to share art and Ideas for how to make this a happier, healthier, safer and more peace filled world (focus on K12 kids and kids of ANY AGE)? Please join kids of all ages by just showing up in our video multicast or better, preparing art, media or digital storytelling in advance so we can link to it for display and discussion.

We are opening this PEACE PORTAL to help create a PLACE OF PEACE on the internet (and beyond); where we can meet face to face and discuss issues and events rapidly unfolding in our world. More importantly, we are giving teachers a chance to lead their students in having a say in the world they will inherit. We would love the hear their thoughts and see their art expressing and picturing peace. What do you have to share, and artistically offer suggesting what we might do as evolutionary agents, to make things better in the world our children will inherit?
