Press Release
for a 24 hour EARTH DAY, April 22, 1998, Global Kids Gathering

EARTH DAY, April 22, 1998 marks the sixth "KidCast For Peace" CU-SeeMe multicast and interactive global community forum, for kids of all ages (with a focus on K-12 and youth) to speak out for a better world. No matter what age you are, we encourage you to participate in at least one of the many ways we have set up to facilitate and record your expression.

The KidCast will have several "host" locations. "Broadcast Central," for KidCast number six is True Link Cyber City Maui, in Kahului, Hawaii. "KidCast For Peace; Solutions For A Better World" is made possible through the resources of Visionary Artists Resources Including Other Unique Services (V.A.R.I.O.U.S.) a not for profit community benefit association, and generous donations from corporate and private sectors.

Our goal is to give children of today (the leaders of tomorrow), a loud voice in shaping the world they will inherit. Please join us in many schedualed and spontaineous inter-activites featuring a CU-SeeMe videoconference in which kids will share art that expresses how to make this a happier, healthier, safer and more peaceful world.

Participation instructions can be found here. We encourage you to browse around Creativity Cafe; a "New School For the Next Millennium," using art and technology for a better world.
