Maui Hawaii - February 22, 2000 - Children in classrooms from Hawaii to

"KidCast For Peace·; Solutions For a Better World" Internet multicast and
video conference. The purpose; to enable kids to suggest to the "adults"
how to heal the planet and its peoples. This award winning teleactivity
connects K-12 kids in schools, cyber cafes and homes around the world who
then share art, ideas and performances for a happy, healthy more peaceful
world. KidCast is sponsored by nonprofit Visionary
Artists Resources Including Other Unique Services (V.A.R.I.O.U.S. Media).
You can help give future leaders a voice in shaping their future, more
loving world. The group is seeking participants, sponsors and volunteers
locally and globally. Contact KidCast Coordinator; Peter H. Rosen for
details at (808) 875-4747, via email to: kidcast@creativity.net, or visit
KidCast Central.

Teachers are encouraged to assist children prepare by understanding
important communication techniques, build self-esteem through creative
expression in many forms, and how to feel good about contributing to the
world they will inherit. By having discussions about conflict resolution,
self-esteem, creative thinking and just how to be a loving person in what
can sometimes be a very hostile world, "KidCast For Peace" strives to
present a positive force for change. "We are blessed to have received so
much recognition and linking all over the Web. We are delighted to announce
participation by our new European sponsor; 'Loving World' in Germany,"
offers Mr. Rosen, founder/coordinator of the event and director of the
edutainment concept; Creativity Cafe®.

"KidCast For Peace" is a prototype experience planned for the
Cybertheater-Artists Resource Center and "New School for the Next
Millennium." The developing KidCast Network is a grass-roots effort.
V.A.R.I.O.U.S. is seeking inkind as well as financial sponsorship to enable
kids of all ages to make art and make a difference, after discussing peace
and ecology issues affecting them personally, their community and our
world. The project was founded for the Children's World Peace Festival in
1995. Featured at the prestigious SIGGRAPH'98 Computer Graphics Conference,
KidCast For Peace has received awards including the 1998 SIG/TEL Online
Learning Award and recognition from The Millennium Institute.

The end result; a "Gallery Of Solutions" carrying documentation from the
current and past events, many of which can be found in Creativity Cafe's
VRML (3-D) "EarthStation;" a repository for poems, Quicktime movies, Web
sites, images, animations, short stories, etc., created by KidCast
participants. While the focus is on K-12 kids, we encourage participation
by the child in everyone! Prizes for best entries will be awarded thanks to

V.A.R.I.O.U.S. organizers seek mainstream involvement for this Earth Day
"happening" focusing on solutions from the children's point of view. "We
are asking younger generations for their assistance to help us heal
ourselves and our world. We want to know what you think, and what steps we
should take to insure a more peaceful, unified and abundant global
community," says Rosen. Demonstrate your interest. Indicate your level of
participation from among the possibilities listed in KidCast Central.
This project has the support of many inkind sponsors including
Caligary trueSpace® and Global SchoolNet Foundation. Financial sponsors
make a big difference to enable excellence--donations are fully tax
deductible (see: http://creativity.net/various.html). This project is spreading
its wings, continuing to share the concern and love of our children
far and wide.
