Worlds Children Peace Monument
New website is up and running -- check back daily for updates!!!

 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 on Environmental Arts' 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 for all Living Things". The WCPM was officially inaugurated in 2005 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.

2009 Worlds Children Peace Child Representatives

 



ICEA has announced plans to have Peace Children as delegated representatives of the Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM). This will inspire students to develop their own insights into important themes like freedom, leadership and democracy. The WCPM Art can inspire otherwise disengaged students.

The WCPM Project was founded to promote leadership and activism in establishing a global culture of peace in among young children. The program is designed to strengthen, empower, and equip the worlds children as agents for change in their world.  By increasing the participation of children in social, political, and economic decision-making, WCPM seeks to question and redefine the nature of leadership and to promote perspectives and practices that are cooperative, accountable, ethical, and effective.

Throughout the program, the specific goals for the children are:

  • • To increase self-esteem
  • • To envision themselves as leaders now and in the future
  • • To understand and seek the right to peaceful equality
  • • To empower their decision-making ability non-violently
  • • To seek and value sustainable community action and involvement

Images of Peace 2007

l to r: Councilman Santiago, Renate,
David Jakupca, Sister Alicia Keyes

Cleveland City Councilman Joe Santiago honors American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca of the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) on the occasion of  celebrating Twenty Years of Community Service by installing the Santa Fe Peace Stone of the Worlds Children Peace Monument at the 2007 World Peace Conference.
The purpose of the worldwide movement, 2007 World Peace Conference - "Building a Culture of Peace" in Santa Fe, New Mexico, was to envision solution, use proactive public diplomacy to communicate more effectively with the rest of the world and build understanding for its values and policies and create a program for World Peace Between Nations and Nonviolence in Our Homes and Our Community.
With the support of New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and the leadership of  Ms. Louise Diamond, PhD,  Jody Williams, the winner of 1997 Nobel Peace Prize, and Arun Gandi, grandson of Mahatma Gandi, and a host of others, made  Santa Fe, New Mexico a focal point in America for international hope and peace-inspiring events during the time when wars are raging on almost every continent around the world. 
In conclusion of their 20th year of promoting ICEAlity, the understanding of the relationship between Humans and their Environment through the Arts", Universal Cultural Peace Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca dedicated to the Peace Garden at the Santa Fe Children's Museum, the Santa Fe Stone of the Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM). 
Designed at the ARK in Berea and built at Coe Lake Park in Berea, Ohio, the Worlds Children Peace Monument (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 European American community is very proud of ICEA achievements.  And I hope, our pride will show with our continuing support for this organization". states Zenon A. Domanski, Editor and Publisher of KOLORS Magazine.
At the formation of ICEA, Canadian activist Rick Coronado from Great Lakes United forecasted, " The International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) David and Renate Jakupca will act as our benchmark by which we can measure change and continuity in everything from the environment to relations between peoples through the Arts.  But more than that, it will remind us that we are not the first People, native and newcomers alike to face difficult choices in troubled times".  The winds of change blew as hard then as now.
When honestly told, the David and Renate story inspires without leading us into simpleminded platitudes.  History humanizes us by giving names, faces and texture to our physical and cultural landscapes.  Not only do the Jakupca exhibits entertain us, they serve as a map and guide for life on the road of a sustainable global Culture of Peace for all Living Things

ALABAMA PEACE STONE of the WCPM

The Little Zoo That Could
The zoo is in a very vulnerable location. It is located in a low-lying area just a mile from the Gulf of Mexico. After going through three complete hurricane evacuations in less than a year and being closed so long for storm repair, the decision has been made that it would be best to move the Zoo to higher ground.  Thanks to an extremely generous donation of 25 acres by Clyde Weir, who is the owner of Souvenir City, and his daughter Andrea Weir Franklin the zoo will be able to relocate to higher ground.  This new property is located just off Highway 59 on County Road 6 in Gulf Shores, about  two miles north of the Intercoastal Waterway Bridge.  
The zoo has begun the process of selecting an architect for the project and hopefully will begin actual construction of the new zoo early in 2007.
The Alabama Peace Stone of the WCPM will be
located in the new childrens part of the zoo.
Drop Off Reception:  3PM,  May 1st, 2008  at  Main Hall
