'The Science Behind Peace and Global Harmony'THEORY OF ICEALITY ON ENVIRONMENTAL ARTS
*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 of Peace on Earth in over 2000 Years.
At the ARK in Berea, global home of the environmental arts movement, David Jakupca, states that, "The special Theory of Iceality belongs to a class of "principle-theories". As such it employs an analytic method. This means that the three elements which comprise this theory, Humanitarian, Environmental, Arts and Culture, are not based on hypothesis but on empirical discovery. The empirical discovery leads to understanding the general characteristics of natural processes".
"Throughout history, various movements in Art have taken place: Impressionism, Modernism, Abstract Art, Photo-Realists to name a few. Recently Pop Art debuted in the 1960’s and now at the beginning of the 21st Century, socially aware artists with a vision are making a difference in Art History. The pioneer artist of this new genre of art, David Jakupca, calls this type of expression the "Environmental Art Movement". He is also the founder of the: International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA)which is exclusively devoted to environmental and humanitarian concerns facing Mankind in the 21st Century".

The ABC's of Environmental Arts Education using the Iceality Methodology
as a Educational Tool for Social Change
The Revolutionary Educational Idea from the Good People at the
International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA)
"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 cross-cultural awareness in order to attain the common goal of sharing peace and diversity with their neighbors. The peace projects, utilizing the principles of the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts' 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." American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca.
The "Theory on Iceality on Environmental Arts" used in the building of the “Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) is a learning by association formula that builds a concept within and makes the whole greater than the sum of its parts. A form of synergy called the Iceality Method whereby the interaction of multiple elements ( Peace Stones) work together in a culture of peace structured to reproduce in a sustainable effect, in this case the WCPM, that is superior than the sum of their individual Stones. The learning occurs as the Worlds Children using the Iceality Methodology, take part in the education, personal development, schooling and training adding new Peace Stones from the Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) to municipal parks. It is a product of nature, goal-oriented and aided by motivation by concerned personnel.
|Training the Worlds Children to be Future Peace Stewards|
In essence, the WCPM is a system of interrelated international components working together with a common objective: Creating a Sustainable Global Culture of Peace for All Living Things!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 Iceality Methodology is a goal-directed type of learning principle for the Worlds Children based on the assumption that ideas and experiences reinforce one another and can be linked to enhance the innate holistic learning process. It refers to the capability of people to improve their communities through their own instinctive creativeness by following the same type of positive hands on action inherent in the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts that was used to create the original model at Expo 2000 in Hannover, Germany. At Germany's World's Fair, EXPO 2000's 'Culture on the Move' segment, lead by American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca and the 140 Nation Assembly, the concept of a permanent universal symbol of renewal and peace on earth for all living inhabitants through the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts' was conceived. This Universal Symbol of Living Peace was the WCPM 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. The Iceality Methodology used to expand the WCPM globally has its origins in Nature itself, utilizing the basic fact that All Living things have an inherent need to grow and prosper. Like a parent plant grows and sprouts seeds to propagate and grow, the WCPM uses WCPM Peace Stones to grow and send their messages of Peace. Their increased productivity in creativity is achieved through practice, self-perfection, and individual innovations from the original environmental artwork or idea. Research has proven that this repetitive type of learning process is based on the principle that related different ideas and experiences reinforce one another and can be linked together and to enhance the whole learning process. Through this collaborative creative process, individuals and communities are not simply beneficiaries of public art or recipients of treatment, but co-creators of the work as they learn new skills, gain knowledge among peers and community members, and play an active role in improving their physical community neighborhood. The Iceality Methodology is now the main process that organizations are utilizing to promote the United Nations Culture of Peace initiative.
'ICEALITY METHOGOLGY' on FACEBOOK:
Utilizing the 1987 "Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts", the 'Iceality Methodology' was developed at EXPO2000 the Worlds Fair held in Hanover Germany to promote the building of the Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) and the Great American Peace Trail.
Originally designed for MYSPACE, The 'Iceality Methodology' has been 'borrowed' as a tool for social change by virtually every social activist organization and group on Facebook and is used by over 1 Billion people in a still growing audience.
Who knew how much this relatively modest team from ICEA headquarters in Cleveland would go on to revolutionize the way Non-Profits on Facebook use the internet to help All the Worlds Children?

As we approach the International Peace Day, September 21st 2013 there is an exponential growth in awareness and participation this year. This can be seen on facebook, twitter, and on any number of thousands of websites including: internationaldayofpeace.org, peacedaytv.org, peacecast.tv, pathwaystopeace.org, wetheworld.org, uri.org, perc4peace.org, worldpeaceprayersociety.org, peaceoneday.org, pfc.org, peacecraneproject.org . This year, more than a billion people around the world will be aware of #PeaceDay. With so many individuals and organizations working together to educate, collaborate and build #peace, is there any limit to what we can do? #WorldsChildren.
Other examples of the Iceality Methodology in Greater Cleveland are listed in the reference section below.
- It is a way to meet other people and develop new friendships
- It gives the Families a chance to work closely together and develop stronger ties
- It helps our children to develop and refine their business skills
- It provides people the flexibility to organize and manage their time as they wish
- It gives opportunities to those Family members who might not otherwise have them to succeed on their own.

So, even if the Worlds Children are not artistic prodigies, those hours spent practicing is not a total waste. “This Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts suggests the importance of a liberal education for today’s Worlds Children and prepares them for a healthy dynamic lifestyle for their tomorrow”. The fact is, that training in the Iceality Methodology in childhood affects their everyday life as older adults, and in our study this is especially true as the neural timing of the brain is the first to go in the aging adult,” said Ambassador Renate.

Successful creative placemaking…
…places artists and art at the center of planning, execution and activity.
…leverages the creative potential already present in a place. All places have creative potential just waiting to bubble up. Even while drawing on resources from beyond the community, leveraging local artistic and organizational talent and assets increases the value in a community and the commitment to it, while nurturing an enduring sense of place.
…creates opportunities for people of all income levels and backgrounds to thrive in place. As its value increases, a place that is intentionally inclusive and connected is more likely to spur economic opportunity and allow people to succeed where they are.
…supports economic diversity in the community, providing multiple points of entry and interaction for people of all incomes. The more economically integrated a community is, the more access to opportunity exists for all.…creates interesting places that capitalize on distinctiveness. A creative approach improves the aesthetics of a place, whether it is the look, feel, sound or even smell. The difference sets that place apart as more interesting than others. A place that expresses its distinctiveness and resists commodification and sameness is more likely to have long-term appeal.
…creates a place where people want to go and linger. Successful places attract people beyond those required to be there. People lingering is an investment of time in a place and is apt to lead to additional investments.
…contributes to a mix of uses and people that makes places more diverse, more interesting and more active, thus making spontaneous interaction more likely. Intensifying and mixing activities creates the promise that visitors can stumble onto the fun, mingle with other people, or happen upon opportunity.
…fosters connections among people and across cultures. The relationships built among diverse groups of people create safer, more open places that create more opportunity and foster a sense that everyone is welcome.
…is always presenting itself to the public and encouraging pedestrian activity. Whether open or closed, a place that is a consistently interesting and active presence to the street promotes more pedestrian activity and creates the public perception that the place is safer and more animated. More pedestrians mean more prospective customers on the street to support more small businesses.
…creates a place where business wants to be. As a place becomes more active, commerce is likely to respond, thus giving people even more reasons to be there.
…convinces people that a place can have a different and better future.
The 'People Not Mascots' Logo is meant to be a Native American protest caricature of the racists Chief Wahoo logo of the Cleveland Indians Baseball team. It was originally painted in 1992 by David Jakupca at the historic ARK in Berea for the Committee of 500 Years of Dignity and Resistance along with the Lake Erie Native American Council (LENAC) incorporating elements of the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts.
The 'People not Mascots' Logo has drawn criticism from some sportswriters, fans and local businessmen, but received immediate acceptance among humanitarian, religious groups and Native Americans. The Cleveland 'People not Mascots' Logo gained international popular attention when it was it exhibited by ICEA at the 1993 United Nations World Conference on Human Rights held in Vienna, Austria.
The Cleveland 'People not Mascots' Logo and has become one of the most recognized anti-racists logo in existence CHANGING FOREVER THE WAY PEOPLE VIEW THE WORLD'S TRILLION DOLLAR SPORTS INDUSTRIES!
It also caused repercussions for the groups connected with using the logo in protest demonstrations and this has been documented in the INTERNECINE MATRIX which Cleveland City Council needs to address before The 2016 Republican Convention convenes in Cleveland.
