The Jakupca's worked on the Science behind Peace and Global Harmony by creating and developing the "Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts". Created 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://theicea.com/page22

RECOGNITION SPEECH ON THE OCCASION OF AWARD OF HONORARY DOCTORATE DEGREES IN ENVIRONMENTAL ARTS AND PEACE SCIENCES (HONORIS CAUSA) TO DAVID AND RENATE JAKUPCA, CONFERRED BY THE INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR ENVIRONMENTAL ARTS (ICEA) IN A CEREMONY AT GERMAN CENTRAL PARK, PARMA OHIO, ON SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2016.
It is a privilege and honor for David and I to be here and for me to share my thoughts with you today as the recipient of this Honorary Doctorate from an Institution that plays such a big part in developing the potential and talent of All the Worlds Children living in so many different parts of the world.
Forty-six years ago when I received my High School Diploma from Parma High School, I never dreamt I would be standing here today robed in scarlet. In accepting this award, I pay tribute to the heroic, inspirational activists I have worked alongside, including activists in Africa, Egypt, China, Russia, Ukraine, Serbia, Croatia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Baluchistan, Pakistan, Nigeria, Iraq, Palestine and America.
Iceality is a value-driven force that helps individuals and communities define their identities and find spiritual, intellectual, emotional and moral fulfillment.
ICEA has created joint WCPM programs, thinking and working together with other enlightened Worlds Children in celebration of each others rich, multi-layered culture. These are programs are where the community, business and religious leaders and the government administration joined hands with the young and old, and each one involved contributing to the goal in whichever way they could. The goal is to impart young people with attaining an education, with technical skills which would raise their employability and contribution to a sustainable global society as social entrepreneurs.
May you all have the good fortune to know someone who will give you the motivation to experience the joy and satisfaction you receive from helping others.
With these thoughts in mind, I proudly but humbly stand before you to accept this Honorary Doctorate on Environmental Arts and Peace Sciences which you have so kindly bestowed upon me.
