|The Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts|
"We now have the power to make this World a beautiful place one child at a time. Begin with your own child and watch how that child radiates towards the other Worlds children" says First Lady of Peace, Renate Jakupca.There is no cost to any city except to find a suitable public location for the Peace Stone Sculpture.

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://theicea.com/page22
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 hands on cross-cultural awareness in order to attain the common goal of sharing peace and diversity with their neighbors. The peace projects have direct community impact through neighborhood beautification, community and economic development while building self-esteem and hope in America. By rebuilding city parks in down town areas they form a new sustainable community place people can congregate to celebrate living each day. They will also 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. Unfortunately, antagonism exists in all communities; an effective response must begin with communication of the truth of our common humanity. Those who learn to believe in the dialogue of the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts cannot be susceptible to aggressive radical principles. We at ICEA have found a way to fundamentally add to our education system so that we can inform children to develop benevolence early on in order to create a healthier society. At the ARK in Berea, Global Home of the Environmental Art Movement, ICEA has boldly taken the lead in this direction for individuals to find inner peace with themselves and in the World through the building of the Coast-to-Coast National Great American Peace Trail.
Provenance of the WCPM sculpture places its conception at Germany's World's Fair, EXPO 2000's 'Culture on the Move' segment. American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca addressed the 140 Nation Assembly of the concept for a permanent universal symbol of renewal and peace on earth for all living inhabitants through the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts'. This Symbol of Living Peace was the subject 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. http://theicea.com/page5
Using the Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) in Cleveland to Empower Youth through Vocational Training by Building the National Coast-to-Coast “Great American Peace Trail”.
In 2017 dedication of CHARDON PEACE STONE at the New Chardon Living Memorial Park
The International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) is actively seeking an agreement to work together to improve access to and quality of vocational training for Cleveland’s youth. So many young people lack the skills and credentials they need to fill the many jobs that are available. Our partnership for the WCPM will train and create a skilled pool of educated workers that the private sector needs in Arts, Transportation, Environment, Marketing, Internet Technology the Business and Social Sciences. The skills imparted to them here improve their standard of living, This is also an important step towards ensuring long term economic growth and prosperity in North East Ohio as a 'Cultural Industry' to foster civic identity, cultivate jobs, and tourism, brand Ohio Environmental Arts as a Culture District in the Bioregion while developing a sustainable Global Culture of Peace for All Living Things
Under the agreement, the WCPM will provide vocational training to under-served youth, certifying the graduation of students over three years, with qualifying students receiving internationally recognized certificates. The WCPM will also provide placement services to the students for jobs in Cleveland and abroad.

As new WCPM Stones are added to city parks and 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' of the Environmental Art 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". The 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.
