Peace and Cooperation in the media

Peace and Cooperation has a global mission. Since its nomination in 1986 as Peace Messenger by the United Nations, this Foundation has been presenting its school campaigns at the UN Headquarters in New York and holding press conferences with the support of the Spanish Permanent Mission. Since 2005, its prize-giving and award ceremonies have been held in several cities around the world. 

The "Road to..." began in 2011, which includes all activities and events related to the school campaign, simultaneously announcing the city where the end of the School Award will be held. As of right now, we have celebrated the "Road to Jakarta", "Road to Manila", "Road to Algiers", "Road to Hong Kong" and the latest campaign the "Road to Buenos Aires", which will finish in the capital of Argentina on November 22nd, 2016. The exact venue will be chosen during the meeting of the International Jury on October 24th, United Nations day. For 2017, our proposal is Vienna.

The universal work on the school campaigns has given us the possibility to meet many colleagues and friends in the search of shared values, as well as great moments of fraternity and forums of peace and love.

Every school award campaign intends to enlighten and suggest a collective reflection on some of the most diverse aspects of world problems.

In 2016, the campaign was centered on the figure of Don Quixote and the Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations.

Why don't we use our creativity to achieve a better world? That is the purpose and the big challenge for the schools and teachers around the world. In order to move forward in our pilgrimage we are calling to our aforementioned friends that we are proud to have found during our Roads to support us in continuing in and improving on our work.

INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL

Throught these years the creativity was the key to participate in our annual school campaign which is a school award. Schools or network schools joined to our school award.

Thus, came up the idea to establish an International Council which has received very possitive feedback. It is made up of very original initiatives: the  School of Creativity in Hong Kong directed by Mike Chan and its chain of atelier shops, the great network creativity  at CEDART in Mexico; KANOON in Iran. 

The members of the International Council are: Mike Chan, Zohreh Shamloofard, the head teacher of KANOON, Maria de Lourdes Dorado and Pilar María Moreno Jiménz both mexican educators, Ariel Arevalo, the rector of Carlos Steeb Institute from Buenos Aires, Claudia Beatriz Mosquera Guzmán the social promoter of the European School from Colombia, our old collaborator from Arequipa (Perú) Cecilia Medina-Villanueva, Rodel Ramos Rivera, master teacher of Quirino High School from Philippines, the Jacinto Benavente Institute from  Tetuan, Morocco, from Imphal, India the teacher Jelshyam Laishram, Jean Felix Ebo’o from Amis de la Planète du Cameroun and the teacher Alina Balan from the Technical School from Ploiesti, Romania. It is noteworthy the collaboration of Pilar Barroso, head teacher of CAUDE School from Majadahonda, Andrés Izquierdo, teacher from Isabel la Católica Institute from Madrid, Chelo Marazuela, teacher from Isidra de Guzmán School from Alcalá de Henares and Mercedes Roig, teacher of Fomento de Sansueña School from Saragossa.

On another note, the extraordinary contribution of the educator Elvira Sanchez-Igual from World Association of Early Childhood Educators, AMEI-WAECE deserves a special mention. She recently laid out the foundation for the latest school award campaigns and presented them at the United Nations in New York and Vienna with Joaquin Antuña. 

With our accumulated experience and enthusiasm during the last thirty years, Peace and Cooperation is thankful for the support of these knights of Creativity, it is impossible to list all of the contributors who participated in this launch of the World Alliance of Creativity.

In order to launch this initiative, we have nominated Noelia Silva as general secretary and a consultative committee with Georgia Hristea and Ester García and other colleagues.

We have signed a letter of understanding with Centro Riojano Madrid, cultural center,  to join forces to achieve UN goals. Galicia Digital is our media supporter and influential digital founder by Xulio Xiz, a mass media guru. We support the Global Partnership with Jeffy and Sonia Sachs to reach the 17 goals of SDG (Sustainable Development Goals).

The whole thing is a puzzle and a kaleidoscope of creativity that is in progress and integrates the School Award of Peace and Cooperation. The General Director of UNESCO Koichiro Matsurra in his message at the Forum of Barcelona in 2004 referred to Peace and Cooperation as, "an organization that has already achieved seniority in the tireless defense of peace and nonviolence, and one of its most exceptional initiatives through the Peace and Cooperation School Award has been to distinguish the efforts of those in the various parts of the world who implement the ideals of peace and respect for cultural diversity". These kind words oblige us to move forward with renewed determination and energy to spread and promote to all interested parties, creativity for peace and simultaneously serve as a forum for discussion and proposal.

Finally, we have to look towards the future and further the internationalization of Peace and Cooperation and prepare the Peace and Cooperation School Award for 2017: “Looking at the Stars - The Future of the World”.  We have signed a letter of understanding with UNOOSA to complete this ambitious project. There are two challenges, open ourselves to fraternity and rethink our world looking beyond the galaxies for understanding and peace, 2017 “The Year of the Stars”.

In 2018 The Road to Cyprus take us to this magic island to hand the 2018 Peace and Cooperation School Award “Galaxy of Peace - Space, Common Herigate of Humanity” organised by The Municipality of Pafos and the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus to the awardees of Bosnia-Herzegovina, China, Cyprus, Iran, Latvia, Mexico and Spain. The event to place at the Events Hall of Lyceum A’ Archbishop Makarios III Pafos, 5 december 2018.

For 2019 our School Campaign is For a Safer World - Join Forces with the CTBTO (Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty). The award ceremony will take place in Vienna with the CTBTO.
