CELEBRATION EARTH IS A LEAD EVENT OF THE CULTURE OF PEACE INITIATIVE

Celebration Earth is a year long festival for peace that welcomes global cooperation and participation and seeks to practice the ‘Peace Day, Every Day’ spirit envisioned by the 'Culture of Peace' UN designated Peace Messenger Initiative and embodied by the ‘International Day of Peace.’ Through a joyful series of events, we wish to gift the world a model of international peace and inner peace.

Celebration Earth empowers by providing a framework and connection that can be useful to individuals and the global community. By promoting the positive actions and events of our member organisations and individuals through our various networks and communities, Celebration Earth enables them to deliver their message to the world. Celebration Earth Is Free! We each create our own activity and call on others in the network for support. This support can come in many forms; participation, volunteering, promoting, you name it. Having a succesfull, group running on no money is empowering and enables people to see that all you need to succeed is the willpower. Each of us can make the world a better place - especially with a little help from some friends.

PEACE FOR THE EARTH - THEME FOR 2010

To all Celebration Earth members and thank you for your support that helped make last years launch such a wonderful success. Last year began with the 'Day The Earth Laughs' which was held to raise the spirit... through joy and laughter there flows positive energy and positive energy heals. This year we're directing this positive energy to the main theme of the 2010 Celebration Earth events, 'PEACE FOR THE EARTH'.

If we can make PEACE FOR THE EARTH, we will make PEACE FOR OURSELVES. Peace for the Earth is peace for something greater and other than ourselves. There is energy in humility. Let`s wish and create peace for our silent partner, our nurturer in life. PEACE FOR THE EARTH.

'PEACE FOR THE EARTH is PEACE FOR OURSELVES'

What does PEACE FOR THE EARTH mean to you?
How do you think we can best advance PEACE FOR THE EARTH?

Yuji Miyata, kicked off this years Celebration Earth activities with the continuation of his walk through Vietnam which began with a tree planting ceremony in Hanoi on the International Day of Peace and finished in Ho Chi Minh City with a tree planting on Earthday 2010.

Ultimately, after walking through many countries he will end up in London in time for the 2012 Olympic Games. His goal is to spread the message of peace through the preservation, protection and restoration of the earth. Any support has he makes his Celebration Earth Great Green Bridge Walk from Beijing to China will be greatly appreciated. Others are encouraged to participate in whatever way they can.

Last year Celebration Earth activities, were held throughout Japan and in Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam, USA, and South Africa. Thousands of trees were planted, hundred of talks given, at schools, universities, town halls and community centres and a LOT of media was generated, especially in North East Asia, thanks to the two major walks of Yuji Miyata, who walked through Korea, Okinawa, Taiwan and Vietnam, and Koichi Nakatani, the tree planting father and his family, who walked from Hokkaido in the north of Japan to Okinawa in the south.

Celebration Earth was co-founded by Paul Coleman and Kina Shoukichi, Japan's great musician and peace activist who is now a Senator for Okinawa in the Japanese Diet and brought into reality by a group of very committed people in Okinawa.
