“Celebrate your path to Peace”


There is an incredible energy in the school of Colégio Estadual Herbert De Souza em São José dos Pinhais, or SJP for short, the municipality next to Curitiba in the South of Brazil. Today, Wednesday, is the halfway point of the Semana da Paz (Week of Peace) and the feedback the #CheerForPeace team is getting from both staff and students is VERY positive. Today students have been painting a 20metre art mural celebrating all the themes and events of the week: Capoiera, theatre, clowns, video games, coding and programming, futPar (participative football), graffiti, painting, food garden, wormery, recycling, bike power, school radio…

The Janela do Futuro (window of the future) is nearly full with the ideas of students, this is a 3 metre wall in the canteen asking people to make suggestions about whatever problems might exist in the school and solutions to these problems. It also seeks whatever ideas people have in general, no matter how crazy they seem (a skate park for the school, a plastic free school, no uniform days….)

As one day leads into another, there are more and more kids running around with the white #CheerForPeace t shirts. These are the new group of students who have become “Peace Ambassadors”, this means that they have gone from just being normal students enjoying the events to activists who wish to work for peace. After the week they will be the ones the team will work with to carry on the work, during the week they help out in all the little jobs that have to be done like taking care of the Janela, registering fellow students for the events of the day and assisting the workshop leaders as the different events unfold.

One group doing great work deserve a very special mention;  Rádio Geração Z (Generation Z radio). They have been making interviews with people and every day, with the help of their teacher Lizandro, they braodcast a 20 minute live radio show which goes out over the speakers in the school. They also post videos or audio files to their facebook page, but they hope that after the week they can start to make podcasts to help facilitate this very special dialogue which is slowly unfolding.

Nobody knows where this week will lead to, but all here agree something very special is happening. Wouldnt it be great if every school in Brazil was buzzing with this kind of energy, creativity, fun and passion…

#CheerForPeaceEXPO videos

For 3 weeks the #CheerForPeaceEXPO happened at IBQP, the iCities node of Curitba, Brazil. During the first 2 weeks we created a dynamic side to the expo, building on the “windows of the future” section that was created, exploring problems and solutions to the things we investigated over the previous few months. What followed was a series of discussions with many people in many parts of the world, in different languages. The discussions happened both in our expo space / studio and also over skype. We broadcast the discussions live over the net TV channel we created on Bambuser. Later all the videos were uploaded to our CheerForPeace youtube channel and now here are all the videos together. The broadcast recordings happened over 9 days, by the end of day 7 we hit 2oo views on our channel, by the end of friday 15th, day 10 we were over 600.
