(3) Outline of Project

●For the ceremony, eight promising students who are fully aware of environmental preservation issues and have a strong intention to be international leaders in the future will be chosen by the committee. They will deliver a speech on world peace and environmental protection in English.

●In the course of preparation, student members will send letters to the appropriate official organization or Ministry, requesting them to arrange for suitable pebbles to be brought from their respective countries as well as for a short statement on world peace and environment protection from the President or the Prime Minister to be given, if possible. The letters also request Ambassadors to Geneva to participate in the ceremony.

●At the end of the ceremony, Ambassadors in Geneva will put the pebbles into “The Blue Star of Life” vase, wishing for global peace and a better environment. It is a symbolic and significant event, where students or future leaders collaborate with Ambassadors or the current international leaders to renew vows and pledges to seek peace and protect environment. We hope that their commitment will have an impact on the people in the world to make a difference.
