   If you would like to submit a solution via text, please do so in our written solutions repository. The idea is to make some art, post it on a KidCast "Solution for A Better World" Web site you build (or on one of our servers) so we can present it and you, to an audience of concerned people helping to evolve our world from war to peace.

   Our broadcast schedule was posted the week before our video conference events on April 22 and May 1. Students in schools and homes around the world participated by making and sharing Earth Art and Heart.

We are seeking donations to underwrite this project. Please click the Donate link to contribute to creating positive media and experiences for young minds. Plant your seed for peace by hosting a node where you live or work. Just join our KidCast for Peace Mailing List to be updated.
