What will YOU do for Peace? For Jovial Concepts, Peace is about having a safe place to sleep without fear of violence or weather, having adequate healthy food for your family, having the ability to provide for those you care about, having access to education, fair public media, health care, clean water, and most importantly having access to all basic human needs in a way that is sustainable from one generation to the next.
To do this alone would be impossible, Jovial Concepts has designed several different programs to engage communities in Colorado and globally in examining their community, educating residents, and creatively and actively problem solving. In 2013 Jovial Concepts awarded $5,000 in project funding to the best entry in our Peace Initiative contest.This year, we are expanding our contest to include Elementary, Middle, and High School submissions!
Through submitting a project to Jovial Concepts students will look at their community, learn about current social and economic problems, and come up with creative solutions. The Peace Initiative Contest process gives youth much needed experience with budgeting, planning, organizing, and application skills that will be useful for the rest of their life. Their projects will be a practical addition to college and job applications, as well as useful insight for schools and employers into the community mindfulness of Colorado youth.
