How did the “Peace by Piece” Project foster the development of 3 core qualities necessary for “GLOBAL BRIDGE LEADERS”?

1. Communication: Developed through publicizing the movie and the contest to a wider public.

2. Action: Countries held screening events that, not only members of APCC family but also people from all over the world participated actively in the art contest with wonderful creations promoting OMOIYARI spirit.

3. REspect: This art contest helped participants to have a better understanding of what OMOIYARI means and to be open to new ideas.

Feedback from participants:

“Little Deeds of love makes this earth happy like a heaven above.”

The movie has a very impressive message that “Never loose hope”.

Midori's Flying Goldfish is a movie with a message of Peace and coexistence and had good impact on the innocent minds of students towards global peace.

It’s so AWESOME! I can feel the ‘Omoiyari Sprit’ deeply from it. No matter how the cultures, countries and languages are different, they are the colours of the world.

I like the movie, it’s special effects and it’s concept of peace and friendship.
