Only lovely Luis, whom you see with the German flag was brave and said he wishes that there may be peace in the whole world. Then another teenager boy came up to say he wishes peace for nature as it is badly needed.

The peace pole was looked at and often photographed. I could explain all about IDP on stage and the speaker was also great to introduce us and the pp project in the stadium.

Enjoy the photos, especially all our FINALISTS 2013 on the screen! The screen with our paintings will be on many many shots.
