01 概要 Introduction
We’ve long had a tradition and wisdom to prioritize ‘life & peace with all existence’ over other values here in East Asia. Even, at difficult and harsh times when those values were threatened by both of internal and external forces, many people put lots of effort to promote the ideas and also practice them in theirdaily living. Following the tradition, we’ve also been establishing the base camps for learning ideas of Life & Peace at many places in the region,especially, under the East Asian context. Nyuwa Nature School and Simple &Veggie Natural Farm, located in Chongming, Shanghai, want to join these initiatives with her partners in Korea and Japan. As an initial try, we arrangethe 1st ‘Life & Peace Summer Camp for youth’ in collaboration with Onbaeumtuo, from Pusan, Korea and also invite you to join us. From this opportunity, Chinese and Korean ( possibly Japanese and others, too) youth could get together to experience sustainable and creative life style, learn East Asian cultures and wisdom, exchange ideas and last but not least, make friends across culture and nationality.
02 女娲自然学校是？What is Nyuwa Nature School ?
Nyuwa Nature School has been initiated since summer time of 2015. A Korean life &peace activist who studied ICHING happened to meet a farmer in Chongming who practices natural farming to learn how human could peacefully coexist with nature and secure safe and healthy food for the next generations. They agreed to establish a nature school, in the farm, where children and youth appreciate the beauty and benefit of nature and also learn how to grow in it, with special emphasis on classic East Asian wisdom as represented by her name, Nyuwa, a mythical goddess of creation in China. She organized two rounds of summer camps for Chinese children and youth, respectively and continued monthly activities afterward. Now, she extends its regional coverage from China to Korea with her partners and hopefully, more in the future.

05 项目流程 Program Details
＊ 中方一天的迎客筹备活动的意义。 Why we have preliminary activity for welcoming friends from Korea ?
Chinese have a very long and concrete history of welcoming guest culture. It represents the spirit of generosity and openness of Chinese civilization which absorb any external elements and sinicize it, enabling her more and more affluent over times. So, why don’t let our children practice it by themselves. Korean students will also have preliminary gathering during June and will be prepared to respect the culture of host as well.
分组创意活动？Small Group Creative Activity ?
We are arranging 5 groups comprising 3~5 students in each. They have a common theme of cherishing, seeking, practicing and accomplishing Life&Peace sprit in East Asia. Each group has a specific way of expressing the theme including cooking, bamboo crafting, natural sculpture, wall painting and gardening. For example, cooking team will prepare snacks everyday and the final lunch as part of their exhibition/ presentation. They will be collecting the vegetables and herbs in the farm and also going to the county market to find necessary ingredients. They can utilize the skills and recipes from both countries and plus to describe how dishes would express what they would envisage about the Life&Peace@East Asia. We will have experienced instructors and assistants who could involve whenever students needs advice and support.
