One Sky One World founder, Jane Parker-Ambrose, fl
- Oct. 12, 2012 -
On Sunday, September 23 and in respect for the United Nations International Day of Peace and the fall equinox, Denver kite-maker, Jane Parker-Ambrose, the founder of the Annual One Sky One World International Kite Fly for Peace, flew a kite for peace and was the first person recorded to ever fly a kite off of the Eiffel Tower. The kite, a tissue paper bee made by Antwerp, Belgian architect and kite-maker, Nest Lernout, has a frame which actually forms the international peace symbol. In France at the invitation of the Dieppe International Kite Festival on the Normandy Coast from September 8th through the 16th, Jane was honored at the festival for One Sky One World's work in the spirit of international friendship and protection of the planet's environment.
One Sky One World was inspired by Jane, a Colorado native who, in 1985, during a trip to the Soviet Union, presented an original "Peace Comet" kite to the Soviet Woman's Peace Committee in Moscow. This people-to-people gesture has inspired hundreds of thousands of people in more than 40 countries to participate every 2nd Sunday of every October in what has become "World Kite Day." The 27th Annual One Sky One World will take place October 14.
