PPOE has a successful history of cultural peace initiatives in Palestine and the Middle East. On November 25th 2011, PPOE produced an aerial picture which was taken of nearly 1000 Palestinian refuge children forming the image of the Picasso Peace Dove and spelling out the words “Love All” plus the word for “love’ in Arabic just at the base of the Mount of Temptation in Jericho. Steve Robertson, CEO of Project Peace on Earth (PPOE) and its team, led by international aerial artist John Quigley and United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) produced the inspirational event.  The Picasso Dove and Love All image was filmed and shot aerially to send out a message of love and hope to children and adults worldwide.

In September of 2012 the UN announced that the Picasso Peace Dove and Love All image was selected as one of 49 most iconic images in the history of the UN out of some 800,000 photographs.

The efforts of the PPOE organization are part of larger Middle East and Worldwide five-step peace process initiative. Towards this end, the PPOE team organizes inspirational music concerts, medical missions, art, dance events, social media and engagement activities to: 1) Reduce social tensions and re-enforce the possibility of peaceful relations.  2) Increase listening skills towards the promotion of inner peace and perceptual changes.  3) Foster the process of forgiveness and humanize dialog towards compassion.  4) Inspire the recognition of shared interests and commonalities of goodness. 5)  Increase empathy and communication skills through “walk in the other person’s shoes” experiences that promote social, political, spiritual, peace breakthroughs and actions.
