Our Uniting Water Ceremony
All adults – Guests of Honor, lecturers, teachers, chaperons and volunteers were deeply moved when the children united their water and soil in Our Uniting Water and Soil Ceremony at the City Hall. The children brought a bowl of water and a handful of soil from a place they care for at home. One by one the children came up to the Crystal Bowl and shared their concern for their water and soil.
The children read their Water and Soil Declaration and handed over united water and soil to the Guests of Honor. The sound of a seashell led the way to the Children’s Meeting Place, the old oak tree at the Courtyard. The Guests of Honor moved around the tree and gave the united water and soil to the roots of the oak tree.
