Gruppo Alcuni Makes Peace Project Available for Free


Gruppo Alcuni has made its Cartoons for Peace project available at no cost for any TV channel interested in airing it.

“We believe this animated content is still extremely relevant because it reflects the hopes of thousands of children around the world and that hasn’t changed with time,” said producer Francesco Manfio. “In exchange, we’d ask the networks to give a free contribution for children in the Ukraine or in any war zone, since children are the first victims of war.”

The miniseries, developed with UNESCO’s Associated Schools Network and RAI, was created after the UN General Assembly declared the first decade of the 21st century the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World. More than 1,000 storyboards were created on the theme of peace by school children all over the globe in countries such as Ecuador, Egypt, Indonesia, Lebanon, Mexico, the Philippines, Qatar and Uganda.
