From the Eagles College theater in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, and through a live broadcast, more than 13,000 activists witnessed the launch of the most recent musical project led by the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace.
"OSEMAP, for the harmony, well-being and happiness of the human family" is a project of worldwide importance that is part of the program The Power of Music for Peace and Happiness of the Integral Human Being; program that had its official launch in Venezuela in 2015 (see related note).
A social project that benefits the human family
“The world needs a change, and to make that change, we have music, which can bring tranquility and harmony to the heart; an excellent instrument which broadens the mind and allows people from all over the world to connect with each other, regardless of their differences”, Dr. William Soto Santiago.
With this and other reflections, Dr. William Soto, executive president of the GEAP, presented the conceptual map that is the foundation of his proposal to implement the power of music as a tool capable of generating a change in the paradigm of education of the XXI century (see complete lecture).
Also, Soto officially presented the Network of OSEMAP Orchestras and the practice of the new musical educational model, which will change the way schools teach, actively working for the health, wellbeing and harmony of the human family with action aimed at children, youths, adults and older adults that are in hospitals, homes and risk situations.
Music, a fundamental tool for an integral education
The director general of the GEAP, Mrs. Gabriela Lara, presented the objectives of this line of action that will be immediately put into practice in the five countries of the American continent and proposes, through the educational theory of Dr. Soto, impact the heart, spirit and body of the human being through the power of music.
“Since music is a message that directly reaches the soul or heart of the person, without the barrier of reasoning, we need to consciously use it in favor of mankind, and channel its use to help sow values and principles, as well as strengthening the harmony, wellbeing and health of the human being.”
