Gazing at the flame far away, with people miles away
EARTH LIGHT PROJECT MOVEMENT
Earth Light Project aims to create a symbol
of humanity confronting the world’s division.
June 2021, in Japan,
we will launch a candle and an igniter
to the stratosphere using a “Space Balloon”.
Imagine a single flame lighting
in front of the Earth and the space.
Now imagine, sharing the moment of the flame lighting up,
with people around the world
who share their hopes to understand one another beyond our differences.
Our prayer is to share this moment with you,
and with the rest of the world.
Watch live: launching and igniting the “Earth Light”
Imagine a moment, where people from all around the world share the same view and feeling.
A moment shared regardless of gender, age, language, ethnicity, race of nationality.
Earth Light Project will broadcast a livestream to reconnect the world in 2021.
Event schedule may change due to weather concerns.
We will be updating information via SNS and email.
Watching the candle light glow in front of the Earth, and sharing the moment with someone on the other side of the planet. The experience would remind us to reunite as one species, as we did in the Olympics and Paralympic Games.
The light up will be done by sending the ignition equipment to outer space on a balloon.
We will be live streaming the launch and ignition through YouTube Live, to share the moment with the supporters and participants around the globe.
Event - 3 Steps -
“Light our Candles, Connect your Hopes”
Creating the “Earth Light Candle” by collecting candles from all around the world
A live stream will be taking place via ZOOM, where youth from all around the world will participate with their candles lights.
With John Lennon’s “Imagine” as the theme song, participants will gather and share their thoughts and hopes and prayers towards resolving division.
The purpose of the event will be to connect the world by igniting a candle, and also to create the “Earth Light Candle,” a candle made by melting and combining candles collected from around the world. The “Earth Light Candle” will then be launched to the stratosphere to create the movement Finale.

“A Challenge to Connect the World With a Single Flame”
The Olympic Torch formerly was passed around the world to spread the “Festival of Peace” across countries. Today, our torch does not travel around the world.
We, the Earth Light Project, hope to regain the torch relay that travels across borders, with your help.
The image of our “Earth Light” will travel and ignite the hopes towards peace.
Details will be sent to participants of Earth Light Project Events in April and May.
