doesn't have to be a large spectacular event; just a few friends
flying together in the local park is fine - it's the sentiment
that counts..... It
matters not what you fly, or where you fly it - all that matters
is that you fly something, somewhere!

by Jane Parker-Ambrose.
Below is a short statement (taken from her site) providing
a basic insight into what OSOW is about.
is clear that life on the planet earth is at a crossroads. The
choice to turn from the path of self destruction from war, and
environmental abuse; to love of self, others, and the world
is before us. Increasing global awareness will lead to a widespread
belief that anything other than peace and mutual concern is
insensible, and will move us away from planetary cataclysm toward
a better future. One Sky One World festivals will be held annually
around the world to promote protection of the planet, peace,
friendship and understanding between all people. Beyond this,
One Sky One World does not endorse any ideology or political
purpose of One Sky One World, is simply to promote the concept
of global harmony and understanding between all peoples of the
world through an expression of the universality of kites and
the wind. Through sharing the wind, our world wide connection
with other flyers and all of nature is symbolically realized.
The great air ocean favors no dividing boundaries, ideologies,
and human conflict. It is much more the prerequisite for our
existence, a catalyst in the chemistry of life, supplying our
every breath. The International Kite Fly is an attempt to let
the wind lift our kites and our awareness so as to more fully
understand the necessity for peace."
