Get Involved !

Mission: The mission of the Earth Charter Initiative is to promote the transition to sustainable ways of living and a global society founded on a shared ethical framework that includes respect and care for the community of life, ecological integrity, universal human rights, respect for diversity, economic justice, democracy, and a culture of peace.

Read the Charter

We stand at a critical moment in Earth’s history, a time when humanity must choose its future. As the world becomes increasingly interdependent and fragile, the future at once holds great peril and great promise. To move forward we must recognize that in the midst of a magnificent diversity of cultures and life forms we are one human family and one Earth community with a common destiny. We must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace. Towards this end, it is imperative that we, the peoples of Earth, declare our responsibility to one another, to the greater community of life, and to future generations.   VIDEO: Money and Life – Ecologize Growth http://www.karmatube.org/videos.php?id=2473

RESTORING THE EARTH – HOPE IN A CHANGING CLIMATE

climate restoration

Is it possible to rehabilitate large-scale damaged ecosystems, improve the lives of people trapped in poverty, and sequester carbon naturally? John D. Liu has proven that it is. His film, “Hope in a Changing Climate,” showcases approaches that have worked on the Loess Plateau in China, Ethiopia and Rwanda. Produced in collaboration with the Environmental Education Media Project (EEMP). http://sco.lt/7sy3CT

INDIGENOUS YASUNI ECUADOR

AND ANOTHER GREAT VIDEO TO WATCH;
“INTO THE HEART OF THE ECUADOR’S YASUNI PEOPLE” by Yale Environment 360

Few places on earth harbor as much biodiversity as the Yasuni Biosphere Reserve, a 6,500-square-mile territory in eastern Ecuador where the Amazon basin ascends into the Andes Mountains. But Yasuni also sits atop vast reserves of oil, and this rainforest wilderness, home to the indigenous Waorani people, faces intense development pressure.
In this Yale Environment 360 video, filmmaker Ryan Killackey travels into the heart of Yasuni with seven scientists and chronicles their work as they inventory the reserve’s remarkable birds, fish, animals, and plants. Through their work, the researchers hope to bolster international initiatives to preserve a large swath of this threatened land….

ONLY LOVE FOR MOTHER EARTH CAN SAVE US FROM CLIMATE CHANGE: SEN MASTER THICH NHAT HANH AND POPE FRANCIS SPEAK OUT  http://sco.lt/57JX0L

By   via Triple Pundit:

Will the children who inherit the Earth, and the potential issues that might still remain unresolved, feel the innate desire to preserve it? Or is our connection to nature being lost? This interesting and thought provoking concept was introduced to me by Kim Marshall McLean, a PhD classmate of mine at George Mason University and a NOAA Biologist. Kim is researching how exposure to the outdoors and the lessons learned in nature shape our understanding and even our intelligence. The sociological and environmental information gathered from this kind of research is far reaching and has implications for business as well. It is the hope that future leaders, especially those in business, will retain the close kinship with nature.

REWILD THE CHILD – OUR DISCONNECTION FROM NATURE IS KILLING US

THIS VIDEO was inspired on this manifesto by BOLIVIA

http://therightsofnature.org/universal-declaration/

Proclaimed in 2010 at the World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth (Cochabamba, Bolivia)


The Hopi Elders come forward with a message to the world in response to
the tsunami and earthquake in Japan. This is a historic moment for our
planet to hear them speak. They give humanity a simple message for our
future and how to overcome these difficult times. Sending Prayer to the
people of Japan and around the world.

Kikmongwi (Village Chief) Lee Wayne Lomayestewa of the Village of
Sungopavi in Hopi has given this important message.
