The Earth Charter in Action

The Earth Charter is an inspiring declaration of shared ethical principles. It arises from diverse sources-the wisdom of indigenous peoples, international law, contemporary science, and philosophical and faith traditions. It is an integrated vision of caring for all life, of universal human rights, of economic justice, and of the creation of a culture of peace. The Earth Charter in Action is a collection of over 70 thematic and descriptive essays inspired by Earth Charter, and demonstrating the rich diversity of issues. It points toward the many possibilities of future utilization; including its ability to bridge the Islamic and Christian worlds, and to work across the divide between the northern and southern atmospheres.
