The Earth Charter is an ethical framework for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society in the 21st century. It seeks to inspire in all people a new sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility for the well-being of the whole human family, the greater community of life, and future generations. The Earth Charter Initiative is a global movement of organizations and individuals that embrace the Earth Charter and use it to guide the transition towards a more sustainable world. The Earth Charter Center for Education for Sustainable Development located at the University for Peace in El Rodeo, Costa Rica offers courses that build the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values needed to shape a sustainable future. Explore how to use the Earth Charter and apply its principles at home, work, and in your local community.
