The Earth Charter

The Earth Charter is an authoritative synthesis of values, principles, and aspirations that are widely shared by growing numbers of men and women in all regions of the world. The principles of the Earth Charter reflect extensive international consultations conducted over a period of many years. These principles are also based upon contemporary science, international law, and the insights of philosophy and religion. Successive drafts of the Earth Charter were circulated around the world for comment and debate by nongovernmental organizations, community groups, professional societies, and international experts in many fields.

The ethical vision presented in the Earth Charter recognizes that the pressing issues of our times are not isolated problems that can be addressed by piecemeal decision-making. Rather, they are interconnected phenomena demanding integrated solutions based upon a common ethical framework. The Earth Charter argues the need for sustainable paths of development that ensure ecological integrity together with social and economic justice. Sustainable living also means building a culture of tolerance, nonviolence, and peace. The Earth Charter provides a new framework for thinking about and addressing the critical challenges facing humanity in the decades ahead.
