On July 16th, IDEAS officially endorsed The Earth Charter, a universal expression of ethical principles to foster sustainability around the World.
As a supporter, we will be promoting the ethics and framework of the charter to our partners, affiliates and chapters; and provide educational opportunities about solutions for sustainability to the movement abroad.
“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.”
