Earth Charter - Turning Conscience Into Action

Updated: Jan 2

January 9, 2024, at 1 p.m. on Zoom - Deep Transformation Network is having its next DTN Monthly Live Event, offering the opportunity to engage with three luminaries associated with the Earth Charter: 

"Mary Evelyn Tucker, who was intimately involved with the genesis of the Earth Charter, is the founder and coordinator of Yale's Forum on Religion and Ecology. Along with John Grim, she was responsible for a 10-volume series published by Harvard on World Religions and Ecology. She has written and co-edited numerous other works on the intersection of faith traditions and ecological consciousness and is a co-creator of the Journey of the Universe project.

Mirian Vilela, executive director of Earth Charter International, has been working on the initiative since 1996, coordinating primarily with UNESCO and other UN agencies. Over the years she has led and facilitated numerous international workshops, courses and seminars on Earth Charter-related values and principles.

Sam Crowell, an Earth Charter Council member and leader in the dissemination of its principles for over 15 years, is professor emeritus of education at California State University San Bernardino and former director at the Center for Research in Integrative Learning and Teaching."

The Earth Charter is "a document with sixteen principles that drive a global movement towards a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world. To support the movement, Education Center offers courses, resource materials, and network opportunities to turn conscience into action."

"The Earth Charter is an ethical framework launched in The Hague in 2000 and endorsed by over six thousand organizations worldwide, including many governments. It was the product of a decade-long, worldwide cross-cultural conversation about common goals and shared values, emerging from the most open and participatory consultation process ever conducted in connection with an international document."

"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. It is a vision of hope and a call to action."

This event will be hosted by Jeremy Lent of Worldview Shift. RSVP to these monthly meetings now to get it on your calendar. You will be asked to join the Deep Transformation Network. Note: this gathering is normally on the first Tuesday of the month, but was changed in January because of the holiday.

A fifth annual Earth Charter Conference will take place from April 12-14, 2024 at Rollins College, Florida, "This 3-day conference builds on four previous Earth Charter Conferences focused on education for sustainability and global citizenship, and for planetary well-being. It will bring together a global diversity of educators, activists, and Earth Charter educators, affiliates, and partners, to share good practices and research."
