The Earth Charter is an international agreement incorporating the following principles: respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice and a culture of peace. It seeks to inspire a sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility for the well being of the human family and the larger living world and is not aligned with or owned by a particular political party, religion or socio-economic group. The major consideration is quality of life for all.
The Summit is presented by the Congregation of the Humility of Mary whose mission statement reads, "We commit ourselves to work for justice within the human family and to care for the earth itself."
Thank you for your consideration and I hope to see you at the summit on October 11th. Feel free to call or email if you have questions.
