Earth Charter

'The Earth Charter was initiated at the United Nations and was formally launched in 2000 by the Earth Charter Commission. The Charter is a declaration of the ethical principles for building a just, sustainable and peaceful global society in the 21st century and has ecological integrity as a major theme. It recognises the environmental destruction resulting from economic development and notes the interdependency of unequal enrichment, poverty, respect for human rights, democracy and peace. 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'

The United Nations Earth Charter has four basic principles:

  • Respect Earth and life in all its diversity.
  • Care for the community of life with understanding, compassion, and love.
  • Build democratic societies that are just, participatory, sustainable, and peaceful.
  • Secure Earth's bounty and beauty for present and future generations.

All such is represented in the decrees of the IHEU Declaration of 2002
