This site provides links to the Earth Charter in many different languages, as well as a brief history of the Charter since it was first drafted in 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. the site also has ample teaching resources, and blogs that provide updates on the Earth Charter in Action from all over the world. The Earth Charter Youth Initiative (ECYI) is a bold and dynamic action-oriented youth network that promotes the principles in the Earth Charter. The ECYI is founded on the conviction that that sustainable development is an ethical imperative and that urgent action is required to bring about a just, sustainable, and peaceful world. Joining this network is as easy as endorsing the Charter and completing a ECYI membership form, which can be found on the site.
