Earth Charter

The Earth Charter is a bold, courageously optimistic vision towards a better world.

The Earth Charter serves as the ethical framework for the Cultural Innovations in Action. It is a global Declaration of interdependence that is the result of an unprecedented open drafting process involving thousands of people in 78 countries over the course of ten years.

It was launched at The Hague Peace Palace in 2000 where Jan Roberts was recognized as heading up the major grassroots effort in the US. Its sixteen principles for universal human rights, economic justice, respect for nature and a culture of peace are woven into the themes for the UNDAUNTED Changemakers’ Solutions. Jan founded Earth Charter U.S. (1999 to 2013) to inspire, educate and engage people around the country in initiatives based on the E.C. principles.
