Organizations articulate creation of the Earth Charter Network

05/07/12 - In March, a meeting in the Instituto Democracia e Sustentabilidade IDS, in So Paulo, started the articulation of the Earth Charter Network in Brazil, which should be released during Rio+20. The network will gather organizations with the purpose of spreading the Earth Charter as an ethical reference of human actions and a guide to a paradigm change from anthropocentrism to biocentrism.

Patrcia Abuhab, president of Instituto Harmonia na Terra IHT, took part in the meeting which was attended by Mirian Vilela, Executive Director of Earth Charter International, and representatives of Instituto Paulo Freire, Itaipu Binacional, IDS, Vitae Civilis, Instituto Marina Silva, Umapaz, Instituto Henfil, Instituto Terra Azul, among others.

The involved organizations will perform actions in their regions on April 22nd, Earth Day, to celebrate the 12 years of the Earth Charter release, and to establish the proximity with Rio+20. In Rio+20, the Network should conduct three events with the themes: youth and the Earth Charter; release of the Earth Charter Network; and the Earth Charter and the International Scene, between 18th and 19th of June, in the Peoples Summit.
