"I can't think of anything more important than restoring and protecting the earth, and preserving biodiversity. It's the raison d'etre and joie de vivre all rolled into one! Thank you Earth Charter community for accepting me into your network. Peace from eVe!"
Susanne Johnson Ph.D
"Our common commitment to the Earth Charter is utterly important for the future flourishing of our Earth Home; without such a set of commitments, there will be no future for the "seventh generation." We're caught up into an escapable network of mutual interdependency and mutual responsibility. Join us!"
"I learned about the Earth Charter Initiative when I was attending Claremont School of Theology. I was thrilled to see this beautifully written document that can serve as a global ethic that takes Earth as the context for all that we struggle with and strive for in the 21st century.
As a Unitarian Universalist minister I have had opportunities to preach on the Earth Charter, my church has sponsored 2 Earth Charter Community Summits, and I have spoken on the Earth Charter at the local community college.
It is my deep desire that the Earth Charter become more widely known, applied, and influential."
Author of 'A Place Beyond Man" Carolyn "Cary" Neeper was raised on an apricot ranch in the east San Francisco Bay area, intensely aware of the disappearance of orchards and green hills under a carpet of houses. A Ph.D. graduate from the University of Wisconsin medical school, she is a student of no-growth economics and has taught sustainability and complexity at the University of New Mexico- Los Alamos.
"As we face the challenges of the 21st century, the Earth Charter gives us compelling guidance in how to make difficult choices and move toward a world of peaceful longevity, where integrity and respect for all living things is critical. As I complete the sequels to "A Place Beyond Man" for publication in the near future, Earth Charter is my inspiration for shaping hopeful visions of the future."
