I appreciate the warm welcome and the opportunity to interact with others committed to making the principles of the Earth Charter come alive in their work, communities, and lives.  I have been incorporating the EC in my university teaching for several years and was part of a community effort to establish Sustainable Idyllwild - a grassroots organization.  Sustainable Idyllwild's mission statement is 

...."to join our individual passions for environmental consciousness and social justice in cooperative local action to inspire and enable Idyllwild to reduce its footprint on the earth".  

We are a loosely organized group, which meets monthly, made up of community members with a wide range of interests, such as organic gardening, crafts made with recycled/natural materials, legal aspects of positive change, alternative fuels, connecting with other groups on the same path, to name a few.  Members take turns hosting the meetings, in order to bring focus to the area of their particular interest.  As we face changes in climate, resources, business opportunities and economics, Sustainable Idyllwild provides support for the sharing of ideas that can help us move forward in positive ways.  


As founder of a Masters degree program in Holistic and Integrative Education, I helped establish a working partnership with the University for Peace in Costa Rica.  UPeace is the only chartered UN university in the world.  The administrative headquarters for the International Earth Charter is located there.  Their Master's in Peace Education uses the Earth Charter as the foundations for its program.


I would love to have dialogue with others with interest in these areas.  I look forward t learning from each of you.
