Earth Charter International
Earth Charter International (ECI) is comprised of the ECI Secretariat and the ECI Council. The ECI Secretariat, which is based at the United Nations-mandated University for Peace in Costa Rica, endeavours to promote the mission, vision, strategies, and policies adopted by the ECI Council. It supports the work of the Council, assists with strategic planning, and coordinates many Earth Charter activities. The Secretariat guides and liaises with efforts to bring the Earth Charter to the fields of education, youth, business, and religion, manages communications with the larger Earth Charter network, and promotes the use of the Earth Charter as an international soft law document.
