Youth

Have you been inspired to action by the Earth Charter? Do you implement the EC values in your life, family, school, or community? How has the Earth Charter affected you? Share your story to reach other youth that may be on the verge of diving in to a new network, lifestyle, and purpose.

ECI is looking for stories in the form of an essay, video, performance, art work, etc. that we may publish on the ECI website, social media, or even in future print publications.

To see some examples of inspiring youth stories, check out these impressive people in the Youth Network below.
