An Earth Charter dialogue process in Nepal was initiated in 1999 under the auspices of the Center for Community Development and Environmental Research. The process culminated on December 29, with the organization of the National Consultation Workshop on the Earth Charter. In 2000, the Nepal Earth Society was created with the purpose of supporting the Earth Charter Initiative in Nepal. This group produced an Earth Charter brochure in both the Nepali and Newari languages. The Nepali version was disseminated among the Upper and Lower House Members of the Parliament.
Education programs for school children using the Charter as a tool have been planned in various parts of the Nepal Kingdom, with over 1,600 students already having benefited from these programs.
