The Urban Life and Environment Research Group of Simon Bolivar University has been very actively implementing different educational initiatives with the Earth Charter since 2012. In 2014, their activities included an Earth Charter workshop for community leaders in a Unit called “Towards a sustainability culture in businesses, working with the Earth Charter”. This Unit is part of a Certification Program on Sustainable Development for business entrepreneurs. They also include the Earth Charter in four graduate courses.
A student from the Sustainable Development Certification Program developed a research project called “Development of a country label strategy in Venezuela, under the framework of sustainable development and the Earth Charter”.
Another student from this University, María Elisa Febres, worked at the ECI Secretariat in 2013-14 to develop a database that correlated international legal instruments with the Earth Charter.
