“Earth Charter and Education” in Granada, Spain


The International Gathering “Earth Charter and Education” will take place at the Faculty of Education of the Cartuja campus of the University of Granada on April 1 and 2, 2011.  This gathering is intended for students, professors and other professionals in education, whether formal or non-formal, who are interested in putting into practice the Earth Charter. 

The objectives of the meeting are as follows:

  • Know how to use the Earth Charter in educational programs, innovation projects, different experiences, and publications for different educational levels. Carry out workshops with the Earth Charter values.
  • Meet and exchange opinions and experiences, and promote joint projects and other actions that will allow the creation of an open and flexible network of people working internally in a collaborative manner. 
  • Create a virtual space through the Internet, as an external expression of such a network, to post reports on experiences, projects, practices, publications, courses, news, exchanges, trips, etc. that will give us the opportunity to work as a large group with a single vision: the Earth Charter values.
  • Get sensitized to the vision of Mother Earth and spirituality from indigenous peoples.
