Earth Charter Youth Network Meeting in Amsterdam


We stand at a critical moment in Earth’s history, a time when humanity must choose its future. With these words the Earth Charter opens, a document celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. The task to choose our future isn’t light. Young people, leaders of the future and of the present, play a pivotal role in pulling it off.

That’s why the Earth Charter Youth Initiative was formed, a network inviting thinkers and doers. We welcome entrepreneurs, not necessarily making profit, but in any case adding value to their communities, themselves and the planet.

Are you with us? In that case, Earth Charter Netherlands, Move Your World, VU University Amsterdam, Plan Nederland and Worldconnectors invite you to come over and Mind Our Business. No membership is required, we welcome any individual or representative with ideas to share.
