Ecuador celebrated Earth Day with a great achievement

As part of Earth Day celebrations and taking into consideration the 10th anniversary since the launch of the Earth Charter, the people from Fundación Intiwasi invited María Pinar Merino, part of Fundación Valores in Spain, to deliver a conference/workshop on the Earth Charter for the guides of the three interactive museums of Quito Museums’ Foundation.  The event took place on April 25th where the EC video from Leonardo Boff was also shown.

Fundación Intiwasi reached an important agreement with this foundation to exhibit in the three museums these gigantic pictures of the Earth Charter principles.  This means approximately 300.000 people a year exposed to the Earth Charter. 

On April 26, María Pinar also gave a mini conference at the Church of the museum where all the personal from the Municipality of the Metropolitan District of Quito was invited.  We had the honor of counting with Dr. Jorge Alban, vice mayor of Quito, inaugurating this event.  Dr. Alban was the collaborator of Yolanda Kakabadse when the Earth Charter consultation process took place in Ecuador.
