The First Iberian Earth Charter Meeting for Sustainable Development to take place in Madrid – Spain/ Portugal

The “First Iberian Earth Charter Meeting for Sustainable Development”, coorganized by Fundación Valores and ASPEA (Portuguese Association of Environment Education), Earth Charter Affiliates in Spain in Portugal, will take place in Madrid on 17-18 November 2007. The idea emerged from the Third Extraordinary Congress of Projects and Utopias for a Better World, organized by Fundación Valores and inspired on the Earth Charter. This event was celebrated in Madrid last June.

 

The increasing number of ongoing Earth Charter and DESD projects and individual initiatives, as well as the interest shown during the abovementioned event for the creation of new proposals under the phrase “A New World is Possible”, made us think about and made possible this first peninsular event (Spain and Portugal together).

 

The invitation was circulated to Sustainable Development actors on education, society, environment and economy-business, either from a concrete experience or from an interest of building new initiatives within the frame of the Earth Charter for Sustainable Development.

 

The objective of the meeting is to share experiences, elaborate action plans and concretize the creation of a Network to work towards Sustainable Development called Earth Charter Iberian Network (La Red Ibérica de la Carta de la Tierra).

 

The subscription to the activity is free and can be formalized through the e-mail: infoATfundacionvaloresDOTes, by phone at +0054 91 872 55 96 or via fax at +0054 91 871 90 58.
