Youth Network and Young Leaders
The future at once holds great peril and great promise.
In the face of complex, global challenges to peace, justice, and ecological integrity, youth are organizing, training, and working to ensure a sustainable future. Youth are raising their voices and actively co-constructing a better future, working to resolve critical issues that affect them more than any other group of people on the planet.
The Earth Charter Initiative counts on a diverse, interactive, global youth network representing over 198 countries from around the world to promote and implement the Earth Charter locally and globally. Those active in the Youth Network have embraced and integrated the Earth Charter into their studies, work, and daily lives.
Recognizing the power and importance of youth in building a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world, ECI offers the Earth Charter as a tool and guide for youth as they build a more peaceful, just, and sustainable future. Youth can further develop their capacity and increase their impact as leaders through engaging with the Earth Charter.
