Earth Charter International collaborates with key youth organizations that actively promote the Earth Charter in their vision, values, and work. Would ECI and your organization mutually benefit from a partnership? Please consider the following check list:
- Does your organization or network have an international or global scope?
- Is your organization youth-oriented, or does it have a particular branch or department dedicated to youth?
- Is your organization’s mission and vision aligned with that of the Earth Charter?
- Has your organization endorsed the Earth Charter?
- Does your organization (want to) embrace and support the Earth Charter principles and values?
- Does your organization (want to) directly and explicitly use the EC in activities and programming?
A partnership amplifies the reach and effectiveness of both organizations to engage and train youth to be leaders in creating positive change locally and globally. For specific partnership benefits, consider the following:
- Acknowledgement of the partnership on ECI’s and Partner’s websites and appropriate written promotional materials
- Collaboration to identify specific strategies for incorporating the EC into Partner’s activities and programs
