chileThe Instituto de Ecología Política (Institute for Political Ecology) has supported the Earth Charter for many years with different educational activities and is presently an EC Affiliate in this country. In July 2002, the Institute for Political Ecology organized an event to launch the Earth Charter and raise awareness about it. Over 150 participants attended the event; among them were political authorities, ecological organizations, NGOs, and students.

This institute continuously holds meetings with Government representatives to present the Earth Charter, with the aim to reach an endorsement from the Parliament and the Ministry of Environment.
