In June 1999, an Earth Charter meeting was held to promote engagement of different Indonesian groups in the EC initiative. This meeting was facilitated by Ms. Erna Witoelar, Earth Charter Commissioner. She has engaged local NGOs in Indonesia, to help with the production of the Earth Charter Brochure in Indonesian, which was widely distributed in 2002. Many of these NGOs continue to be part of the EC Initiative exploring ways to use the Charter and promote it. A group of NGOs met in November 2007 with EC Secretariat staff in Jakarta, to further explore ways to disseminate the EC principles. They launched an Earth Charter network for Indonesia.
Earth Charter representatives were present at the WSSD PrepCom, in Bali (27 May to 7 June 2002). The EC Seeds of Change exhibition was displayed in Bali during the WSSD PrepCom. A wonderful Earth Charter cultural event took place on 2 June at the Candra Loka Amphitheatre in Nusa Dua in Bali with the participation of about 1,000 people. The event brought together Indonesian artists and singer san serves as a wonderful opportunity to promote the Earth Charter.
In 2005, the Center for Religious and Cross Cultural Studies at Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta held a seminar on world religions and ecology, where the Earth Charter was discussed.
