Earth Charter International served as a Gold Sponsor at the Coastal Earth Day Event in Darien, Georgia, USA, on Friday, April 21, 2023

This dynamic forum, held in the city of Darien, Georgia, USA, was hosted by the state of Georgia Public Service Commission and featured 30 experts from the sustainability, energy, education, and environmental sectors. Topics included solar power, recycling, renewable natural gas, coastal management, values-based education and sustainable development and carbon-free nuclear energy. The day was launched with a celebration and planting of nine (9) live oak trees at the Darien Primary School. Following, a series of 48 presentations were delivered, nonstop, throughout the day at the Oaks on the River waterfront venue. The atmosphere was exciting as each speaker was interviewed regarding their personal and institutional commitment to sustainability and preservation of the planet.

At the end of the summit, a panel of judges selected winners of sustainability awards for organizations throughout the state of Georgia. After the conclusion of the conference, a “low country boil” feast was offered for all participants and guests.

Attendees from Earth Charter International (ECI) included Michael J. Bracken, Board Chairman, Dr. Chris Beehner, Partnership & Development Officer at ECI, Christiane Head and Corene Beehner. Skylar Ozanne and Joseph Ramsey from Medcom Benefit Solutions, an ECI Partner, were also in attendance.
