Reaffirm your commitment

Thank you for being part of the Earth Charter Movement!

We find ourselves in a time when we need to step up and choose to be better. Better in how we treat each other, better in how we treat our home, better in how we treat the Earth.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made us stop for a minute and re-evaluate the normal. More importantly, it showed us that we CAN stop and change. It showed us that there is space for a better normal, where we consume less, care more, and live better.

Now that we look to the future, we have an opportunity to commit to this “new normality” of a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world.

What are the local obstacles to cultivating respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace?

We need to recognize the challenges that we currently face and commit to finding solutions. TOGETHER.

With your previous commitment, you embraced the Earth Charter vision – the fruit of a collective international effort to build the ethical foundation for an improved global society. A universal document, it is in itself the embodiment of the principles it presents and a motivator for personal and collective change.

To reach a new and better normality, we then need to inspire more people like you to turn conscience into action.

You have been applying the Earth Charter principles in your day to day life, at home, work, or in school.

Now, you can take action by building bridges of collaboration to implement both local and international initiatives. You can take action by inspiring others in your circle to also commit to the Earth Charter and take action too.

You can take action by collectively reaffirming our commitment to the Earth Charter vision.

“Let ours be a time remembered for the awakening of a new reverence for life, the firm resolve to achieve sustainability, the quickening of the struggle for justice and peace, and the joyful celebration of life” (The Way Forward, Earth Charter)

Thank you for reaffirming your commitment to paving a new and better path with the Earth Charter.

Thank your for being part of this Global Movement for Justice, Sustainability, and Peace!

We, the undersigned, embrace the vision articulated in the Earth Charter. We pledge to strive to turn this vision into reality by joining the global partnership for a just, sustainable, and peaceful world and by working actively together to implement the Earth Charter’s ethical ideals and principles in our daily lives and sphere of work and as citizens of both local communities and the Planet.”

We encourage you to share your commitment on your social media using the hashtags #mycommitment and #turningconscienceintoaction, and help us spread the word by sharing this message through your social media and message platforms:

“Hello (name of your friend).

The pandemic forced us to stop, to be locked down, but it has also given us the great opportunity of questioning how we want to continue. This is why, as the Earth Charter Movement we want to inspire you to join us in building a new normal, a new way forward. Today I want to ask you to join our commitment to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful future, by entering and signing your own commitment to acting for a better future.

With all my heart, THANK YOU! #mycommitment #turningconscienceintoaction”
