We welcome a new partnership between Earth Charter International and Creative Educators International Network (CEIN). With both organizations working in the field of education for peace and sustainability, and their dedication to communities and education for global citizenship, it’s not surprising this collaboration now becomes official.
Through the partnership, members of CEIN will have access to the Earth Charter materials, which they can use to implement value-creating education in their communities, businesses, schools and universities. CEIN will use the principles of the Earth Charter for planning and creating training activities for their members.
CEIN founder and President Stephanie Tansey* shared, “Educating and learning is to live in a space of reciprocal acceptance, where there is legitimate respect for oneself and others and a special deep gratitude, appreciation and respect for the environment. CEIN recognizes itself directly in the Earth Charter principles. By collaborating with Earth Charter International, our members have the opportunity to use the Earth Charter and its pedagogical and global perspective to further develop our focus on sustainability in local communities.”
“Partnering with CEIN, an organization committed to implementing value-creating education and the Earth Charter,” said Earth Charter Executive Director Mirian Vilela, “makes it possible to reach educators around the world and help them in their professional development to support the transition to peaceful and sustainable ways of living.”
About Earth Charter
The Earth Charter is an ethical framework for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society in the 21st century. It seeks to inspire a new sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility for the well-being of the whole human family, the greater community of life, and future generations. The Earth Charter provides a valuable educational instrument. It encourages to search for common ground in the midst of our diversity and to embrace a global ethic that is shared by an ever-growing number of people.
The CREATIVE EDUCATORS INTERNATIONAL NETWORK, Inc., (CEIN) is a non-profit NGO dedicated to inspiring educators who are implementing value-creating education in different ways. Through deepening understanding and empathy, CEIN is determined to lay the foundation for construction of a United Nations of Education.
*Stephanie Tansey: It is with deep sadness that we heard about the passing away of Stephanie Tansey on 31 March 2019. Stephanie was a great Earth Charter Champion! She carried the EC everywhere she went, China, Nigeria, Central Asia, USA and other places. We admired her tenacity and consistence over time. She will be missed. We are holding Stephanie in our thoughts and hearts.
May her soul rest in peace and may all the good and great work she did on this Earth continue to flourish.
