We congratulate the EARTH University in Guácimo, Costa Rica, for its Earth Charter endorsement. This endorsement took place in a ceremony on 22 September 2017, in the framework of the world day without cars.
The Rector of EARTH University, Mr. Arturo Condo, and the Executive Director of the Earth Charter International, Ms. Mirian Vilela, spoke during this ceremony. Mr. Condo mentioned that with the Earth Charter “we are gaining more elements of a global language” for their actions in favor of sustainable agriculture. EARTH University mission and projects are very aligned with the principles of the Earth Charter and have been realizing them into practice; therefore, it is important to articulate these actions with the language of global ethical principles.
