The Spanish Ministry of Education is using the Earth Charter

Fundación Valores (Values Foundation), Earth Charter Affiliate, has signed a collaboration agreement with the Teachers’ Training Institute of the Spanish Ministry of Education to offer teacher training using the Earth Charter as a way to promote values and principles of sustainability through education. The training plan for 2010 will initiate in April, but Fundación Valores had already started the Earth Charter Teachers’ Training last trimester of 2009.
