“The Earth Charter has been an impetus to rekindle my motivations to work in my community, not only because I managed to feel part of a strong international community, but because it connected me with myself at a time of global crisis. With the Leadership, Sustainability and Ethics course, I recognized the skills that I need to develop to strengthen my leadership in Sustainability. I want to bring the Earth Charter to my community, no one should be left out of this life project.”
