Earth Charter Youth Network
The Earth Charter youth network is a diverse, interactive global network representing over 50 countries from around the world. Members of our youth network have embraced the Earth Charter and its principles into their daily lives towards building a more sustainable future. The Earth Charter Initiative invites all young people to incorporate the Earth Charter as part of your activities, studies, discussion groups, workshops or work. You are encouraged to explore ways to use and promote the Earth Charter as appropriate and according to your context. Earth Charter Youth Groups organize local sustainability and peace building projects to bring the Earth Charter alive.
