E-GLO 3 participants’ ideas and thoughts
I strong believe that the Earth Charter is a valuable document that needs the urgent endorsement of citizens of the Earth if we are to achieve sustainable development in our communities, societies and nations at large.
It shows how applicable and practical Earth Charter is. Also, it was inspiring to know how it all began from the start and know the diversity of initiatives that has been made and their outcomes.
Awesome and absolutely inspiring Video I listened to for the umpteenth time.The concepts in the video creates a challenge for me to walk the talk addressed in the ECI. Change like a ripple starts with a drop in the ocean and spreads to the shores.
The video is very valuable because it shows what amazing people stand behind the Earth Charter. It\'s amazing to realize that this document reflects common values all over the world that sound right whether you\'re in Russia, France, Ethiopia, India and wherever else.
I just can say that video generally says about EC how it was formed, why it was formed and how it works in different parts of The Earth! In general this video shows us how much the community of The World informed about EC and how they sense it!So, video tells us that we can reach anything if we speculate as it is said in the EC.
