The Earth Charter in Action
Toward a Sustainable World

Edited by Peter Blaze Corcoran
Foreword by Wangari Maathai
Preface by Mikhail Gorbachev and Maurice F. Strong

"This will be a book to be proud of!"
--Ruud Lubbers

This is the first book on the Earth Charter. The Charter is an integrated vision of caring for all life, of universal human rights, of economic justice, and of the creation of a culture of peace. The Earth Charter in Action is a collection of over seventy thematic and descriptive essays inspired by Earth Charter. It points toward the many possibilities of future utilization, including its ability to bridge the Islamic and Christian worlds and to work across the divide between the northern and southern hemispheres.
