The Earth Charter is a declaration of fundamental principles for building a just, sustainable and peaceful global society in the 21st century.  Various UN agencies and visionary thinkers developed the Earth Charter over a ten-year period.  The final version was approved at UNESCO headquarters in Paris in the year 2000.  The Charter has been endorsed by countless nongovernmental organizations, including the United Nations University for Peace in Costa Rica.
