Tomorrow’s Dreamers ask:

WHAT is your dream? What are your ideas for a better world? 

This is the perfect place to express your biggest dreams on how to make the world a better place.

The Earth Charter, crafted by visionaries and launched in the year 2000, turns conscience into action for a thriving Earth. In 2021-22 we are collecting stories and artwork of individuals and organizations that are bringing light and life to the values and principles of the Earth Charter.

During Earth Month, we will showcase Expressions through the literary and visual arts on this blog and on the April 20 EarthFlash! Games Show. People of all ages can submit stories, essays, poetry, drawings and paintings or photographs. Together, we are Illuminating the Earth Charter, using this short version of the document:

  • We stand at a critical moment in Earth’s history, a time when humanity must choose its future.
  • We are one human family and one Earth community with a common destiny.
  • We affirm these interdependent principles:
    • Respect and care for the community of life
    • Ecological integrity
    • Social and economic justice
    • Democracy, nonviolence and peace (with a focus on education)
  • Let ours be a time remembered for the awakening of a new reverence for life, the firm resolve to achieve sustainability, the quickening of the struggle for justice and peace, and the joyful celebration of life.
