The Earth Charter Youth Initiative

The Earth Charter Youth Initiative (ECYI) is a dynamic action-oriented youth network that promotes the principles in the Earth Charter. The Youth Initiative is active in over 25 countries and continues to grow. The diverse members of the ECYI, who are typically 18 to 35 years old, seek to embody the Earth Charter’s principles in their daily lives; share the Charter with others; organize local sustainable development projects; and participate in global decision-making processes. The new Earth Charter Youth Groups (ECYGs) have recently been founded in Finland, Latvia, Kenya, and Peru. The EC International Youth Coordinator, based in Stockholm, is working closely with the youth members of the Green Cross Sweden office to establish an ECYG in Göteborg.
