A Voice For Earth

I've just come across this great book - A Voice For Earth - which is a collection of poems, essays, and stories that together give a voice to the ethical principles outlined in the Earth Charter.

The book hasn't been officially launched yet, but the authors will be speaking about it at the upcoming Miami Book Fair International.

Peter Blaze Corcoran, who is one of the editors of the book, is a professor of environmental studies and environmental education and director of the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education at Florida Gulf Coast University.

The Earth Charter, which was adopted in 2000, is a declaration of fundamental principles for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society for the 21st century. It has been endorsed by thousands of organizations and institutions.
