Sustainability and Globalization
We stand at a
critical moment in Earth’s history, a time when humanity must choose
its future. As the world becomes increasingly interdependent and
fragile, the future at once holds great peril and great promise. To
move forward we must recognize that in the midst of a magnificent
diversity of cultures and life forms we are one human family and one Earth community with a common destiny. We must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace.
Towards this end, it is imperative that we, the peoples of Earth,
declare our responsibility to one another, to the greater community of
life, and to future generations.
