- Promote the Earth Charter so that students can understand its vision and Indonesia’s role in the Earth Charter history.
- Identify the relationship between Green Teacher Project activities undertaken by the students based on the vision of the Earth Charter.
- Promote Earth Charter Initiatives in Indonesia to the students and encourage them to take actions inspired by the Earth Charter
Furthermore, I also brought up my own story and experience with the Earth Charter. It’s how and why I’m involved with the Earth Charter, how the Earth Charter inspires me, and how I initiated the first ECYG in Indonesia. By the end of January, the participants will organize an exhibition to show off their projects.
At the end, participants gave their testimony about their experience on this workshop and their hope about the Earth Charter:
Hopefully there will be more people aware and implement the principles of the Earth Charter.
Earth Charter could be the basic reference if we’d like to apply the values in our life. SSE Green Teacher is a new organization, so the members haven’t got the experience yet in joining something like this. We hope that Earth Charter and SSE Green Teacher could have better cooperation. Thank you. 🙂
Inspirational. Cool. The Earth Charter principles can be a guideline in making an activity. Earth Charter is not only a document but guide to make people aware to the environment.
Today was gone so fast because the activities are so much fun. The Earth Charter has raised my awareness to care about the mother earth. Many ideas came from the presentation to make the better world.
Want to join Earth Charter activities.
I hope that the activities/projects that I´m gonna do could help raising public awareness (especially students), so they would love the environment in accordance to the Earth Charter 🙂
Honestly, I´m really excited to join with the community and be a part of the Earth Charter. Together we will be taking good care of the earth for our life. I and my community will be promoting the Earth Charter to the public and doing inspired activities. Hopefully we can keep these programs on going to be implemented. Together we can!
My hope: (1) I will encourage my community to join the Earth Charter community (2) Inspiring more people by creating activities inspired by the Earth Charter principles (3) The activities that have been implemented by me with my friends in Jepara, can inspire many people.
Hopefully the Earth Charter and Education activities would inspire more people to take action to save the environment.
INCREDIBLE! Very inspiring! It´s much better to learn Earth Charter directly from the speaker. Actually, I am interested in Putri´s experiences on working with Earth Charter with many young fellows from all over the world. Hopefully in the future, environmental youth organizations will be growth and developed rapidly!
I want to join the Earth Charter. I’m sure there will be more people inspired if we keep campaigning to save the environment, reduce pollution, and promote the Earth Charter consistently.
Interesting. Inspiring. Fun. Meaningful. Hopefully the Earth Charter Youth will be improved more and more and succeed as well. Honestly, I was inspired to do many environmental activities with my friends and with Junior and High School students. I am also interested in being more committed to protecting the earth.
