Ethics in Urban Sustainable Development Earth Charter Cities Online Course    Tue Apr 21 to Fri Jun 5, 2020, Online

Cities are full of opportunities, but they also face many challenges. Rapid urbanization often threatens the environment, human health, and fair distribution of resources and funds.

In cities and local communities, sustainability and the quest to implement new solutions are more tangible than in any other place. These are places where urgent response is needed and where results can be more visible. More than anywhere else, urban areas have the critical mass to perform the changes we need on a global scale.

The Earth Charter is a document with 16 ethical principles to foster sustainable development. The Earth Charter Cities Manifesto is a call to action that was developed to help communities, cities, colleges and companies implement the Earth Charter.
