More About Little Earth Charter

The Little Earth Charter principles are:

Life – respect and consideration for all living things, regardless of how big or small.  

Interconnected – each and every living this has their own special qualities and is connected through needing each other. 

Family – means to ensure all in the human family are well treated. 

Earth – means to take care of the earth and understand that earth is the home we share. We should take care of the earth for us and future generations.  

Peace – to live in peace and to cooperate with others to resolve conflicts in a non-violent way, rather seek resolutions that are fair to everyone.  

Love – means to be truthful and kind to others, and to understand the needs of each person you meet.  

Future – ensuring that people both now and into the future can live in health, peace, and harmony on our beautiful earth.
