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.”<br />From: The Earth Charter Preamble<br />Andreas Hausler<br />PM/PA/Sustainable Design Leader<br />New York City<br />

  71. 71. “To me, it means doing the best you can every day to make the effort to live a sustainable life.

  72. 72. For me it means living close to work and commuting by bike, supporting local farmers and buying organics, reusing containers and picking recyclables out of the trash, mending clothes, unplugging electronics, taking shorter showers, and turning the heat down. I certainly don’t do everything I should, but I try to live conscientiously. I try to understand the impacts that my actions have on others, and on the planet, and make better choices wherever I can. <br />Jennine TalbotBoston<br />
