Our vision: A constitution for the earth
We want to create a constitution of the earth, based on scientific understanding and be above any political, religious, or cultural orientation, for the worldwide protection of our biosphere. Addressing the ongoing ecological crisis. A comprehensive and effective legal framework that transcends human-centric perspectives and recognizes the intrinsic value and rights of nature itself. By recognizing the rights of nature, a new normative framework that guides decision-making processes, promotes ecological restoration, and facilitates the transition towards sustainable practices across sectors can be established. This campaign offers a platform for collective action, enabling individuals and organizations to channel their efforts towards a common goal of securing a resilient and thriving planet for present and future generations.
Thus it has steering effect into all ranges, like e.g. the research and their adjustment, the financing, the ecological change to a cycle economy, which creates millions of new jobs.
A constitution can ensure that those responsible for environmental destruction are held accountable and that our planet is restored. The Constitution is the basic tool to provide the resources necessary for the ecological transformation of our planet. This powerful tool - enables the breakthrough of green technologies and other ecological inventions of science on a global scale. By creating a framework for governments to work together, we can ensure that these solutions are put into action now, not 10 or more years from now. This will help protect our planet and ensure that future generations have a healthy livelihood for all living things.
