SGI Joins Earth Charter Event

Global 2022

On June 29, the Earth Charter International (ECI) hosted an online event, “Celebrating the Earth Charter promise: Intergenerational collaboration and transformative learning,” to mark the 22nd anniversary of the launch of the Earth Charter. In her opening remarks, ECI Executive Director Mirian Vilela commended the SGI (Soka Gakkai International) for its long-term involvement and support, which predates the charter’s launch. Tamy Kobashikawa of the Soka Amazon Institute presented the institute’s activities as an example of how the Earth Charter is being put into action and introduced the “Seeds of Hope & Action: Making the SDGs a Reality” exhibition, a joint initiative between the ECI and the SGI.
