Make a World of Difference: Hearing Each Other, Healing the Earth
Sakurai, Hiro
Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, v4 n2 p283-286 Sep 2010
This article is the edited text of the presentation made by the author at the Parliament of the World's Religions in Melbourne, Australia, 3-9 December 2009. The session was titled "Healing the Earth with Care and Concern: Religious Responses to the Earth Charter". The article highlights some of the efforts that the Soka Gakkai International (SGI) has organised in promoting the Earth Charter over the years. It also sheds light on how the inspiration and determination by one individual has led many of SGI's activities to success while discussing the resonance between the Earth Charter and Buddhist principles as well as the ideals of SGI. Lastly, the article provides some thoughts on how the Earth Charter can increase its contribution to the UN. (Contains 2 notes.)
