Manifesto for the Earth: Action Now for Peace, Global Justice and a Sustainable Future
Based on his many years of experience in international politics, Gorbachev appeals for urgent action based on a broad vision. This includes strengthening the UN and reforming the World Bank, the World Trade Organization, and the International Monetary Fund. To complement the Declaration on Human Rights and the Charter of the UN, he has coauthored the remarkable ?Earth Charter, ? based on four key principles: 1) Respect and Care for the Community of Life; 2) Ecological Integrity; 3) Social and Economic Justice; and 4) Democracy, Nonviolence, and Peace.
